Put empty toi­let and kitchen rolls to good use

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HOMES - By EllEn WhytE

In­STEAd of throw­ing away that card­board cen­tre from your toi­let or kitchen roll, save them up and put them to use.

Plant starter

Snip toi­let rolls into two pieces and kitchen rolls into three pieces.

Set on the sides in a plas­tic tray (a kitty lit­ter tray is cheap and easy to source). Fill with soil, sprin­kle in seed, cover with soil and sprin­kle with wa­ter. When your seeds sprout, plant the whole tube into your gar­den or a big­ger pot – the card­board will de­com­pose nat­u­rally.

Scarf holder

Col­lect kitchen rolls and scraps of pretty fab­ric. When you have six or so, cut fab­ric so it will cover the roll and reach an inch or more in­side too.

Spread a lit­tle su­per­glue on the in­side (watch your fin­gers!) and place the fab­ric so that it cov­ers the out­side card­board as well as the vis­i­ble in­te­rior.

Leave to dry overnight. now bunch tubes to­gether and tie with strong rib­bon, at least one inch thick.

If nec­es­sary, se­cure with a dot of su­per­glue. Hang it from the back of your bed­room door and stuff with scarves.
