Yep, I have pumpkins sitting on my mantle that are made of toilet paper. It's a great little conversational starter. Seriously though, this craft took about 5 minutes to put together and cost about $5. I wanted to do something fun for Fall that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg, and these toilet paper pumpkins were the perfect answer. You will spend more time gather materials than you will making these, and I think they turn out pretty cute! Here's what you need to make your own toilet paper pumpkins:
Toilet paper rolls
Fat quarter of fabric
Sticks for stems
1. Lay out your fabric, and set a roll of toilet paper in the middle. Wrap 1-2 sheets of tissue paper around the sides of your toilet paper roll.
2. Tuck on corner of fabric into the center of the toilet paper roll. Continue tucking in the fabric, folding in any fabric under that won't quite meet the center of the toilet paper.
3. Fluff your pumpkin sides and work with the fabric until you have a nice round pumpkin shape.
4, Add your stick to the center, and voila! You have a toilet paper pumpkin.
