How to Make Toilet Paper Pumpkins
Now I’ll show you how to create these fun toilet paper pumpkins that take about 5 minutes or less to make! You’ll spend more time gathering the supplies than you will creating it.
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.
Step 5: Add your stick to the center. You can glue an acorn to the top, or tie your natural elements on using your ribbon.
Add ribbons or other embellishments if you wish.
Step 7: Enjoy! But don’t tell your prim and proper friend that you have toilet paper on your dining room table! It will be our little secret.
Absolutely! Mixing and matching fabrics can add a fun and eclectic vibe to your toilet paper pumpkins.
You can also use twigs, cinnamon sticks, or even craft foam shaped like stems.
Adjust the amount of tissue paper and the size of the fabric you use to create pumpkins of different sizes.

- For a rustic look, fray the fabric edges or distress them with sandpaper.
