Toilet paper pumpkins


DIY Halloween decorations

Toilet paper pumpkins as seen on our Halloween Excitement Pinterest board.

What you need:

  • A roll of toilet paper (or several depending on how many you want to make)
  • Orange and green tissue paper
  • Glue (white glue or a glue gun will do the trick)
  • Black craft paper, permanent marker or paint
  • Raffia
  • String (you may not use this)


1. Roll a square of orange tissue paper around a roll of toilet paper.

2. Sticke the ends of the tissue paper into the two whole at each end of the toilet paper roll and glue on edge on top of the other to secure the tissue paper.

3. Use the green tissue paper and raffia to give the pumpkin a bit of a stem. Scrunch it up and if necessary use a piece of string to hold it together.

4. Insert the stem into the hole at the top of your toilet paper pumpkin and use some glue to secure it in place.

5. The fun part. Using either black craft paper, permanent marker of paint give your pumpkin a face. Pick any design you want just like you would if you were carving a pumpkin.

What’s great about this DIY Halloween decoration is that after Halloween is over you can unwrap the toilet paper and use it. Environment and budget friendly!

All of the supplies you need should be available at your local craft store.
