P.S. In the materials section, I share a tip you can use if you don’t have enough toilet paper rolls at the moment 😉.
These are the supplies you need for these crafts:
- Halloween Toilet Paper Roll Templates (get them here or at the end of this post)
- 8 Toilet Paper Rolls
- White Paper or Cardstock
- Glue Stick
TIP: If you don’t have enough toilet paper rolls around, just print your templates on cardstock and roll them into cylinders.
How to Make Halloween Toilet Paper Roll Crafts
To assemble all of your characters, you will have to start the same way:
- First, get the templates and print them on white cardstock or paper. We prefer cardstock for sturdiness and durability.
- Cut out all the pieces.
- Align a toilet paper roll with a rectangle and secure it on one side with tape.
- Add glue to the other side of the rectangle.
- Tape it on the back to cover the tp roll.
- This is how your tubes should be looking by now. Let them dry and start adding all the extra details.
Vampire Toilet Paper Roll
Believe it or not, you don’t have to add anything extra to your vampire. It’s ready to be used!
Mummy Toilet Paper Roll
Just like our friend above, the mummy will be completed by now. These two are the easiest to put up from this printable set.
Bat Toilet Paper Roll
To make your bat, glue the wings behind the toilet paper roll and add the ears on top.
Cat Toilet Paper Roll
The cat is equally easy. Just glue the ears on top of the toilet paper roll and the tail behind it.
Frankenstein Toilet Paper Roll
To finish off your Frankenstein, simply fold the bolts along the green square, apply glue to that square, and paste it on your tp roll.
Pumpkin Toilet Paper Roll
Glue the stem to the top of your tp roll to complete your pumpkin.
Zombie Toilet Paper Roll
Just like the one above, to complete the zombie you only need to glue the brain to the top of your roll.
Witch Toilet Paper Roll
- To make the witch’s hair, you have to cut each orange piece and fold it in half through the line. Glue it in the middle and once it’s dry, cut the circular border.
- To make the hat, fold the template into a cone and use glue to secure it in place. Then, cut and fold the short strips outwards.
- For the dress, cut the two black rectangles and their strips. Using a pencil, curl the strips.
- Wrap the dress around the toilet paper roll. Start with the bottom one and align it with the end of the roll. Then, add the second layer and align it with the top of the black area.
- Finally, curl the hair, glue one at each side of the face, and top it off with the hat.
