Happy Fall! Well, almost:) I can admit that I’ve already pulled out our fall decor and have been busy planning new crafts and tablescapes for the season! Today I’m sharing how to make adorable Toilet Paper Pumpkins for your holiday decorating. They are SO SIMPLE to assemble that you’ll be giddy when you do them! What I love most is that they will last all the way through Thanksgiving. No gluing, no sewing, no hard crafting is involved with the making of my toilet paper pumpkins.

Toilet Paper Pumpkins

One quick trip to a craft store (or even Walmart) is all it takes to make cute and decorative pumpkins. Pretty much any size toilet paper roll will work too. I know that they come in so many different sizes (as I joked about here on my Facebook page). For reference, I used a large “jumbo” size roll for this project.

If you have ever worked with fabric, then you know what “fat quarters” are. They are a standard size cut of fabric (18″ x 21″) and are extremely affordable. Sometimes buying fabric can be pricey, but fat quarters are perfect for little projects like these:) I got these exact fat quarters in the fabric section at Walmart for $1.49.

Don’t they turn out so cute?! I made white and yellow ones today. I think it would be extremely cute to try different patterns too. The possibilities are endless… Here’s how I did the same craft to make apples. What I love most about Toilet paper apples and toilet paper pumpkins is that you can save the supplies and reuse them year after year. How’s that for thrifty?

Just a couple dollars will last for years and create cute decorations for any place around the house, classroom, or office! Nothing says Fall more than apples! It’s time to go apple picking and cook apple inspired recipes. Here are our most favorite apple recipes for the fall:

A fat quarter sized piece of cloth wraps perfectly around ANY size toilet paper roll! I think it would be cute to have different sized apples bunched up together using different sized rolls of toilet paper.

Cinnamon sticks in a toilet paper apple

I used cinnamon sticks as the apple stem. They smell SO good and are the perfect fragrance to go with apple decor:) Plus, you can save them by placing them in a sealed plastic baggie. Mine have lasted for years now! But, real sticks or even popsicle sticks could work for this part too. Be creative! No two apples are alike!

You Will Need
