"Orange" you glad...
it's autumn? The kids and I love this time of year. Even Bill loves the nipy air- seems to motivate him with building projects. Here is a little crafty for kids- that is so easy and fun. You just take a fat quarter of orange fabric and tuck it into a tube of bathroom tissue... oh alright, toilet paper! No sewing or pinning or anything like that. Just set the toilet paper roll in the center of the fat quarter and bring the side up and tuck the ends into the tube. Then you roll up a paper lunch bag and shove it into the tube. Add a little leaf and you have one adorable little pumpkin! When it's time to drag out the winter decorations, just snag that fat quarter off the roll and put everything back. Waste not want not! Hope everyone has a great day!

How cute! A wonderful little storage idea for the extra rolls of toilet paper! I can just hear it now, "Mom, we are out of toilet paper." Mom replys, "Go grab one off of the dining room table!" lol

One of the clubs made these for the centerpieces at the awards banquet for 4H in our county today. I was so excited that I could tell someone how to make it. LOL

Neat idea! You could also cover them in red fabric and have apples.

That is so cool! I'm tucking that idea away for when I have to do decorations for our group meeting next fall!
