Blue and White Dollar Tree Pumpkin

Fall Two Tiered Tray

Welcome to 10 on the 10th!  This month’s theme is all things Fall.  Which I love because it’s all things fall here at the Castle. This month I’m sharing a blue and white Dollar Tree pumpkin.

I don’t know about you , but I’m always on the hunt for smaller items to add to my seasonal two tiered tray. All those smaller knick knacks can get a little pricey.

So on a recent trip to the Dollar Tree I spied a few items, that with a little make over, would be perfect for my tray.

Dollar Tree Pumpkin

Of course, my blue and white pumpkin didn’t start out that way.

This is what it looked like when I bought it.

Well, without the white paint splotches.

(Note to self: Take the before picture before you start painting!)

Cute, but not my style.

So, I flipped it over and on the back side gave it  a couple of coats of white paint.

Craft knife, white pumpkin

Originally, I was going to replace the stem with something a little more rustic.

However, I decided  to take a craft knife and mess this one up.

Effectively making this one very rustic.

Once the stem was done, I took some scrap material from my new kitchen valance and used Mod Podge to attach it to the pumpkin.

Blue and White Pumpkin and leaf

While that was drying, I painted a dollar tree leaf in a fall design.

After that,  I attached the leaf to the pumpkin using velcro.

A little raffia added to the stem and my blue and white Dollar Tree pumpkin is finished.

  1. I am always stumped when it comes to decorating with my tiered tray. Never can find cute smaller items. Your checked pumpkin is so stinkin’ cute. I saw so many of those wooden signs at our Dollar Tree I am going to have to go in and get me one. Thanks for the idea, I love it!!

  2. Tammy, great idea to makeover this cute wood pumpkin and mix it into your fall decor!!! Modge Podge is the best, isn’t it?! I am loving all the 10 on the 10th ideas everyone has made this month. <3

    Happy early fall to you and happy decorating,
    Barb 🙂
