How to Make Stuffed Pumpkin Baskets

Even though I don’t use all the ones that I make, I love creating these cute little candy holders for Halloween.

I need to start on my Christmas ones instead, but I just love pumpkins and fall colors. Many of the pumpkins that are plain will stay out until Thanksgiving.


Yogurt Cup, Soup Can, Over-sized TP Roll, or whatever else you can find

Orange Fabric (Square, enough to fold over your cup/can)

Toilet Paper

Twine or Wire (something to make a handle)

Green Ribbon/fabric (optional)

Hot Glue


Lay your fabric out. Set your cup in the middle. Start folding your tp, and lay it around the cup.

Bring the fabric up to the inside of the cup and hot glue it to the edges.

Next, you can add your handle. I have used lots of different things for handles, this time it was just plain twine. It was actually taken from a tag on a bag someone had given me. I have used plain wire, ribbon, and wire with raffia hot glued on. Anything will work! Hot glue this on as well.

Lastly, tie a little green ribbon to one side of the handle, just to add a bit of green like a leaf. You could also hot glue some black felt on the outside of the pumpkin to make eyes and a mouth for a jack o’ lantern.

Have fun using your imagination and creating! For more pumpkin ideas check out these links!
