It’s time to celebrate this glorious fall season and Thanksgiving, with … toilet paper pumpkins that look like expensive fabric pumpkins!
Variation 1: how to make small sized toilet paper pumpkin decorations
Yes, you can make toilet paper pumpkin decorations in just minutes!
wrap a toilet paper roll with a piece of fabric folded to about the same size as the toilet paper roll. You can use dish towel, scarf, t-shirts, etc. This step is to give our “pumpkin” a more rounded shape.
take another piece of fabric, wrap it vertically along the outside of the roll. you can either go through the hollow center of the roll, or just tuck it in a little bit on the ends and go back and forth.
Step 3: add stem to your toilet paper pumpkin decorations
wrap one end of a twig with paper to protect our fabric, and tuck the twig inside one of the openings. Isn’t this toilet paper pumpkin gorgeous with a cute stem?
Now, let’s look at some fun variations!
Variation 2: how to make flat shaped Cinderella pumpkin decorations.
Just keep rolling more fabric around the toilet paper till the form looks flat, then wrap extra long fabrics around it. One piece of fabric might not be enough, just find some similar color ones, or make multi-color DIY toilet paper pumpkins!
Variation 3: how to make extra large and tall toilet paper pumpkin decorations.
To make the extra large and tall pumpkin, we will be using 2 toilet paper rolls.
Wrap 2 rolls tightly together with a wide towel, then create a tapered shape with more folded towels. Once you are happy with the shape, wrap the outer layer with a pretty fabric.
I used scarves on all these pumpkins, but shirts, skirts, kitchen linens will all work beautifully.
Now it’s your turn! Explore all the shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns, the possibilities are endless when it comes to toilet paper pumpkins! Don’t you think they would make great Thanksgiving & fall decorations?
