Recycled Art Made From Toilet Paper Rolls

Apr 30, 2010

Toilet Paper Roll ArtRecently, I found toilet paper rolls recycled into amazing art! I contacted the artist to find out how she made these beautiful toilet paper roll creations. Her name is Anastassia Elias, a 33 year old woman from Paris, France.

Anastassia Elias is a full-time artist and illustrator. Her preferred medium is paper collages and paintings. She has illustrated two children’s books and exhibited her paintings.

The toilet paper roll sculptures were inspired by the artists’ everyday observations. She cut small paper shapes that she places inside the toilet paper rolls with tweezers. Using paper that is the same color as the roll gives the illusion that the paper figures are part of the toilet paper roll. They have a whimsical quality, capturing moments in time that may otherwise be overlooked or seen as mundane in a busy world.

Toilet Paper Roll Art by Anastassia EliasQ & A with Anastassia Elias:

Q: What was your inspiration for reusing toilet paper rolls for art?

A: I have fun to find what can I do with recuperated materials. And one day I looked at an empty roll and wondered if I can do something with it. And later, with no reason, I had an idea.

Q: How long does it take to make each toilet paper sculpture?

A: I need few hours to make one piece, 2-3 hours on average.

Q: What is special about using a mundane part of every day life to create something beautiful?

A: Every day we take the same road to go working, we make the same gestures to prepare a morning coffee. All these small events of everyday go unnoticed. But it is they who make a life. So I wanted to put these neglected events on a pedestal and to show that everyday life is not boring.

Patron Saint Series Featuring Recycled CDsQ: What other recycled art sculptures (if any) have you made?

A: I used old CDs to make the series “Patron Saints”. Also I made the series “Hunger” by using rusks and different recuperated materials.

All you need is a few supplies and a child's imagination!

When it comes to making something out of something that doesn’t seem to exciting, leave it to kids to come
up with the best idea ever. Toilet Paper crafts, like Toilet Paper Roll puppets, can be a great way for your child to show off some creativity while using easy to find materials right at home. Here’s how to make one of your own:

Materials Needed:
Toilet Paper and/or Paper Towel Rolls
– Craft Sticks
– Glue
– Scissors
– Construction Paper
– Various Craft Supplies (felt, moving eyes, yarn, etc.)


Very simple!
Decorate the cardboard toilet paper rolls to make different people or animals. You can even cut them to different heights. Use the misc. craft supplies to make hair, clothes, mouths, etc. Use the scissors to cut out the details you want in 3-D, or add on other craft supplies. If you’re feeling really artistic, you can also paint your rolls to resemble just about anything!
Glue the craft sticks inside the bottom edge of the cardboard roll for handles, so you can have a puppet show later! Remember – be creative!
