Toilet Paper Pumpkin Craft

I love crafts and am always looking on other blogs for something new to make.  With Autumn being my favourite time of year, I've learned that I have to make most of my decorations to celebrate this beautiful season.  

I found this adorable toilet paper pumpkin at

What you’ll need:

  • 22″ x 22″ square of fall patterned cotton fabric
  • 1 Double Roll of Toilet Paper
  • 1 yard thin rope or paper cord
  • Batting 14″ by 14″ square {or paper towels or a plastic grocery bag can be substituted}
  • 1 brown paper grocery bag
  • Tape {hot glue can also be used}
  • 2 silk fall leaves

Lay out the fabric and batting. Place toilet paper roll in the middle.

*If you don’t have batting, you can substitute semi-crumpled up paper towels, or even plastic grocery bags to add texture.

Begin pulling up the fabric and tucking it down into the center of the toilet paper roll.

Once it has all been wrapped up, it will look like this…

Now, you’ll want to take a brown paper bag and cut out a section that is 12″ long by 4.5″ wide.

Roll it up and then tape it.

Take the rope or paper cord and twist around the “stem”. You can tape the ends of the cord, or hot glue it on. It will look like this…

Insert the ‘stem’ down into the middle of the toilet paper roll.
Add the two silk fall leaves, and you’re done!! So simple, and so adorable… for years to come!
