Toilet Paper Pumpkins

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!

Materials: 

Toilet Paper Rolls
Fat Quarter of Fabric
Sticks for stems
Ribbons
Tissue Paper
Scissors
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.
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.
Don't forget! Tomorrow's the night that we'll be drawing one lucky follower who will win a CD/DVD car visor wallet and a $25 gift certificate for Amazon.com. If you are a follower via Google Friend Connect or Feedburner (see my side bar), your name has been entered! Be sure to check back for the lucky winner.
