Toilet Roll People

These guys are a little bit cute :)  I tried drawing faces, but I have no skill in that department so I photocopied* these faces from my favourite fabric pattern covers and laminated them for extra durability.

We then used coloured paper to cover the toilet rolls for the 'body'.  The sky is the limit to what you could do here but with my two little ones being so small we kept it simple.  I think ribbon, wool, fabric and glitter pens would all be fun to try out one day.

A couple of slits in the top of each roll provided something to slip each head into and we now have a family of little people.

When these toilet rolls get ratty, it is a great excuse to craft some more :)

*Photocopying is probably against copyright, but I am hoping my toilet roll people don't offend the designers in question :)


  1. OH, they're so cute... I can see a lot more toilet roll people/creatures popping up around blogland soon.

  2. Awww cute! I'm sure the copyright police won't mind.
