If you’re looking for a fun and easy DIY to do with your friends and family using supplies you already have at home, these DIY toilet paper roll crackers are perfect! My good friend and the blogs food editor is in town and we have been working on some DIYs and recipes for you all. And these toilet paper roll crackers were on the top of our list. We sat down, pulled out some toilet paper and all my crafting supplies and got creative to make these beautiful toilet paper roll crackers.
We filled the crackers with a small gift and some confetti and we think they are perfect for any holiday or New Years table setting. Be creative, fill the toilet paper cracker with something for your loved ones and watch as they have fun opening the cracker and finding a small gift inside. Although these crackers don’t actually crack, there are some tutorials online as to what you need to make them crack. We wanted to use supplies we already had at home. So, these toilet paper crackers need to be opened on one end and the confetti and gift falls out as a surprise.

Directions – diy toilet paper roll crackers
Start by looking through your gift wrap supplies and use tissue paper and wrapping paper that you love and goes well together.
Take your toilet paper roll and fill it with some confetti and/or a small gift. We filled ours with some hand lotion and a Mala (bracelet) by North Pacific Co.
Cut your tissue paper to 14 x 9 inches. Place the toilet paper roll in the center, taping on one end to secure. Now wrap the tissue paper around the roll and tape the other end.
Twist the sides of the tissue paper and use a string or ribbon to tie the ends to secure and tie a bow to make it look nice.
Now, this is the part where you can get super creative. Use wrapping paper cut to 5.5 x 4.5 inches to glue onto the middle of the toilet paper roll cracker. Or, instead of wrapping paper, use some string to go across and make a design. We even used some pretty fabric and glued that onto the middle of of one toilet paper roll cracker!
And there you have it. Place these toilet paper roll crackers on some pretty dinner plates as a part of the table setting. And watch as your friends and family open them up to find a gift inside!
