I decided I needed a blog space to post my craft projects, knitting, zentangles, things I make for my niece Miss V, etc. The name of the blog - "a pinch, a potch, and a kiss" - is something my grandfather used to lovingly say to us grandkids and it brings back fond memories of childhood. He had a particular cadence to the phrase that I can still hear in my head and it always makes me smile.

Toilet Paper Roll Wreath

I made this as a sample of what we were going to be doing for our Family Holiday Craft Day at the library.  I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. I even like that it isn't painted (I thought it would look cheap or stupid).  My inspiration for the wreath was this wreath at Creative Jewish Mom, but I was worried I wouldn't have enough TP rolls to make them that big. So I played around with folding the TP roll pieces and came up with this. It's only about 8" in diameter, but I kind of like that it's small.

Here are the instructions in pdf format.
