Toilet Paper Roll Craft | 5 Minute Pumpkin

Toilet Paper Roll Craft | 5 Minute Fall Pumpkin

We’ve all seen them, countless ways to reuse and make crafts with empty toilet paper rolls.

But have you ever seen a craft made from a full roll of toilet paper?

In March of 2020 it was nearly impossible to find toilet paper in any local or online stores.

Now that supplies have been replenished, we’ll not only show you how to create this darling fall pumpkin from a full toilet paper roll, but we’ll show you how to conceal your toilet paper and secretly build up your stash. 😆

How To Create Toilet Paper Roll Craft | Fall Pumpkin

First, begin with a roll of toilet paper, and a piece of fabric cut into a square. The fabric should be long enough to cover all sides of the toilet paper roll.

(Using scraps of fabric is perfect for this fall craft! This navy and white ticking fabric is leftover from Ellie’s upcycled daybed.)

Next, add a small piece of thin batting around the entire roll of toilet paper. This will give the pumpkin a bit more of a rounded look.

Take one side of the fabric and wrap it over one side of the toilet paper roll, and tuck remaining fabric in the middle of the roll.

Repeat this on the opposite side of the toilet paper roll, and again on the other two remaining sides.

As you go around the toilet paper roll, you’ll be flattening the fabric creating small pleats.

Embellish Fall Pumpkin Craft

To embellish this darling fall pumpkin decor, add a broken tree branch or twig into the center of the toilet paper roll.

Additionally you may add a leaf cut from scraps of fabric and a curly piece of jute.

It’s simple, quick and darling, not to mention you likely have all the supplies around your home anyway!

Creating these darling fall pumpkins from a toilet paper roll is so fast and easy you may find yourself wanting to make several.

A variation to this toilet paper craft is to add a small amount of batting around the entire roll before wrapping the fabric around.

This will give the appearance of an even more rounded pumpkin.

Add any additional embellishments to finish it off.

*If you don’t have any batting on hand, try unwrapping a little bit of the toilet paper and loosely wrapping it back around the roll. This too can create softer edges around the pumpkin.

So what do you think?

This is really an easy fall craft. I bet once you make one, you’ll want to make more.
