Seed Starter using toilet paper roll

One thing we never seem to be short on is empty toliet paper rolls!  For years I have gone out and purchased the small pet pots to start my seeds in at spring time.  However now I don’t have to waste my money on those small pots any longer.  I have my own unending source of pet pots!  Check out this fast and useful way to use all your old toliet paper rolls!


  • Toilet paper or paper towel roll

  • Razor

  • Scissors

  • Duct tape

How to make a seed starter pot using a toilet paper roll:

  • Cut the toilet paper roll in half using your razor and scissors.

  • Take one of the halves and cut four slits about 3/4″-1″ or so up the roll.

  • Fold the toilet paper roll into each other to form the bottom of the seed starter pot.

  • Use tape to secure the bottom.

  • To fill put your soil inside, followed by your seed and cover with more soil.
