Tutorial Tuesday: Super Easy and Cute Pumpkin


This week is the beginning of fall! I'm so excited for fall. I love the weather (especially now that I don't live in Wyoming and it doesn't snow) and the changing of the leaves. It's just a fun season. So I actually like to decorate for it.

This is a super cute and easy pumpkin to make. It's so easy that my 5 and 3 year old boys actually made these, with little help.



This is what you'll need, toilet paper, fabric, stick and rafia.

This is how you make it
1) Take your fabric and make a 2 x 2 foot square and place your toilet paper in the middle. The bigger the roll, the fatter the pumpkin

2) Stuff the fabric into the hole of the roll

3) Continue stuffing the fabric all the way around the roll


4) Take a stick and tie some rafia onto the stick and put it into the hole


It's that simple and so cute!!

  4. I love that this is a project you can take apart when the season is over (and use) and then remake it the next season. Plus, now that I've moved to the Wyoming weather, I'm bracing myself for the windiest winter ever.
