Paper Towel Roll Pumpkin Craft

Our house officially went on the market this week. We did a lot of work to get it picture perfect & ready for showings. We have been packing & cleaning around the clock for weeks. With all of the cleaning that we have been doing, I have gone through a lot of paper towels. I mean a lot. This left me with a lot of empty paper towel tubes & some crafting opportunities.

We worked on a couple of crafts this week to use up some of those empty tubes & here they are.

Cut a 3″ – 4″ piece of a toilet paper roll. Cut the roll open & paint it green on both ends & let dry.

Cut around the paper towel roll forming 3/4″ strips about 3/4 of the way down.

Round fold the strips starting from the cut end & tuck into the opposite end of the tube as shown.

Roll the green tube up & stick in the opening on top. Add a little extra paint to your pumpkin if needed.

Cut leaves out of construction paper & glue them to the green roll. Cut a green pipe cleaner in half & roll into spirals. Stick them in the stem to finish off your pumpkin craft.

But we were not done there. Mai chose to paint her tube black instead of orange. She wanted to cut her tube too. We chose to make a big spider out of the black tube. In fact we ended up making two because Mai wanted her spider to have a friend.

To make the spider, paint & cut the tube the same as above. Bend the strips out & then make bends for knees & feet.

Push the uncut core down & bend the legs up around it. Add a little glue behind the knees to make the bends stay. Add googly eyes & glue a pipe cleaner to the inside of the tube.
