Allow me to demonstrate how to craft this pumpkin
Things you will need to make this Pumpkin craft
You only need five items:
- Empty toilet paper rolls
- Orange washable paint
- Glue gun
- Twine/ thread
Directions to make this Toilet Paper Roll Pumpkin Craft
Begin by painting the toilet paper rolls orange. If you prefer, you can skip the painting step and create charming brown pumpkins instead.
Once the paint has dried, flatten the toilet paper rolls and start cutting them into uniform 1cm-wide rings, creating rings from the rolls. You’ll need two rolls to make one dense pumpkin.
By cutting two rolls you will get 15 to 20 of these pieces.
Roll the flat rings into circles by gently shaping them between your hands.
Once all the rings are rounded, string them onto a thread.
Gather them tightly to form a ring of the Pieces, as shown in the image below. After tying, trim any excess thread.
Arrange the rings evenly to create a beautiful pumpkin shape.
To complete the pumpkin, follow these two more steps:
Cut a circular piece from an orange sheet and attach it to the bottom using a glue gun.
Apply glue to one end of the twig and insert it into the centre of the pumpkin you’ve crafted.
Finally, tie a green thread around it to resemble the vines of a pumpkin.
And here is your pumpkin!
