“Dispenser” is perhaps not the most accurate word to use, because it doesn’t actually dispense the toilet paper. Sorry. But it does neatly contain it for you, in a discreet yet visible way, so that no guest ever feels the need to rummage under your sink for an emergency re-stocking.
I have this thing for re-using empty food containers; it’s kind of an addicting habit. Egg cartons, coffee cans, and now oatmeal canisters. I’m always looking for ways to recycle and upcycle containers that would otherwise be thrown away.
Thankfully, it’s easy to do with a few simple supplies. For this particular container upcycle, all you need is:
- an oatmeal canister (it’s the perfect diameter for double rolls of toilet paper)
- wrapping paper (or 2 sheets of scrapbooking paper)
- coordinating ribbon
- glue stick
