Toilet Paper Roll Halloween Crafts

I love toilet paper roll crafts. Weird, I know. But the fact that the rolls are plentiful and they’re a great way to teach kids about recycled crafts is so much better than spending a ton of money on new supplies.

Since most seasonal and holiday crafts (besides Christmas ornaments) usually see the trash bin after the holiday has passed, using materials that you already have on hand makes so much more sense to me.

Active Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost Less than $5


  • Empty, clean toilet paper roll
  • White construction paper
  • Black marker
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil


  1. Measure out the length of the toilet paper roll and cut a corresponding strip of white paper. I like to place the roll's end along the edge of the paper when it's hed lengthwise and draw a line to mark the top. I do this a couple of times along the length of the paper. Then I use the ruler to connect the lines and cut out the paper.
  2. Glue the white construction paper strip to the tube.
  3. Use a black marker to draw on a scary or friendly ghost face.


Place a battery-operated tealight candle inside to make your ghost glow!
