Give your extra toilet tissue a festive look this fall with some fabric and a few craft supplies.

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes



  1. Set tissue roll in the center of a 22x18 inch piece of fabric or tissue paper.
  2. Gather the fabric around it, and tuck the edges into the top hole.
  3. For a stem, roll a strip of brown paper bag or brown construction paper into a small tube shape, twist it, and push it down into the top hole.
  4. For a vine, twist a green chenille stem around a pencil to form a "spring." Glue one end of a pipe cleaner to a felt leaf or artificial leaf.

    Insert the stem into the hole.

Take a roll of toilet paper, set it in the center of a 20 inch circle of orange fabric or tissue paper. Bring the fabric or tissue paper up around the sides of the toilet paper roll and tuck ends into the roll hole on top. Cut a stem out of brown felt or tissue paper, 3 inches wide by 4 inches long. Roll the stem into a 4 inch long tube, glue if desired, and stick stem into the hole on top of the pumpkin.
