Here’s what you’ll need to make this Toilet Paper Roll Fish…

toilet paper tube fish materials

  • 1 Toilet Paper Roll
  • 1 sheet of card-stock – I used orange but any color will do
  • 1 sheet of tissue paper – either matching or contrasting color to your card-stock (this will be used for the fins)
  • Elastic cording or ribbon to hang the fish from
  • 1 large googly eye (about 1 inch wide)
  • scotch tape and glue – I like Fabri-Tac Glue because it sticks right away with no dry time
  • Marker, colored pencil, or crayon for gills

  • Tape the seem with clear scotch tape
  • Cut triangle fins from the tissue paper for the bottom and top of the fish
  • *I doubled them up so there were tow fins on top and on bottom
  • For the tail fin, cut a longer piece of tissue paper and if you want make scallop cuts along the edge
