Toilet Paper Pumpkins – Smart School House

Happy Fall! Well, almost:) I can admit that I’ve already pulled out our fall decor and have been busy planning new crafts and tablescapes for the season! Today I’m sharing how to make adorable Toilet Paper Pumpkins for your holiday decorating. They are SO SIMPLE to assemble that you’ll be giddy when you do them! What I love most is that they will last all the way through Thanksgiving. No gluing, no sewing, no hard crafting is involved with the making of my toilet paper pumpkins.

Toilet Paper Pumpkins

One quick trip to a craft store (or even Walmart) is all it takes to make cute and decorative pumpkins.

Pretty much any size toilet paper roll will work too. I know that they come in so many different sizes (as I joked about here on my Facebook page). For reference, I used a large “jumbo” size roll for this project.

If you have ever worked with fabric, then you know what “fat quarters” are. They are a standard size cut of fabric (18″ x 21″) that you can buy for SUPER inexpensive prices. Sometimes buying fabric can be pricey, but fat quarters are perfect for little projects like these:) I got these exact fat quarters in the fabric section at Walmart for $1.49.

  2. Wrap the edges of the fabric up and into the toilet paper roll (as seen in the video instructions above)
