Fabric Pumpkins, NO Sewing

These pumpkins are soooo easy.  Just use some fall fabric that matches you fall decor.  You only need half of yard or a fat quarter of fabric.  A half a yard will make two pumpkins.  Then grab a package of toilet paper, yes I said toilet paper.  Place the roll in the middle of your fabric.  Pull up the sides and push them in the hole of the toilet paper roll, and then do the corners.  Add a steam of a cinnamon stick, or cut a piece of a branch of a tree, or a roll of cardboard.  Add leaves cut from felt or paper, or from a silk plant.  Raffia bows would look good too.  The best thing is they're easy to make.  The second best part is they hardly take any space to store till next year, just take out the toilet paper and store the fabric, stem and leaves!

If you bought a 1/2 yard of fabric cut it in half to make two squares.  
(It doesn't need to be an exact square.)
Start with the shortest sides.

Then the other sides.
Now the corners.
Make a stem and leaves.  I used pieces of a branch, some leaves off of a silk ivy plant and vines made of florist wire wrapped with florist tape.  I wired them together with florist wire. 
This fabric was a thick flannel so I needed to trim the corners to get it to work. 

To make a more rounded bottom like the center and right pumpkin I put a large plastic lid under the roll of toilet paper.
