DIY: Toilet Paper Pumpkins
Looking for an inexpensive way to add autumn flare to your home décor? Cute, simple toilet paper pumpkins can be made with items you probably have lying around the house. You’ll need a roll of toilet paper, a fat quarter of fabric (about 22 by 18 inches), a sheet of newspaper, a 4- to 5-inch-long stick and a 12-inch-long ribbon. Here’s how to make them:
- On a hard surface, lay out the fabric wrong side up, and then lay the newspaper on top. Place your toilet paper in the middle.
- Press down on the top of the roll of toilet paper to squish it a little. Bring all corners of the newspaper and tuck them into the center of the roll.
- Do the same thing with the fabric, bringing the shorter sides up first, then the corners so all ends get tucked in.
- Shove the stick right down the middle of the pumpkin, and tie a bow around it with the ribbon. The stick should fit snugly, but you can also use hot glue to make it stay.
