With summer right around the corner I know we will be entertaining much more. And not being one to splurge on fancy, expensive accessories to “pretty”up our home, I’m always on the hunt for frugal (and easy) ways to bring beauty into corners of our home. I was recently introduced to the art of toilet paper origami. Yes, you read that right, toilet paper origami! Some people even call it toile-gami
I love that this easy to re-create, doesn’t cost a penny and instantly adds a touch of “Oooh, wow!” to that space in your bathroom.
I’m yet to master making cranes, boats and flowers on my toilet rolls, but for now I’m content with this simple fan-fold flower in a cone pot design.

Here’s how you can accessorize your toilet paper rolls with Toilet Paper Origami (Tutorial}
Step 1: Unravel a roll of toilet paper (over not under)
Step 2: Fold over 1 square
Step 3: Now turn the roll over (so that the roll now unravels under) and fold about half a square’s length over.
Step 4: Fold one tip to look like you’ve dog-eared the paper
Step 5: Now dog-ear the other side
Step 6: Make sure both dog-eared ends meet and you don’t have a gap between them (as below)
Step 7: Now carefully turn the roll over again, making sure the folds stay in place and voila your cone shaped pot is ready
Step 8: Now take two squares length of toilet paper (It’s best if you pull this out before you begin creating your pot or you can pull this off another roll)
Step 9: Fan fold this (or create pleats) ensuring each fold is of equal width
Step 10: Now fold the fan in half
Step 11: Gently place it into your pot
And there you have it…
A simple but elegant way to accessorize your toilet roll, that costs nothing but your time.
