Bathroom Tissue Pumpkin Craft
You will need:
1 roll of bathroom tissue
orange and green tissue paper
black construction paper


1-Lay the roll of tissue on it's side on several layers of orange tissue paper. Roll in one complete turn to measure how much paper you will need to cover the roll completely. Cut out the piece allowing at least two inches on either side.
2-Cover the roll and tape the ends down. Fold over the sides of the tissue, pressing the edges into the cardboard tube at both ends.
3-Cut several pieces of green tissue in rectangle shape. Choose one end and cut into a point. Twist a few pieces together at the blunt end and tape then into one end of the roll. Leave the pointed end sticking out to form leaves.
4-Cut eyes, mouth and any other features you desire out of black construction paper. Use tape to place on the "pumpkin."
5-Make several with different faces and use them to decorate your mantel, windowsills or table. They are cute, nonbreakable and can be disassembled and put back to bathroom use when the holiday is passed.
