It requires just a few basic items to start, and you will love this. Sometimes the best craft ideas come from the most improbable places. So without further ado, let’s know about Mandala…

What Is a Mandala?

The mandala is a Hindu and Buddhist symbol, they all have a concentric (circular) character. The figure stands for the universe and symbolizes the notion of an endless life. Mandalas are quite popular in house decoration. You can find many tapestries, cushions, carpets, linen art, etc. Almost every bohemian-style room includes mandala accents.

Wall Art Toilet Paper Roll Crafts

That was my first toilet paper roll project, but definitely not my last. I was teaching special education. We painted toilet paper rolls in my classroom, but I did nothing for my house. Toilet paper rolls are multipurpose and free of cost. I loved working with the rolls as they are easy to shape. It’s like working with strings.

Material Needed

  • toilet paper rolls
  • scissor
  • plier
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • glue gun
  • glue gun stick
  • stapler
  • the tube from one gift paper wrap roll.

Make sure you have collected enough rolls of paper before you begin working on crafts. You will need 20-25 rolls of toilet tissue for this craft. Before you start working, check that the rolls have the same color and thickness. If you still use the same brand of toilet paper, this will not be an issue.

I used eight different forms to make my mandala. In the picture below, I used the parts of the first column. Select the pieces you want and create your unique wall decoration. The names of the shapes come out of my imagination so you don’t find them anywhere else.

Cut TP Rolls

Press the roll of tissue paper and make 1.5 cm marks on both sides. Cut 1.5 cm wide strips. When you have plenty of paper rings, you can start making the parts. I used a total of 121 pieces, and five long strips cut into the gift wrapping paper roller.

To create my design you will require a ring, 14 shells, eight teardrops, eight fish, 34 pairs of leaves, eight mounds, 12 petals, 12 spikes, 12 tendrils, and 12 buds.

To make a beautiful sharp look, use your pliers and press every pointed part. I used pencils, my fingers, and the tip of the brush to roll up the tip of the paper, and to make the curved parts.

You can also draw the piece on paper and use it as a pattern to make them the same. So you can get a perfectly symmetric look.

How to Shape TP Rolls

Here’s the fun part. Gluing everything together is much quicker than creating the elements. Pay attention not to burn yourself with the glue gun, while holding and pressing the pieces. Stick the shells onto the ring one at a time. I glued them on the base and sides together for maximum force.

Place the teardrops around the swirls. Glue the bottoms and sides.

Put a pair of leaves in each drop and glue them together.

Stick the fish where they meet outside.

Pick up a long strip and paste it around them.

Pick up your leaves and place them around the mandala and stick them down.

Stick two long strips together and roll back. Stick it to each piece.

Clip with stapler, edges of mounds.

Arrange it around in line with teardrops. First, glue the parts you cut, then all the under.

Stick two additional long strips together and wrap. Attach the mounds to each mogul.

Stick the petals and buds into a big circle. Stick them to the bottom.

I put ’em in line with the teardrops in the middle.

Then stick the tendrils and spikes collectively.

Place a tendril and spikes in each petal. Stick the ends and side of the swirls too.

Voila! A beautiful mandala wall ornament.

Quick Tips

If you want it to be colorful, paint the rolls of toilet paper before cutting and making the shapes. You can use acrylic paint or spray paint.

Look closely at your paper rolls before you begin the project. Pick a higher-quality roll. Within the roll, if the layers peel, the forms will become ugly. I had to stick them here and there as well, but it’s normal.

Use teardrops as a ref when gluing outer layers. That way, you can get a more symmetrical aspect.

If you put too much glue, you’ll get flying threads everywhere.

Final Words

This craft is simple and almost at no cost. I like the way the mandala turned out. One of the top cons of this craft we can say is time-consuming, it takes a lot of time to make and it’s kind of complex so kids don’t make this on their own. However, if some adults assist them in making then they may make it.

It takes an hour to make these pieces, but it is worth it. And be prepared for that your finger is gonna hurt after all the shaping, pressing, and cutting.

We recommended making this in batches. Batch work always rocks.

Did you enjoy that thing? Do you need a step-by-step tutorial on how to make the shapes? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section. Also, let us know when you’re going to make this awesome wall decor art?
