Craft with toilet paper rolls seems to be one of the most popular craft activity searches online.
And a quick look at what is already online throws up a ton of cute characters, from dogs to cats to spiders, all made with toilet roll tubes.

When people craft with toilet paper rolls, they quite often seem to create the craft item around the shape of the tube as it is.

I did try various ways of getting to the final creation but the method you will see in the YouTube video was the method that worked the best, even though it may seem like there would be better ways.
For me, this was the easiest method.
And here is what I made…
