Gone are the days of stacking your bath tissue on the back of your toilet. Say hello to your new toilet paper goals (seriously, who knew you could have toilet paper goals?) Your TP storage doesn’t have to be boring—with some creativity and a dash of DIY, you can organize your toilet paper and treat it like decor.

A decorated glass vase

All you need to make the glass toilet paper display above is a tall, round glass vase wide enough to fit rolls of toilet paper, and some decorative tape. This tutorial from Design Improvised used copper foil electrical tape, but you can easily use Washi tape to make your own unique designs.

A colorful drawer-pull holder

The toilet paper holders above come from DesignLoveFest, and look a lot more elegant and complicated than they actually are. Each attaches to the wall with a drawer pull, and the rest of the holder is made of a tube and some leather cord, twine, or ribbon. The best part? You can customize this any way you want, depending on the drawer pull, cord, accents and colors you choose.
