DIY dollar store PUMPKINS

Sharing is caring!

I am really excited to share these easy to make DIY pumpkins with you today!
Don’t you just love them?Awwh…I do!
And guess what , it was really on the budget!
Found these not very pretty orange color { ewwwh } pumpkins at dollar store.
They were called, carvable pumpkins.
 First of all, I have painted these pumpkins with my off white paint.
I had my little helper, who actually did a great job of painting these pumpkins for me..:-)
 Paint was dry in 2 minutes, literally.
I really loved them white, It was so nice and not original.
Let me tell you, these off white pumpkins almost cost $10 in other stores.
Who wants to pay that much for a pumpkin?
Plain off white pumpkin is truly my style but I wanted to add some twist to it.
Quickly made them look super cute by adding some raffia lines
 and  by drawing chevron pattern with my oil pastel on it !
I used hot glue gun to attach the raffia pieces to the pumpkins!
 After i was done with attaching the raffia lines,
I glued this big spider stencil, that was also purchased at dollar store.
As you see, my lines were not so perfect,
but this is exactly what I love about DIY…I can be so imperfect and still looking good.
This other pumpkin was also made with the raffia lines added on with hot glue gun.
 5 minutes project. YAY!
What do you think?
I am in LOVE.
These pumpkins are part of my dining room fall decoration project.

 If yo have not, I hope you got inspired!
Happy fall my friends!
