Now that fall is here, all I can concentrate on is how much I love pumpkins! Luckily for me, my kids are total pumpkin lovers too because it means Halloween is coming, and that’s their favourite holiday. That’s why I’ve been trying my best to incorporate all kinds of pumpkins into the crafts we make lately! I’m always trying to think of new things we can make together out of empty toilet paper rolls because they’re so convenient to craft with, which is how I come came up with this funny little fall pumpkin craft that I just couldn’t help outlining for all to see and try.
Check out these full instructions complete with photos for making a toilet roll pumpkin! If you prefer to follow video tutorials rather than written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find one there.
For this project, you’ll need:
- Coloured paper (orange and cream)
- A small green ribbon
- Two googly eyes
- A paint brush
- Green paint
- A toilet roll
- A glue gun
Gather your materials!
Use your brush to paint your toilet roll green. Let it dry entirely. I even painted the inside of the roll as far as I could for more impact!
From each of your colours of paper, cut eight thin strips. I made each one the full length of the page and about half an inch wide.
