Fall is approaching – that means it’s time to crafty in the Bathroom
No, this is not going to be a blog post featuring the little Charmin bears talking about their potty habits. We suppose you don’t even have to be in the bathroom to do these crafts, but we are going get the supplies to do some fun projects from the good ole’ oval office.
DRF is on a roll this season, enticing all of our customers to remember to contact DRF when they have a plumbing installation or call DRF (630-615-7000) when your water heater fails. If you don’t already know this, we are the water heater experts in all of Chicagoland. We install 10,000 water heaters a year on average. In Cook, Will, DuPage, McHenry, Kane and Kendall counties we’ve installed over 100,000 water heaters.
What does DRF stand for? Done Right First.
Doesn’t everyone want something done right the first time? Of course. That goes without saying.
Without further delay drum roll please…
This season’s toilet paper roll craft idea extravaganza by DRF Trusted Property Solutions:
The Good Ole’ Custom Bird Feeder
Pretty sure almost every child has done this one. It’s a classic.
Toilet Paper Rolls
Step 1 Spread the peanut butter onto the tube with a butter knife. Take note that if you spread it on too thin you won’t have as many seeds sticking, be a little generous were not making a sandwich!
Step 2 Coat the tube with bird seed. Have fun and get the seeds on there! Roll the tube on a plate but you can also try putting it on with your hands, it’s your choice!
Step 3 And for the last step tie some string through the tube making sure you leave enough hanging space so the bids can sit comfy!
Crepe Paper (found at most party stores)
Elmer’s Glue or Hot Glue Gun
Step 1 Wrap toilet paper roll with crepe paper until desired thickness is achieved.
Step 2 Apply glue to back of eyes and peel crepe paper edges back so you can place eyes underneath the paper slightly.
Toilet Paper Roll
2 Golf Tees

Step 3 Take green paint and paint the rest of your Frankie
Step 4 Glue googley eyes on below hairline.

Toilet Paper Roll Pumpkins
1 Sheet of Brown Felt
1 Sheet of Green Felt
3 Lime Green “Pipe Cleaners” (no pun intended)
Quilters Fabric Squares
Step 1 Lay fabric square out and place full toilet paper roll on top of fabric in center.
Step 2 Take each of the 4 corners and place them into the open end of the roll. Keep tucking until the ends of the fabric are inside and the outer edge around the roll is taught.
Step 3 Slice the brown felt width wise into 3 strips of brown felt.
Step 4 Roll up the strips and insert them into the hole where the fabric was tucked.
Step 5 Cut leaf shapes out of green felt and insert into tucking hole.
