Toilet Paper Pumpkins

Yes. You read that right. I am going to show you how to make no-sew, cute as the dickens, fun project for the kids, toilet paper pumpkins.
For each pumpkin you need:
1 roll of toilet paper
1- 18x22 inch piece of orange fabric
1- 2x10 inch strip of green fabric
a brown paper bag
and a few strands of raffia.
Step 1- Place TP in center of orange fabric and pull all corners up and tuck into center hole.

Step 3- Place twisted bag in center of green fabric strip and raffia strands.Place in center.

Aren't they cute? Fun project for preschoolers (of which I have none,but when I had some, we made these. That's how old this project is. It's so old it's New again.) on a rainy day!
