I love fall! I love wearing cozy sweaters, cute boots and decorating my home for the cooler season. I don’t know what it is about this season that just brings a dorky smile to my face! (To be honest I love all seasons for different reasons -yes that rhymed lol) <– see dork!
Anywho I’ve been on a search to find items to decorate my home with for the fall season. I wanted items that I would love for a long time, are super easy to make and won’t cost an arm and a leg. I came across these orange pumpkins from the Dollar Tree and decided to buy them and see what I come up with at home. You may remember these pumpkins from a Dollar Tree Haul I did a few weeks ago.
Inspiration struck me while I was out one day and noticed a huge pumpkin with studs all over it. I decided to give it a try and this is what I ended up with:
Not too shabby, eh? I think they look so cute and go perfectly with my living room decor. Below I just have them sitting on a candle stick from the Dollar Tree that I had from a few years ago.
To make your own you will need the following supplies:
- foam pumpkins (from the dollar tree or craft store)
- mod podge or school glue
- craft paint (in color you prefer)
- thumb tacks (i got mine from the dollar tree)
- paint brush
- foam brush
Using your foam brush paint your pumpkins and allow to dry. You may need a few coats of paint to really whiten your pumpkin. I did three coats, allowing for drying time in between. It took me a total of 30 minutes for the paint to completely dry.
Next grab your mod podge (or glue) and dab a little of the glue to the stem of the pumpkin and add your glitter. If your using mod podge, you may need to work quickly before it dries and in a ventilated area. The smell is very strong and may get you sick.
And there you have it folks. A nice inexpensive fall room decor. This is a super simple craft project you can do while you’re watching TV or maybe get your kids involved! I think they’d love it!
Until soon my friends!
