Toilet Paper Roll Creatures

Toilet paper roll monsters: bat, pirate, Frankenstein, mummy, mermaid, scarecrow

The opportunities are endless and the results are always cute when crafting a character out of toilet paper rolls! Let your littles choose their character or create one using our Halloween favorites.


  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Construction paper
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Washable paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Clear glue


1. Decide your characters. 

2. Using paint or construction paper, cover the rolls accordingly, allowing for the correct proportions for a head only or head and upper body. 

Note, if painting, allow enough time for your roll to dry fully before decorating.

3. Glue googly eyes on and hold in place until secure.

4. Using your materials, like construction paper and pipe cleaners, create your accessories for each character. You may also wish to paint on white paper for a given accessory.

Note, for the Toilet Paper Mummy, cut a paper towel in strips and glue each strip in a different pattern to cover the roll, leaving gaps in between.
