Recycling paper: toilet paper roll paper pumpkin art

I love seeing all the great projects people have created using toilet paper rolls. For Fall, I thought I’d try to create something of my own. My goal was to make something that cost nothing and here it is…my totally free, toilet paper roll art!

Recycling paper: toilet paper roll paper pumpkin art

This project was simple. I saw this rolled paper frame and knew it would be perfect (I antiqued the background with a layer of Mod-Podge and watered down paint). The toilet paper roll strips are 3/4″. After painting and shaping them, I dipped the edges in glue and stuck them on the background. I threaded a piece of wire through the stem, curled the edges and threaded a leaf onto it. I used wire and raffia to make a hanger and hot glued it to the back.
You can change the shape of the pumpkin by changing where your folds are. This is what mine looked like before I shaped them. I’m thinking I’ll try a couple more, a tall skinny one and a short squatty one.
I created this printable paper for the background and frame. Enjoy!
