HTTC - No Sew Pumpkin

Thanks so much for having me here!!!  I'm so excited to guest post today!

Here's a fun little tutorial for a super quick and simple fall decoration!
Materials Needed:
A large scrap of least 12 inches
An empty toilet paper tube
A little batting
Some jute
Hot glue gun and glue
A roll of toilet paper...yup, you read that right!

First off, Place a little batting around the toilet paper.  

Then center your roll of toilet paper on the square of fabric....and gather the fabric around the toilet paper...and tuck the ends of the fabric into the hole at the top of the roll.

Cut the empty roll in half, and squish it flat.  Then roll it up.

With a little dab of hot glue, attach the end of the jute to the empty roll.  

Continue winding jute around the empty roll until it is completely covered.  Look!  A stem!

Add a little hot glue to the end of the stem....and stick into the hole in the top of the pumpkin!
Lastly, squash the roll a little to round out the corners, and make it look more pumpkin shaped!
And there you go!!

After the fall holidays you can save on storage space by gently unwrapping the roll of toilet paper, and storing the folded up fabric in your holiday bin for next year!  As for the toilet paper, just put it in your kids' bathroom...they won't mind that it's kinda squashed...
Happy Halloween!!
