Halloween Decoration (Pumpkins) Under $1.00

Easy Halloween Decoration
Pumpkins !!





Tutorial
Materials Needed:
1.  Toilet Paper Roll
2.  Newspaper
3.  Leftover Fabric

Process:
  1. Place a roll of toilet paper on top of a piece of newspaper.
  2. Lift the newspaper and stuff it into the middle tube of the toilet paper.
  3. Place the roll of toilet paper on top of the piece of fabric you have chosen.  (Good side down.)
  4. Lift the fabric and stuff it into the middle tube of the toilet paper.
NOTES:  You may need to cut the newspaper and the fabric a bit.  Use any fabric you'd like - it doesn't have to be Halloween fabric.

What a cute idea! I've been collecting toilet paper rolls for preschool, but I'm going to have to use a few for this. I wonder if a paper towel roll would work too?

Hi Annabelle, what a great idea! I'm thinking of trying to make some pomegranites this way for Succot, and they could also be apples....thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday!

Very cute, and yeah cheap. I love that when you are done with pumpkins or whatever you can just use the roll of Tp, nothing lost. So great. Thanks for sharing, and I would LOVE to have you link this up to my new party. I can use all the support, and appreciate all of it. :)

Cute and clever and perfect for the kids, not to mention saving on that expensive polyfill stuffing! And later you can take them apart to use, if you had to, lol!
