DIY Wood Letter Block Toilet Roll Holder

DIY Wooden Letter Block Toilet Paper Roll Holder | DazzleWhileFrazzled.comDon’t you love it when you not only come up with a random home decor idea but can locate the building supplies in the kids playroom?

And this was how I wound up negotiating with my 4-year old roommate about using his wooden letter blocks to create a quirky toilet roll holder for the kids bathroom.

This little guy drives a hard bargain. Once we decided we could still be “best friends”, even with my using his toys for a project, it was time to start “blocking it up”…

DIY Wooden Letter Block Toilet Roll Holder

Re-purposing everyday items for a fun and quirky DIY project is what I love best. Learn how I used the kids wooden letter blocks to create a unique and practical toilet roll holder for the kids bathroom.

wooden letter blocks
– small wooden circle base (I used a wooden clock face)
– four wooden craft balls
– threaded metal rod
– nylon lock nut
– washer
– threaded nut
– three prong tee nut
– three colored pencils (approx. same length)
– sanding paper or block
liquid nails or wood glue
– paint

how to make a DIY toilet roll holder

Step #1:
Prime and paint your base and wooden craft balls, which will serve as “feet” for your toilet paper roll holder.

While the paint dries, roughen-up your wooden block letters so they look aged. Ditto with the base once dry. Of course, these are option steps. Go with the look that suits your Throne Room best!

Step #2:
Glue the wood ball “feet” onto the base. Once secured, begin arranging and gluing on the wooden blocks. I wasted more time trying to come up with a layout that worked best. I finally just settled on a random, scattered look. Once those blocks are down, begin creating your block tower.

Step #3:
Insert the metal rod through hole in the base. Secure with the nylon locking nut (on the bottom) and place washer down atop of wooden blocks with threaded nut on top of that.

Step #4:
! You can start to stack the block tower. I made ours a little haphazard and wonky.

On the very last block, I drilled a hole the length of the tree nut and pounded it in. This block will serve as the ‘end cap’ for your tower.

Step #5:
Since I took blocks from the 4-year old, it’s only fair I use some colored pencils from the 7-year old!

With colored pencils in hand, I grabbed a drill and slowly made a hole in a block. In all honesty, this was the longest part of the project. I’ll attribute it to not wanting to lose control of the drill and wind up spending my afternoon in an Urgent Care. But many long minutes later, I had a hole wide enough to stick three pencils in. Success! I dumped a whole lot of liquid nails in there and waited for them to be in there tight.
