Toilet Paper Pumpkins - SO FUN!

We made a really cute fall craft today!  They are called toilet paper pumpkins and here's what you need:
  • a roll of toilet paper
  • orange fabric - mine cost 2.00 for a half of a yard at Hobby Lobby
  • green pipe cleaners - 77 cents at Hobby Lobby
  • green felt - 4 sheets for $1.00 - I just got one (cheap)
  • brown paper sack - used a lunch sack and cut it:)
Then all you do is:

Get your toilet paper

put it in the center of your fabric

pull the fabric tight around the toilet paper and stuff extra fabric into the center

roll up a piece of paper sack and stuff the bottom into the center for a stem

draw your leaves onto your felt and cut out - my kiddos each chose a different shaped leaf:)  Be sure to draw a stem to attach the pipe cleaner to, wrap pipe cleaner around stem of leaf, and then around stem of your pumpkin (paper sack)

Twist remaining pipe cleaner around a pen/pencil to look like vines:)

After you twist just pull gently on the end of the pipe cleaner

taaaah dahhhhh!!!!

How cute are these?!!!!!!
