Toilet Paper Pumpkin Blog Candy

THIS WILL STAY AT THE TOP UNTIL OCTOBER 1st.  LEAVE A COMMENT FOR A CHANCE TO WIN A TOILET PAPER PUMPKIN This weekend's Clear Dollar Stamps color challenge is hosted by my friend Lisa. We are to use the colors Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Green, Turquoise. I think I got all my colors in here for my Charlie Tag. Sorry for the poor pictures. It is definitely not fall like today..I thought I would give my blog buddies a chance to win a pumpkin.  I also used the Limited Supply Challenge for this tag.  To use Halloweenish colors and limit your embellisments.


I created a tutorial for you to see how I made my pumpkin. I have given these out as gifts and everyone loves them.. I made several of these and would love to send one your way. Just leave a comment on my blog and I will pick a random winner on October 1st.



I colored my image and made it into a tag for my pumpkin. I used Charlie Harvest Time (sentiment), Charlie Tweens (horse) and the Everyday Jar-Gon (candy corn).











Next I took a roll of toilet paper..







I cut a large circle of fabric approximately 20 inches wide and set the toilet paper on top. I then brought all the edges up and tucked it into the middle of the toilet paper.








I then added a 8 x 4in piece of accordian folded brown paper bag and a 9.5 x 4 in piece of fabric that I frayed a bit. I also added a cinnamon stick and raffia.



SO leave me a comment and I will add you into the drawing. I will leave this up until October 1st..(my daughter's 21st birthday) Thanks so much for coming to take a peek at my blog.

  6. I've never been first in anything! Hope it brings me luck. When I saw toilet paper on SCS I had visions of wet sluggy messes of thin paper and glue but what a surprise. So easy and quick. I will definitely be borrowing this wonderful idea. You did a great job. I'll be following your blog too.

  66. Is Bigfoot Genuine or fake? For more than 400 years, there have been reporting’s of a guy like beast that's utterly coated in hair.
