We have a 4-H open house coming up in a couple of weeks and our club is setting up a table to help promote 4-H to children and their parents. I need to come up with a make-it-take-it craft for these children to do when they come by our club's table.
It has to be fast.
It has to be inexpensive.
It has to be cute.
And most importantly I don't want it to be a paper project that gets thrown away two days later. I want it to be something that the children and their parents can enjoy and display.
~Easy Fabric Pumpkins~
12x12 fabric squares
Paper towel or toilet paper rolls cut into 2-2 1/4 inch pieces
Plastic shopping bags
Sticks approximately 3 inches long
Hot glue gun
Wrap 2 plastic bags around the 2" piece of toilet paper roll. Hold this in place and set in the center of a square of fabric. While still holding on to the plastic wrapped tube, take a corner of the fabric and stuff it down the center of the tube. Continue taking up corners and stuffing them into the center until all fabric is stuffed into the center, glue if neccessary (I didn't find the glue necessary). Finally apply hot glue to the bottom of your stick and place in the center of the pumpkin.
Easy Peasy and adorable to boot!
