Bippity Boppity Boo

Halloween is just around the corner and I am soo excited! This is hands down one of my favorite holidays! Even when I was living in France I made everyone play games and bob for apples so they could get a feel of the holiday. Let the decorating and pumpkin food anything begin!

...and what is all Hallow's Eve without a pumpkin? It's a bit too early to carve any in this weather so until then I have to come up with an alternative and this is what I've got. We are going to turn

this..........................................into this

The supplies you need are a roll of toilet paper, a fat quarter of fabric, a wooden sponge brush, and old dish towel (optional) and extra fabric and ribbon for the stem and leaves.

First things first if you are using a dishtowel wrap it around the roll, then stick the sponge brush in the center of the tube. Now you can start tuck the fabric around the brush until all the fabric forms a cute little pumpkin shape. I wrapped some dark fabric around the stick of the brush and cut some green fabric to look like leaves then tied a ribbon around it. How simple is that?! I love these things! They are cute and festive and make for great centerpieces or mantle decorations.


  1. This is so cute and clever! I think I will try to make one! :)

  2. Very cute! did you make all of those? if so, where is that in your house? I like the chevron background

  3. I made these a few years ago. But your fabrics are seriously cute. I'm gonna have to make them again. Great job!

  4. LOVE IT! I'll be trying this one!

  5. this is great, because once Halloween is over you can just unwrap them and use them for something else - I love that idea! Seriously adorable. Great job!

  6. Thanks for this idea. Never would have thought it and they look GREAT!
