Fun and Easy No-Sew Craft Project for the Whole Family to Enjoy
This fun DIY is so easy and quick to make that you can have an entire pumpkin patch made with little effort.
Start by Gathering the Supplies
For Each Toilet Paper Pumpkin, you will need:
One Toilet Paper Roll. I used the “mega” rolls as they are nice and wide and will help the end result look round and fat like a pumpkin.
Fabric. If you are using a toilet paper roll smaller than the mega roll, then an 18 inch square would be enough. However, for the “mega” roll, I have found that an 18 X 22 inch piece of fabric works so much better. This size is also referred to as a fat quarter. If you are not able to find this locally, here are some great options.
Type of Fabric. You can use any type of fabric. Today, I used a thin cotton. However, a flannel can be used as well, but might need a bit more work helping all the fabric fit in the center hole.
Stick. 3 or 4 inch stick or cinnamon stick. This will be used for the stem. My daughter and I were going to look around the yard for them, but we found old cinnamon sticks in the cupboard, so we used those instead. They still smelled nice too.
Green Ribbon. this is used for tying around the stick as leaves. My ribbon as cut into 9 inch lengths.
Pencil. This is used in case you are using a thick fabric and it does not want to tuck down in the center hole nicely. Using the pencil to help the fabric tuck neatly into the middle hold works nicely.
Step-by-Step Written Instructions
How to Make No-Sew Fabric Toilet Paper Pumpkins
Unroll toilet paper 10-12 times. Loosely roll back up. This helps the toilet paper (TP) take on a round appearance.
Trim fabric if necessary to remove any unsightly salvage edge. Lay fabric out on a flat surface with the wrong side out. Place the roll of TP in the center of the fabric.
Take one corner of the fabric and begin by tucking it inside the center hold of the TP holder.
Continue working around the TP roll bringing up sections of the fabric and tucking it into the center hole. Remember, if you are using a thicker fabric, use the pencil to help poke it down into the hole.
It is time to make the stem. If you have not done so already, cut approximately a 9 inch piece of ribbon. Tie it around the stick.
Insert the stick in the center of the TP hole. Do not worry if it is not snug inside the hole. I have found that they stay in place nicely.
