When you’re a crafter you’re always looking for different items to craft with. I am always saving toilet paper and paper towel rolls and one of my followers gave me an amazing idea for an Americana decoration. 

The supplies you will need are:

1. Toilet paper roll

2. Hole puncher

3. Paint (I am using a blue and a white)

4. Ribbons (I am also using a scrap piece of denim)

5. Paint brush

6. Scissors

The first step is to punch holes into your toilet roll. I am punching holes about a half inch apart and going around the whole roll.

You will also want to punch 3 holes in the top of your toilet paper roll spacing them evenly apart.

Once your holes are punched then you will paint your toilet roll.

Next you will want to cut your strips of ribbon. I have 9 holes so I will cut 9 strips.

I cut mine about 19 inches long.

You will then slip your ribbon through the bottom holes and pull them to be even. I then tied a knot to hold it in place.

I alternated my ribbons as I went around. You can use the same ribbon for the top if you want. I cut 3 strips from my piece of denim for the top holes.

You then tie your ribbons to the top forming a hanger.

You can decorate these any way you want. I am using some white paint to add a few stars onto my blue.

These are so easy to make and I think it would be a great craft to do with your kids. You can hang these anywhere in your home or on a covered porch. I am placing these onto my Americana tree.

I hope you will all give this a try!
