  • Thanks for editing it. Questions on this site can only ask ONE question. If you ask TWO questions, like how to use an empty tissue role AND how to use an empty spool that had thread on it, your question will get closed as "too broad". :-) – BrettFromLA Dec 8 '18 at 16:45

    @ShadowWizard good hint, that must have slipped through somehow. – Stephie Dec 9 '18 at 16:06

Apart from making craft with them (as Anum suggested), if you know someone who has a hamster or mice you can give it to them for the pets to play with. The pets will appreciate it.

  • tissue roll make for very good cable holders. A little bit of glue and spray paint and you can build a cable holder that suits your needs. – BossRoss Dec 13 '18 at 14:02

I have used them for Christmas decorations. I created the idea about when I was 8yrs old. My mother was having a hard time right before Christmas and we had no decorations for the tree. I used the rolls to make them. I first gathered up the rolls, some tacky glue, twine, material. I cut the rolls into three. Measured the material just 1/8 inch wider than the portioned roll. placed the end of the roll portion on to the material and traced a circle around it, repeated it enough for all portion ends, cut them out, glue the material to the portions, let dry for a moment, trim cut the excess off, measure twine to cover rough edges, use thread to create away to hang.
