Weird and wonderful toilet paper roll decor ideas

According to Kimberly-Clark, the makers of Charmin toilet paper, the average household goes through about 240 rolls of toilet paper a year. Now that's a lot of garbage. In fact, paper waste makes up the majority of our household waste, according to the EPA, and toilet paper and paper towel rolls are a big part of that. So how can we fix all that waste production?

You might've guessed where this is heading — right into your recycling bin to turn those rolls into something new. You'll never believe all the fun ways you can upcycle toilet paper rolls into centerpieces of your home decor.
