Love through a loo roll

Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a home-made gift, even one made out of old toilet paper tubes. Here are our top 10 loved up loo rolls.

Disclaimer: some of these may be more suited to an activity with your children than a present for your other half, like this cute cupid.
Valentine’s Day seems to have taken on some Christmas traditions for the home with this heart-motif wreath…
 … and Valentine’s tree decorations (you might notice these are made of paper and not strictly speaking toilet roll, but the principles could easily be adapted).
If you’re going to have a Valentine’s tree, you may as well go the whole hog and create a banner...
… table centrepiece …
… or suncatchers for outside.
Jewellery is a bog standard Valentine’s Day present and these necklaces will especially appeal to children, who are sure to love making, wearing and giving them.

Make giving chocolates more personal with these decorative holders.
For more skilled committed crafters who really want that personalised touch, turn an old toilet roll tube into a gift tag or pull out card.
You can buy this example from etsy.com or have a look here for a guide on how to make your own.

Finally, for the true romantic there’s this mini album – the perfect place to keep your Valentine’s memories.

  1. I love the Cupid loo roll. Although, if I got that as a gift on Valentine's Day, I might be a bit upset. Although, one year, I got a ladle as a gift, so maybe the Cupid loo roll would've been better than that!
