How to Make Halloween Toilet Paper Roll Crafts
Here are the 4 different toilet paper rolls we made with step-by-step instructions on how to make them.
1. Paint your paper roll orange.
2. Cut out the eyes, nose and mouth out of black construction paper and glue on.
3. Cut the stem from an extra paper roll and glue to the top. We like to use Elmers Xtreme glue for this part.
4. Cut a strip of green cardstock and curl around a pencil then glue beside the stem.
1. Paint your paper roll lime green.
2. Cut out the eyebrows and mouth from black construction paper and glue on. Glue the googly eyes on top of the eyebrows.
3. For the hair, cut a strip of black construction paper. Then cut out zig zag marks on the bottom of this strip. Glue this to the top of the paper roll.
1. Glue on the googly eyes.
2. Cut out strips of toilet paper and glue them on top of your paper roll to look like a mummy. It’s ok if you leave some spaces not covered.
1. Paint the paper roll with whatever color paint you’d like for the face.
2. Cut out the hair from black construction paper and glue to the top. When cutting out the hair, make a peak so that it comes down close to where your eyes will be.
3. Glue on the googly eyes.
4. Draw on the mouth with a sharpie.
5. Cut out two small triangles for the fangs with white cardstock and glue on.
6. Add a red glitter bow to the front of the paper roll.
7. Cut out a large triangle from red cardstock and glue to the back.

This are so cute! I tried to make the pumpkin one but it definitely did NOT look like the picture. I used kids washable paint since my 3-year-old and I were working together, and it hardly made the roll look orange AT ALL. It was way too transparent. In the picture, it looks perfect, like a piece of orange construction paper! Any tips on the paint?
Yes we use non-toxic acrylic paint and it goes on with much better coverage!
Super cute! Had a blast making them.
I’m going to get the stuff for these crafts.
