by Clubhouse Jr. staff

Gather

toilet paper roll
orange patterned fabric
batting
small twig (or cinnamon stick)
green pipe cleaner

1. Lay the toilet paper roll on a 22-inch square piece of orange fabric and thin batting.
2. Gently tuck the fabric into the toilet paper roll, one corner at a time.
3. Poke a twig into the center.
4. Twist a green pipe cleaner around your finger and pull it off. Poke in one end next to the stick.
5. Have Mom tie a big ribbon around the neck of the twig and pipe cleaner, trimming the ends to a point.
6. Ask Mom where she would like your perfect pumpkin to go.
