Dollar Tree Pumpkin Makeover
Hey all! I’m back with more of my Dollar Tree haul. Today I’m sharing a Dollar Tree pumpkin makeover! As you can see they have a ton of baby pumpkins, but some are not in the colors that most of us decorate with.
Over the years, I’ve decorated, carved and painted a lot of pumpkins, but I’ve never given a makeover to a Dollar Tree pumpkin.
Shocking, I know!
However, don’t pass those deals by just because they aren’t perfect.
It’s so easy to custom make them to fit your home!
Using chalk paint, I gave my baby boos 2 coats of chalk paint.
I left those bright green stems on to have a handle while I painted.
Trust me, those will be removed later.
Once I had two good coats of paint, I removed the green stems and added a stick from my yard.
Using a craft knife, I cut a hole out of the top of my pumpkin slightly smaller than the circumference of my stick.
Once, my stick was in the pumpkin, I added a little bit of hot glue to hold it in place.
While I was waiting on the pumpkins to dry, I made a few bows to go on the top of my pumpkins.
Each is different, as I made them to go in my sisters homes as well as mine.
One sister has more of a glam style, while the other is more stream lined.
Of course, mine is somewhere in between.
This pumpkin will go in my sisters home that loves a more stream lined look.
She lives in a craftsman bungalow and all of her colors are warm earth tones.
Sister #2 likes lots of girly glam with turquoise!
I knew she would love this ribbon and for a little added glam, I added a fun old ear ring as an embellishment.
And last, but not least, my baby boos!
I wanted a more traditional, shabby chic look.
I have to admit that this Dollar Tree pumpkin makeover was super fun, easy, and took very little time.
My kind of project!
Until next time…..
Cute, cute, cute! I would’ve passed right over those pumpkins as they were for the nubby stems alone. Great job transforming them!
Thank you Rita.
