My boys have made these at their preschool and I still get them out every year to decorate my mantle with for Halloween. A fantasticly easy craft to do with little ones!
big square of orange fabric
scrap strip of a green fabric
brown craft bag or lunch bag
First, lay the toilet paper on top of the fabric, and then start pulling the fabric up and tucking it inside the tube. Go all the way around until the roll is covered.
Then fold and twist your paper bag, which will become the pumpkin's stem.
Two ways to do the "leaves." 1) Fold the strip of green fabric in half lengthwise. Then cradle it around your twisted paper bag "stem." Or 2) Lay it over the top open, tucking in slightly, so that it becomes two leaves.
Finally, wrap some raffia loosely around the base of your "stem", and push it in the top. Twisting gently helps secure it. Presto pumpkins!
