In this autumn season we usually see the pumpkin as the protagonist of the decoration. That is why today I bring you a tutorial where you will learn how to make a pumpkin with something as simple as a roll of toilet paper.

It is very simple, take the toilet paper and unwind part of it , place it around the roll again but not flat as it comes, place the paper in a messy and bulky so this way disguise the shape and not notice that it is a roll of toilet paper when we cover it with the fabric and give the form as a pumpkin.

Cut a piece of 18 "x 18" fabric if the fabric has spandex. If the fabric does not have spandex, then cut the piece larger approximately 20 "x 20".

Place the toilet paper on the piece of cloth and place it in the center. The beautiful side of the fabric should be down, so when we go to cover the roll of paper, the beautiful side is exposed. Start raising the fabric from one of the corners and be placing the excess into the center (hole).

Continue covering the paper roll with the fabric and as you go along, adjust it so that the folds are as you wish.

Close it hiding everything inside the center of the paper roll. As you can see, I don't need glue to hold the fabric. But if you find it difficult or the fabric you are using does not behave in the same way, then apply a little hot glue inside the hole so you can fix in place and do not disassemble.

To make the stem use cinnamon sticks.

To place them I did not use glue, but my advice is that you must place a little. Otherwise simply insert the cinnamon sticks by pressing them into the hole where you hid the excess cloth. Depending on the size of the cinnamon it will depend on how many you will need. If they are thick it is possible that with only three of them you can create the stem.

This is optional, but it also gives a very nice and natural touch. Place a leave and Voilá!

You can also use a piece of trunk to make the stem and it looks very pretty as well. In the next photo I show you how it looks.

Another alternative that you can use to make the pumpkin is to add filling around the roll of toilet paper. When using the filling it is not necessary that you unroll the paper because the filling will already have the function of giving it volume and shape. Watch the video at the end of this article where I show you the the step by step of both ways to make pumpkins and also stems. I made the silver pumpkin with the filling. You can notice the difference.

      Her blog is accessible through the Go button. The video is very good, but the photos on this post are very instructive. I’m doing this for the guest bathroom for Thanksgiving and Christmas. That way, nearly every guest will see it up close.
