Halloween means one thing to us…crafts.

Halloween comes around once a year, and once a year, kids, parents, students and teachers release their creativity onto unsuspecting toilet paper rolls.

Toilet paper tubes (aka toilet paper rolls) are the most common go-to component for Halloween crafts for this one reason: they’re free!

Everybody has toilet paper rolls, so all you need to make some fun, creative Halloween crafts is maybe some colored paper, paint, brushes, and scissors.

Watch this fun video for some quick, simple, and affordable toilet paper roll craft ideas.
