Toilet Roll Crafts – Let’s Make Sophisti-Cats

I think I need help with all this toilet paper roll hoarding!! but the biggest response I get here on the blog and on facebook and pinterest is for my toilet roll crafts. Toilet roll crafts, or kitchen paper tubes if you prefer, are the absolute best for frugal crafting at home and in classrooms.

My parade of toilet roll crafts of late include some bats, cool as cucumber ninjas, yarn woven bracelets, halloween cats and one of my favourites… wiggly giggly octopus.

Today I’m sharing how to make Sophisti-Cats

They’re working cats, snappy dressers and love to shop!

Start by folding down the two sides of the paper roll to create the ears.

Then just paint all over with the white paint and leave aside to dry.

Lastly just draw or paint on the cats face and clothes to create Sophisti-Cats of your very own….. I bet they talk all posh!!

Happy cat crafting
