I recently got some custom printed mugs for some company or the other... a dozen of them, I thought they would be a different design, so now I don't know what to do with them... anyone have any knowledge of how to take off the custom printing? not sure if they're just printed, or if they're glazed... if glazed, don't think I can scrape off the design, but maybe I can cover? dunno... HELP!

29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Thanksgiving / TP Pumpkins - very cute and very easy! on: November 14, 2007 09:24:36 PM
I saw this the other night... I picked it up only to realize/feel the TP roll inside, the whole thing, not just the tube part... thought it was adorable... took it apart, made some notes, then surfed the net for directions... didn't find any here, so thought I'd share. If I weren't travelling for Thanksgiving I'd probably whip some up! Perfect for those non-crafters we know, or even kids who need an activity before or after eating on turkey day. I'd love to see what you come up with... the possibilities are endless!

Toilet Paper Pumpkins
1. Cut a piece of orange or brown fall fabric large enough to cover entire toilet paper tube with lots of extra.
2. Place toilet paper roll on the wrong side of the fabric swatch.
3. Wrap with polyfil stuffing to desired roundness.
4. Bring edges of fabric up and around the toilet paper tube and stuff into the top, creating lots of nice pleats.
5. Teacher can hot-glue the fabric in, but not necessary.
6. Cut an old toilet paper or paper towel tube lengthwise and roll up tightly to make a stem. Tape closed.
7. Wrap stem with green or brown fabric strips, ending at the bottom and taping in place.
8. Stick the stem in the hole at the top of the pumpkin. Again, hot-gluing in place is optional.

Getting fancy:
1. Cut fall garlands to have nice additions such as leaves and acorns to tuck in with the stem.
2. Add scent to the pumpkin by adding potpourri the center or scented oils to the polyfil.
3. Experiment with different shapes and sizes by using different brands toilet paper, cutting paper towel rolls down, and using more/less polyfil.
