I thought I’d sneak one more fun craft in before Halloween. Don’t fret, this craft takes about 5-10 minutes. You’ll spend more time gathering the supplies than you will creating it.
My sitter came over to make these pumpkins with my boys. I was a little skeptical when she asked for three rolls of toilet paper, but the results were so stinkin’ cute!
Toilet Paper Rolls
Fat Quarter of Fabric
Sticks for stems
optional: acorn, sweet gum tree ball or other natural elements
Step 1: Lay out your fabric, and set your roll of toilet paper in the middle.
Wrap 1-2 sheets of tissue paper around the sides.
Step 2: Tuck one corner into the center of the toilet paper.
Step 3: Continue tucking in the fabric, folding any fabric under that won’t quite meet the center of the toilet paper.
Step 4: Fluff your pumpkin sides and work with the fabric until you have a nice round pumpkin shape.
