You’ve probably all seen the Dollar Tree mini pumpkins, I know I have. However, I’ve never made them. When I started planning my kitchen for fall those tiny pumpkins jumped into my mind as I knew they would be perfect form my two tiered tray!
So I gathered up the supplies that I needed to make them.
Dollar Tree Tumbling Blocks Game
Sticks from your yard – or something to make a stem
Hot Glue and Glue gun
Place a small amount of glue on the side of one of the game blocks.
Glue another block to that block.
Take the two blocks you just glued together and glue another block to the top of those making sure that the block is centered.
Glue three blocks together by placing glue on the sides.
Next, glue the three stacked blocks from Step two directly to the center of these 3 blocks.
Do this step twice so that you have two small pyramids.
Glue the two pyramids from Step 3 together, back to back.
Then wrap with a rubber band.
Once your blocks have dried, it’s time to paint your pumpkin!
Once the paint has dried on your pumpkin add a stem.
I found sticks in my yard, cut them to the length that I wanted, then hot glued them to the center of the pumpkin.
Tie a bow to the bottom the stem.
Also, if you have any other embellishments, this is the time to add those.
I used “curly-q’s” from a grapevine wreath to make the vines coming off of the stems of my pumpkin.
Simply glue them into place!
They make such a cute addition to the pumpkins.!!!!
That completes the tutorial for tiny fall pumpkins.
These were super easy and so fun to make!
I hope that you found some fun inspiration and if you make any, please send photos.
I’d love to see your project!
