DIY Toilet Paper Pumpkin

5 Materials
5 Minutes

Need an inexpensive, easy centerpiece for thanksgiving? Look no further. These simple DIY pumpkins are sure to please even the luckiest of decorators.


Unravel your toilet paper about 8 feet or so. Any length will work. Do more for a larger pumpkin and less for a smaller one.

Roll the toilet paper back up, not neatly. Then tuck the end in so it is secure.

Lay out your napkin and place your toilet paper in the center.

Tuck the napkin material neatly and tightly into the center of the toilet paper roll.

Stick a cinnamon stick through the center of the pumpkin. This is the stem.

Optional: Tie a ribbon around the cinnamon stick.

Tuck some greenery into the center of the pumpkin.

That’s it. You could use any material you have, but I find that cloth napkins are the perfect size, and I’m a sucker for white. Have fun with this project. It’s so easy even your kids can make them!

So cute, and you’d never guess there’s toilet paper underneath:)
