No, I'm not British...I just thought Bog Roll sounded more enchanted then toilet paper roll.  I made this pencil holder for fancybutch in the recent Enchanted Forest Swap.  All it requires to make it is the TP roll, hot glue, paint, glaze, some extra bits of stiff paper, and a face mold...



I started by hot gluing the TP roll to the stiff paper.  You want a piece quit a bit bigger than the TP roll so you have room to make roots.  Then just keep building up the hot glue.  I used bits of the paper to fill in the roots and make them join to the stump up higher.  I also did some of the bark at this time.  Once my glue gun got super hot, it was too runny to be much good for bark, so I got out my face mold (sold to use with FIMO) and used the super hot glue to make the face.  Once I filled the mold, I stuck it into the frig to help it to completely cool the mold faster.  I let it cool for several hours.  It has to be totally hard, or it would distort if you try to remove it.  Once cool, heat up your gun again and stick it where you want.  I also did more bark work then too.  After it is all hard, cut off the paper bottom that didn't become the root system.  After that, just start painting.  I think I used 4 different coats of paint to get the depth I was looking for.  Then I glazed it and I chose to glue felt to the bottom, just so it looked more finished..


The little Ent looked a bit lonely, so when I found this little crow bead, I decided it wanted to live with the Ent Grin

Thanks for looking Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

You have definitely taken the humble TP roll to a higher purpose...I love this!

I just found a cool Japanese crafting site that calls them POOPer Roll crafts...how funny is that? Grin

Love how you are teaching me more about the hot glue gun...very creative, as usual!
