Toddler Pumpkin Art

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CottonelleTarget  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

I’m picky about two things.  Well, I’m sure I’m picky about more than two things, but these two things came to mind right now, so I’m going to go with it!

1.  My peanut butter must always be creamy {no chunky pb in this house}, and it should always be Jif, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

2.  Our toilet paper will always and only be Cottonelle.  It’s the best.  Hands down.  End of story.  I always buy ours at Target because not only is Cottonelle the best, but Target is the best too!

Not only is Cottonelle toilet paper the best choice for all your bathroom needs {and I’ll leave that comment at that}, you can use the cardboard roll after the tp is all gone for some pretty fun crafts and projects.  I like to save ours and whip them out for rainy day fun with my toddler every once in a while.

This month, we used our Cottonelle Triple  Roll cardboard tubes to make some super cute Toddler Pumpkin Art!

The process is VERY simple.  I will say that I had other visions for this project, but love how the results turned out in the end.

To make your own pumpkin art, you’ll need:

Cottonelle Triple Roll cardboard tubes

orange paint

white cardstock

blank frame

washi tape {I went with black and white patterns}

cutting machine {to cut your pumpkin silhouette}

black fine tip pen

Now, originally, I had planned for my little guy to stamp using the cardboard tube {as seen in the photo above on the very bottom sheet of cardstock}.  Well, his little two year old mind didn’t want to do that {the stamped one was mine}.  Instead, he used his cardboard tube as a paint brush and just painted to his little heart’s content.

So, I went with it.  After all, it’s his creation I want to remember, not my own.

So once it dried {and boy did it take a while because he used a lot of paint}, I cut a pumpkin silhouette with my Cricut, sized it to a 5 x 7 frame, and popped the orange painting he created behind the silhouette.

I also added some black and white washi tape to my frame since it was just plain old silver.

And to make sure I remember when he made it, I added his name and the month and year to the white of the cardstock!

I have visions of future painting projects with our Cottonelle Triple Roll cardboard tubes.

Christmas trees, snowmen, hearts….oh my!!
