We are making another pumpkin decoration for Thanksgiving and this one is made with items you just might have in your pantry or kitchen!

Start with:

  • 2 Paper Towel Rolls
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Lunch Sized Paper Bag
  • Scissors

Create it!

Step 1: Cut 1 inch. rings, 3/4 of the way around a paper towel roll. Cut the 3/4 portion off of one ring to create a little tab at the end of the paper towel roll.

Step 2: Glue the tab to the other end of the paper roll to create a ring.

Step 3: Repeat steps one and two, for a second ring but right before gluing the tab to create the ring, cut 2-3 rings off the top of the paper roll so the ring is slightly smaller than the first.

Step 4: Paint the rings orange.

Step 5: Glue the smaller ring to the top of the larger ring.

Step 6: Twist the paper bag and place it into the rings to create a stem.

Step 7: Paint the rings green that were cut off in Step 3 and glue to the base of the stem.

So many fun ways to use paper rolls! Find another of our favorite pumpkin crafts for Thanksgiving here.
