Making a Recycled Twine Dispenser

March 20, 2019

A recycled lint roller being reused as a twine dispenser.I made this rope or twine dispenser. It's so easy to make; all you need is an empty lint roller, tape, scissors, a pen, and the twine to make a very easy twine or small rope dispenser. It's nice and neat and will be much easier to use after it's on your new dispenser.



  • empty lint roller
  • two cardboard tubes from toilet paper
  • tape
  • scissors
  • twine
Supplies for making a recycled twine dispenser.


  1. Take your empty lint roller and 2 toilet paper holders and cut straight through the first toilet paper holder.
  2. Two toilet paper cardboard tubes cut in half lengthwise.
  3. Place it onto the lint roller. Mark it so that it moves freely.
  4. A cut cardboard tube wrapped around a lint roller.

  5. Use the first toilet paper holder to mark and cut the second toilet paper holder and put it around the lint roller cylinder. Carefully place the second toilet paper cylinder so that the cuts are opposite each other then tape down one side.
  6. Two cardboard tubes placed inside one another around a recycled lint roller.

  7. Make sure before you tape down the other side there's free play and that it's not too tight. The reason you use two toilet paper cylinders is one will not go completely around without a gap so you're just making a larger one .
  8. Cardboard tubes taped onto a recycled lint remover.

  9. On the lint roller, make a slit to securely hold your twine, then begin winding it around the cylinder until you're done.

Two of the three things here are recycled. It's a great fun project and because the lint roller has a hole in the end of the handle, I can easily hang it above my craft desk and access it anytime I need it! You can use this for ribbon, twine, so many different uses!

I was tired of the roll of strapping tape and the twine falling out of the pantry every time I needed something next to them. So today, I saw and empty jar and went "Hey!".
