Today, November 15th, is the 13th annual America Recycles Day! What better way to celebrate than to get some craft inspiration for recycling something EVERY American family has in their home?

I have become obsessed with the website, Pinterest, especially the DIY and Crafts section.  It has become a part of my daily routine just like this blog or Facebook. Check it out when you have time, you’ll get addicted too!

Because of my interest in crafts and recycling, I noticed some ingenious repurposed toilet paper roll projects that people were “pinning”. For example, I saw a pin that creatively turned a toilet paper roll into a gift box.  It was adorable and instantly made my craft to do list.  Embellished with ribbon and paper, you would have no idea it was a cardboard toilet paper roll.

I decided to do a Pinterest search on toilet paper rolls and found these very artistic ideas.  They are definitely worth checking out.  Recycling toilet paper rolls into art, one would never guess, seems pretty hip. These designs, some simple and some complicated are all beautiful and definitely inspiring!
