Its toilet roll tube craft of the week! I had a week off last week, because I’m attempting to save enough tubes to make an advent calendar with them before the 1st of December. But we’ve all been a little poorly this weekend and didn’t fancy doing much, so we’ve returned to our old favourite easy crafting.
These are really cute little houses, and there’s a lot you can change and do differently. I’ve got a pack of really cool patterned card from the range (£1.99 and I use it for everything, well worth a look!) but you could draw your own, as well as changing the windows and doors.
You Will Need:
- Toilet Roll Tubes
Firstly, paint your toilet roll tubes, these can either be all one colour or go crazy and do some cool patterns.
While they’re drying, draw some windows on card and cut them out.
Then make the rooftops. I drew around a kid’s bowl on my patterned card, and cut it out. Then fold into 4 to find the centre. Next using the centre point, cut out a wedge. Then fold it round, and put a bit of glue on where the edges overlap.
Once the tubes are dry, glue on the windows, and cut out a door. Then Put a little glue around the top edge of the tube, press the roof on a hold in place for about 10 seconds until it starts to stick.
Note…The Lego men don’t actually fit through my doors…make bigger doors!
