Decorative toilet paper holders are usually not very decorative. Most are simple circular containers that do nothing to add to the style or the theme of the bathroom. Instead of buying a basic holder for bathroom tissue, do something much more creative. Use one of the following creative ways to store extra rolls, and impress bathroom guests with a unique bathroom tissue holder that could never be found in stores.
Create a Unique Holder in a Planter
When looking for a creative way to make a holder for bathroom paper, look no further than your yard. Find a tree branch that resembles a small tree with plenty of sturdy branches, and create a unique tissue paper tree. You will also need a heavy ceramic or clay planter, florist foam to fit the pot and polished pebbles or moss to complete the holder.
The TP tree can be decorated further, if desired. Consider using spray paint to create a contemporary tree that coordinates with the colors in the bathroom. Faux leaves and artificial flower heads can also be glued into place for a pretty spring or summer tree.
If embellishments are desired on this unique tissue paper holder, begin by decorating the tree with spray paint, and glue on faux leaves using a hot glue gun. Stuff the florist foam into the planter, and plant the tissue paper tree into the foam. Cover the foam with dried moss or polished pebbles. Use the branches to hold extra rolls. Most of the time when tissue paper is in a tree it involves teenagers, but this is a creative way to keep tissue paper within easy reach where it is needed the most.
Make this Creative Boat Oar Roll Holder
A bathroom decorated in a boating or fishing theme can be decorated further with a unique tissue paper holder. Lean an old boat oar in a corner nearest the toilet. Place rolls of tissue paper over the handle of the oar. This really cool holder will keep extra rolls within easy reach while adding to the theme of the bathroom. In this bathroom no one will be up a creek without a paddle – or without tissue paper either.
Fill an Oversized Basket with Tissue Paper
Basketry goes well in bathrooms of many different themes. When looking for a creative tissue paper holder, consider an oversized basket. Simply fill the basket with a half dozen rolls, and keep the holder within arms reach of the toilet. This will eliminate the need to stomp on the floor or bang on the wall when the wall-mounted roller is empty.
