Dollar Tree pumpkinsYou’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!

Supplies

So I gathered up the supplies that I needed to make them.

Dollar Tree Tumbling Blocks Game

Paint

Paint Brush

Sticks from your yard – or something to make a stem

Ribbon

Scissors

Hot Glue and Glue gun

adding glue to blocks

Step 1

Place a small amount of glue on the side of one of the game blocks.

Glue another block to that block.

Step 2

Take the two blocks you just glued together and glue another block to the top of those making sure that the block is centered.

Step 3

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.

Let dry.

Step 4

Glue the two pyramids from Step 3 together, back to back.

Then wrap with a rubber band.

Let dry.

Step 5

Once your blocks have dried, it’s time to paint your pumpkin!

Step 6

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.

Step 7

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.!!!!

Love it.
