I saw this project a few weeks ago, and for the life of me I can't remember what blog I saw this on (so if this was your idea, let me know and I'll happily give credit where credit is due.)
Okay, now back to the TP pumpkins. I've really fallen behind on my Fall decor. The rain has definitely played a factor in this, so this weekend I'm hoping to spruce up my house inside and out.
I began my Fall decorating inside by making these: Toilet paper pumpkins!
Awhile back I purchased some cheap fabric remnants from Garden Ridge. They have a wall-o-fabric and it is so cheap! I think I got 4 yards for $4.99!
Once I got home, I cut out a square of fabric- Make sure you don't cut your fabric swatch too big because all of that fabric must be squeezed into the teeny-weeny center roll.
Then I began stuffing said fabric into the center.
(Note: I did this once and I didn't care for the shape, so I redid it but added tissue paper to give it a base and add a little extra "puff."
At this point, it should look like this:
Yes, I know... It still looks like a toilet paper roll wrapped in fabric. Don't get your TP in a bunch! :)
At this point, mash... squish... and squash until it takes the shape of a pumpkin.
I actually stood on mine:
Then, I grabbed a couple of twigs from the back yard to use as stems.
And look on the bright side. If you ever forget to grab toilet paper at the store, you'll always have a few extras on hand.
