    Extra Toilet Paper Roll Holder

    If you've ever been in the situation where no one else replaced the empty toilet paper roll and you didn't find out until it was too late, then this tutorial might be just what you need.

    I'm making them to give as Christmas gifts. They are quick to make...less than an hour start to finish, are great stash busters, and you can assembly line sew them. You can customize the fabrics to match decor or go the novelty route which is what I did.

    This is my first try at a tutorial but I hope you like it. I've included this in both pdf and word so hopefully you'll be able to open one or the other. They are identical.

    Enjoy

    Wow! that is a neat idea. I have a pattern where you can make a tower out of large coffee cans. I need to find it and post it here. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you! This is just what I need, my poor old bunny that's been doing the job for at least 10 years needs to retire.

    You hang the straps on the spindle on either side of the roll then pop the spindle back on it's holder. Or if you have the metal hook kind of holder, you slide one strap then the roll then the other strap.

    If you make the straps too much wider they don't fit right and bunch up around the roll already on the spindle.

    Q: how many men does it take to 'install' a fresh roll of toilet paper?
    A: nobody knows -- there's no record of any man ever attempting such a tricky installation job!

    This is really easy. Take 3 large coffee cans and cut the bottom out of two of them and then stack them on top of each other and secure them to each other with tape making sure the one with the bottom still on it is on the bottom. Cover it with fabric or shelving paper and you use the coffee can lid for the top after decorating. My friend has one in her bathroom.
