Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

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?

  1. Great Post !! I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and refer to my friends.

  2. I have been making these for years using a layer of batting to plump up the tp. Using a scarf is such a great idea; the pumpkin would be dismantled just about the time I need my scarf back! I roll up a piece of paper bag (cut with funky scissors) to make a stem and add a black paper Jack-o-lantern face that I tape on (and remove after Halloween). A stem of silk grape vine makes a realistic leaf with tendril. Yhis year I am upcycling $1 clothes from Goodwill into colorful pumpkins!

  3. I love this I just bought a velvet pumpkin from my grocery store that looks like this. Now I know how to make my own! Thanks for sharing so cute.
