Have you ever wanted to make something, but didn’t know where to begin? That’s where we come in. Godwin Hardware is here to help with #DIYFridays! Each month, we’ll feature a new DIY project completed using products from our hardware store so you can complete it, too.

Up next is a DIY that adds a rustic touch to a classic bathroom item. Our DIY toilet paper holder requires only three supplies to make and takes less than a half hour to complete!

DIY Toilet Paper Holder Supplies


  • A Wooden Dowel
  • Circle Saw
  • Rope or Thick Twine
  • A knob
  • Ruler
  • Drill with Large Drill Bit
  • Scissors
  • Circular Command Strip

1. First and foremost: pet the cute dog that wants to help you with your DIY project. Thank him for his help.

2. Now, begin by your taking your dowel and cutting it down to be six inches long. Please take care using the power tools and follow proper safety precautions.

3. Sand the sides of the dowel to remove any rough edges.

4. Mark a half-inch in from the ends on each side of the dowel and drill a hole using a large drill bit. Make sure the holes are drilled parallel to each other.

5. Cut two eight-inch pieces of rope. Tie a slipknot on one side of each of them. Slip one through each hole on the dowel.

6. Following the instructions on the circular command Strip, attach one side to the knob. Attach the knob to your desired location by the toilet.

7. Tie a knot on the other side of each rope and pull apart the strands right below the knot to create a hole large enough for the knot to fit through.
