Now, I know you're having a hard time believing this going to be a pumpkin. Take your fabric and we're going to wrap our toilet paper roll. I found the best way to do this is to take the middle of the sides and tuck those into the hole first. Then take the middle of a side and tuck that in. Now you've got the corners hanging out. Tuck the corners in. Now, with the corners, when you're tucking the corners last, that can give you a little bit of bulk, a little bit of ruffle. That gives it more roundness. Now, go to the other side. You have your corner sticking out here and your corners sticking it out here. Grab the center of the side and tuck that in first. Then use your corners again to give the pumpkin shape. Just tuck all that excess fabric into the center of your toilet paper roll. Now you can't even tell it's a toilet paper roll. It looks pretty cute. My leaf is not completely dried, so I'm going to use one that I've already glued on and is dry. Wrap the leaf around the stem like that and give it a twist right in the center. Then we'll take our pencil and wrap the pipe cleaner around the pencil. Now, that gives your green pipe cleaner a nice viney look. You can bend that anyway you like. Also, you can bend the pipe cleaner that is on the leaf to give you a nice natural looking leaf. Then you just stick your stem right down the center, and there's your pumpkin for the pumpkin patch. This is the real quick and easy craft to do. You can make these up and put them all over your house with all different fabrics, and it really has an impact.
