This is a fun and easy project, and a great way to make something upcycled that you can really use!

The cool thing about making these is that there is no limit to the about of designs and or variable you could use while doing them.

The project we have done is wtih brown rafia but you could use christmas colours for christmas or any colour that suits you event. You could even drow the beads and just stick a scrap booking trinket onto the side to make them for a wedding or baby shower. The ideas are endless.

The amount of toilet rolls consumed daily is quite scary and is a great motivational factor in why we should all start to look at our waste and think of inovative ideas to do with junk. 

What you need to make upcycled toilet roll serviette rings:

The inner cardboard roll of kitchen towel or toilet roll

Raffia, or lengths of ribbon

Old beads to recycle



Step 1

Cut your cardboard roll to your desired width for your serviette rings. I have made mine 3.5cm wide.

Step 2

Take a length of raffia and tie it around the cardboard roll, using a double knot.

Step 3

Pull the double knot to the inside of the cardboard toilet roll to conceal it.

Step 4

Continue to weave the raffia or ribbon around the recycled cardboard toilet roll, until it is completely covered. If you run out of raffia, add an extra length of raffia by tying another knot and pulling it to the inside of your recycled cardboard roll.

Thread one of your beads onto a loose end of the raffia and tie a double knot below it to keep it in place.
