Don't throw away those old cloth scraps you've accumulated. It just takes a few little pieces to sew together a toilet paper roll holder. If you aren't good with sewing, you can also use a hot glue gun (as I often do). The most important part is to make sure you have enough fabric to wrap around a roll of toilet paper, plus a couple inches. This bunny head has a pocket in the back so I can refill it with sacks of used coffee grounds, which work as a bathroom deodorizer!

I take 3 metal empty coffee cans and cut the tops and bottoms out of two of them. I stack one on top of the one with the bottom still in it and solder it the bottom of the fist tube to the top of the can with the bottom.
This is an old craft revisited and made much simpler now with a glue gun.
I take a towel rack instead of a toilet roll holder just leave one end loose enough to slide the rod off to put more on it I can get 4 rolls on a wooden towel rack. By Debbie
Do you have a paper toilet holder that needs replacing? Well here is a quick fix for the time being. You can make one with things laying around your home.

I am looking for a knitted pattern for a toilet tissue holder. Just the other day, I saw a handmade toilet tissue holder at a flea market but it was already sold. I tried to take a picture so that I could attempt to make one when I got home, but thought that would be tacky.
Awesome post Barbara! Kudos to your daughter!
I use an empty oatmeal box decorated to match my bathrooms (contact paper works well as it is easily cleaned as is the plastic top). They hold two rolls perfectly. An extra lid can be placed on bottom also to keep it free from bathroom "spills"

I built this toilet paper holder for my daughter's birthday. I think it is just great.
