toilet paper halloween pumpkin buddies

Pin It
i originally posted this last year when the blog was dramatically smaller.  we are getting ready to do this craft next week with our new art group.  so i thought i would share it with you again :)

when Pip was in elementary school, i was a room mother.  for holiday parties, i always got to have fun planning the craft.  this is what we made for her haLLowEEn cRaFT in 5th grade.  aren't they cute?  they're made out of toilet paper!!!


and they're super easy to make.  to make them, we used handkerchiefs with 2 inches cut off of 2 of the sides.  sit the tp in the middle of the square and shove the fabric into the roll hole.

when Bear was done with the pumpkin, he rolled up a piece of brown cardstock and stuck it in the hole as the stem. 

not sure why i didn't take any shots of him making the frankenstein....  but it was fun to watch him put the witch together... especially dealing with all the pieces of rick-rack for her hair.


here are the end results
(pardon the wet glue on the witch's hat)


which one is your favorite halloween tp buddy?

How cute! Love the pumpkin, a nice kiddie friendly craft, although mine would still try to tp the entire house first!

These are adorable! Bear did such a nice job. I'm partial to the witch. The rick rack hair just drew me in. :D
