Make pumpkins - out of toilet paper rolls, fabric, and plastic bags! Click here! for the whole post on Dagmar's Home! Decorating our cottage for fall -- my favorite season here in Westchester, NY -- is always so much fun. While I like to decorate, I don't like to spend a lot of money on it, and I came up with a super-easy way to make instant pumpkins! You most likely already have all the supplies for this

These are the easiest DIY pumpkins ever. People don't believe they are made out of toilet paper rolls. And aren't they cute?

Here are the supplies: toilet paper roll, plastic bag, fabric, and some yarn or ribbon.

Wrap some plastic bags around the toilet paper roll, then wrap it with the T-shirt or fabric. I simply stuffed the ends inside the middle of the toilet paper roll.

I decorated one with a knot, and wrapped some ribbon around the other one.

I added sticks from our yard to make stems for the pumpkins.

      And it saves the TP from getting wet. TP isn't cheap so after Holloween use it.

    i bought the Dollar Tree's "candy corn scarf" as i had no fabric and it wrapped perfectly around the T.P. The grocery bags soften the edges to make it seem more rounded. Any stick from the yard and a leaf or two! So cute & thanks!
