Fabric Pumpkins

contest winner icon

Here is a fun craft to make this fall. I made a ton of them last year, they are cheap and easy.



  • 22 inch square of fabric
  • 1 roll of toilet paper
  • polyfill
  • 2 (12 inch) pieces green floral wire 24 inch gauge
  • small piece of paper bag


  1. Place your TP roll in the middle of your fabric, right side down.
  2. Put polyfill around the TP roll to desired "plumpness". Be sure and tuck it under the TP roll so the bottom looks normal.
  3. Gather fabric up around the TP roll and polyfill and tuck it inside the hole of the TP. Push it in as far as it will go.
  4. Wrap separate pieces of floral wire, one at a time around a pencil so they curl like a vine. Tuck on end of each into the TP hole.
  5. Crumple up a small piece of paper bag, then roll it so it resembles a stem. Push into the TP hole.
