Easy DIY Pumpkin Craft
Here are the products you need:
Toilet Paper (any brand)
Brown material cut into a 10 x 12 inch square
Fat Quarter (or any Fall material cut to 18 x 21 inches)
Green Felt for leaves
Pipe Cleaner for vines
Set your Toilet Paper to the side and then invert your material as seen here so it makes for easier pumpkin making. We started out by making the stem, so it was on top.
Use the brown material cut into a 10 x 12 inch square to make the stem as you see in the pictures above and video.
Fat Quarter (or any Fall material cut to 18 x 21 inches) Now take your material and “tuck” it into the center roll of the toilet paper. Making a roundish shaped pumpkin with creases of course because most pumpkins have lines.
Here is where your pencil and pipe cleaner comes into play so you can make your pumpkins have some vines. Just wrap the pipe cleaner around the pencil to make the sqiggles as we like to call them. Then set them over to side while you make your leaf. My mom was able to free hand hers to cut it out, but I didn’t get that gene from her, so that is where I would pull out my Silhouette Machine and let it do the work.
All in all we had a great time making these pumpkins and our houses are all ready for Fall to come now. Be sure you share a picture of your finished project with me because I want to see how creative you were making yours! Happy Fall Ya’ll!!
