What kid doesn't love playing with the empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls? We just love this classy wall hanging by Just a Girl — but you could totally add some color to it to brighten it up for a kid's room. And the estimated cost for this cool work of art? $15 — you can't beat that or the fun time you'll have making it with your child.
