No-Sew Fabric Pumpkins with #Cottonelle

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CottonelleTarget http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

Pairing together a few unlikely supplies to create something amazing for almost no money at all... in my book, that's just amazing!  So I'm pretty much over the moon with these No-Sew Fabric Pumpkins made with Cottonelle Triple Roll.


Pretty cool, right?  


If you have 5 minutes and some general stuff from around your home and yard, you can make these easy No-Sew Fabric Pumpkins too!  


Supplies:
Cottonelle Triple Roll, one roll per pumpkin
Fabric {I used a mix of fun orange patterns plus orange burlap}
Newspaper
Sticks for your yard
Also needed: Ribbon to embellish {optional}, scissors, and a hot glue gun

I picked up this Cottonelle Triple Roll from Target {aka My Happy Place} because it's super fluffy and soft so it makes THE fluffiest No-Sew Fabric Pumpkins!  So, first things first... grab your coupon for a FREE box of Kleenex with your Cottonelle Triple Roll purchase, available at Target while supplies last.  


Now, grab a roll of Cottonelle Triple Roll and place it in the middle of a big piece of newspaper.  Start tucking the corners of the newspaper into the center of toilet paper roll.


Keep tucking the corners into the middle until it looks like this.  It doesn't have to be perfect.  In fact, the messier the better because it will give your pumpkin a nice full look!


Now do the same thing with your cute fabric.  You'll need about 1/4 yard per pumpkin.

Lay out your fabric with your newspaper wrapped roll of toilet paper in the middle and start tucking the corners into the middle.




Once you're all done wrapping your fabric, you'll need a hole in the middle still for the stem.  I use my big scissors and shove them down into the middle to make a space for the stem because it's pretty tight in there now with all of the newspaper and fabric.


Then just grab a stick from your backyard, put a dab of hot glue on the end of it, and push it down into the hole to make a natural looking stem.


You can leave the simple, or add ribbon or twine for a little embellishment/stem.


And just like that, you've got yourself some cute new home decor for Halloween and Fall!  



And who would ever think that it's made from a roll of Cottonelle?!  Grab your coupon for a FREE box of Kleenex with your Cottonelle Triple Roll purchase at Target, and you can get crafty with Cottonelle too!
