Bathroom Pumpkin Toilet Paper Cover

Not too long ago I had the opportunity to sponsor a company called They asked me to do an article highlighting pumpkin and fall project ideas for burlap.

It is a great company with fabulous burlap products for your next DIY project so I agreed. 

I created several Fall projects with the burlap and burlap products they sent me.

Today I'm using the orange burlap for a new pumpkin to hide toilet paper. 

I didn't invent this project but I've been doing it in my home for years so I thought I'd pass along the DIY information to you. 

Here is a pumpkin I made a few years ago using Fall colored bark cloth fabric and a champagne cork.

To make this project again using burlap, first I gathered my materials: 

leaves and sticks on orange burlap.

I cut the burlap into 17" x 17" squares then dropped a roll of toilet paper into the center. 

I began wrapping the burlap around the TP on one side and went all the way around the stuffing it into the center tube. 

At this point if you have too much fabric or your burlap is too thick, you can cut off the excess fabric. 

I didn't need to do this as this is a light weight burlap.

When I got to the end I used a piece of driftwood to stuff the end of the burlap into the tube with a leaf. 

You don't want to glue the wood in place because you may want to use the toilet paper at some point. 😆

As you can see this can be done quickly and there is no perfection involved. 

I placed my TP pumpkin on the back of my toilet and it's ready for the next time one of my daughter's is yelling from the bathroom for more toilet paper.

If you have to use this pretty pumpkin in an emergency, just wrap up another roll of toilet paper and you're ready to go again. (literally)

If you'd rather not decorate your bathroom with the pumpkin you can use it anywhere in your house.

Only you (and I) will know there is a toilet paper roll inside. 😉
