Craft project using empty toilet paper rolls:
ELECTRIC CORD KEEPER
I have a fun and easy project for you to try. It is not an original idea, but nonetheless, I have found it to be very useful and a quick DIY. You can upcycle your empty toilet paper rolls and make this fun project. It makes a great gift for kids and grandkids to do on a rainy afternoon. Just follow the steps below to create your own Electric Cord Keeper.
These are supplies and tools you will need:
- Empty toilet paper roll
- Decorative duct tape. I found mine at Walmart for $3.48 a roll.
Cut 3 pieces of tape 5 inches long for each. I stick them on edge of the counter, like shown below.
Place a piece of the measured tape on the toilet paper roll, overlapping ½ inch on each end.
Cut a V-shaped notch in each end. This will help the tape to conform better to the inside.
Press the notched edges to the inside of both ends of the toilet paper roll. Be sure to press down firmly so it sticks to the cardboard.
Place the second piece of duct tape on the roll, overlapping a smidgen on the previous piece of tape and repeat steps 4 and 5.
Place the third piece of tape, also overlapping a smidgen on the previous piece of tape. Follow steps 4 and 5 again to complete your Electric Cord Keeper.
Voila! You’re done!
This picture shows how to use your Electric Cord Keeper around the house or in your garage. You might even find more uses for this handy, dandy DIY project!
