I seriously can't have enough pumpkins out this time of the year! These are now lining my kitchen window. They make me smile every time I see them. And they were way easier {and much less goopy} than carving a pumpkin!

Isn't it AWESOME that they started out as a simple roll of Cottonelle toilet paper?
Target is currently running a FABULOUS deal: 
Buy Cottonelle Triple Roll 12 pack or larger and get a FREE box of Kleenex with purchase {while supplies last}.

For this project, you'll need your Cottonelle Triple Roll Toilet Paper from Target, orange tissue paper, green ribbon {I like the mesh kind...it's so nice to work with and "shape-able"} and longish sticks {I went and hacked these off of the crepe myrtles in the front yard...in my PJs...at midnight. In crafting, sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do}.

I love projects that don't require glue or anything extra. You'll just set your pumpkin on top of three sheets of tissue paper. Then bring the edges up and tuck into the inside of the roll...working your way around. Insert your stick into your the center {there will be enough bulk from the tissue to keep the stick from wobbling around too much}.

Very carefully, fluff out the tissue to get the pumpkin-y shape. This will require a bit of finesse since the tissue rips so easily {I found that out the hard way. Thrice.}.

Tie your ribbon to the base of your branch and trim the excess.

I think about a dozen of these lined up on a mantle or down the center of a table would be just darlin', y'all.
