I have seen ‘toilet paper pumpkin’ all over Pinterest lately! And of course, I had to make one for myself. In addition to that, I figured I’d add to my already growing trend of having a plethora of pumpkin crafts! All of that said, I would love to show you how to make this for yourself, therefore let’s get into how to make your own dollar tree toilet paper pumpkin!
Watch the video replay below
Of course, here is what you’ll need:
- toilet paper roll
- fabric of some sort (I used jean and ribbon)
- hot glue gun
- embellishments (fall floral, sunflower)
- moss/a stick from outside
Firstly, to start your toilet paper pumpkin, wrap it in your fabric of choice. Once again, I used jean, but this is your craft so you can use whatever you’d like. Afterwards, you can simply tuck your excess fabric onto the toilet paper roll’s openings, you will do this on both ends. Then, draw and cut out a circle from the fabric you used to wrap your toilet paper in and hot glue it to the bottom of your roll. Doing this secures the fabric, you can also hot glue the folds on the top of the roll where you tucked it in.
Secondly, hot glue all of your embellishments to your toilet paper pumpkin! I hot glued some moss to the top, inserted a stick for the stem and also created a raffia bow. Moreover, I then added some leaves and cut out burlap to make burlap leaves.
Thirdly, I added a small bow that I made by combining two types of ribbon and securing them with a sunflower that had a wire I could wrap around the ribbon. As an extra step, I added some rusty orange flowers and cream colored berries. This also added to the fall color aesthetic of the craft.
Finally, your toilet paper pumpkin is complete!
While this DIY can seem time consuming, it is actually fairly quick. As for me, I added quite a bit of embellishments and details but all of these are optional! I hope you loved this and will give it a try on your own time. In the meantime, give us a follow on our other social media accounts, like Facebook, instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube.
