We drink a lot of coffee. I use three pound coffee cans. I save the plastic lid. You will need 3 three pound cans. Cut the bottom out of the first can, cut the bottom and top out of the second can. Then take all three cans and electrical tape them into a long tube. After taping them all together, use your favorite Con-tac paper to cover the whole thing.
Awesome ! Great idea i will do this one a.s.a.p (10/06/2006)
We've used coffee cans for toilet paper on canoe trips for years. (10/06/2006)

My grandmother does this, but she uses thin towels and a wash cloth for the lid. She uses whatever color matches the bathroom of the person she is making it for. The lid from one of the coffee cans you put the wash cloth under it and bring the sides up to the top and secure with hot glue then hot glue in flowers to hide the ends. (10/06/2006)
I have been making the Toilet Paper Holders for years as I have three boys (who are all on their own) and everytime I went to the bathroom there was never any toilet paper. So out of desperation I came up with this idea: 3 large coffee cans, take the bottoms of two cans off. If you have a glue gun glue them together or use the glue 800. I then take inexpensive towels roll them and cut the excess off (save as you will be using it for the cover), Then with glue gun seal the two sides down the back (the seam). The top of the towel keep it just below the top of the coffee can.
