You all know how I like to makeover my Dollar Tree finds so here’s another one for ya! I found this leaf cut-out and I instantly had ideas for it! If you see one of these cut-outs be sure to snatch it up!
Supplies you will need:
*Walnut gel stain
*Blessed word cut-out, I got mine in a pack from Hobby Lobby
The first step is to stain your leaf. I used a paper towel and rubbed a light coat all over.
Next, I used my waverly brush and dabbed it with just a tiny amount of white paint and lightly brushed that over my stained leaf. The lighter you want your leaf the more times you will repeat this step.
Next, I used my Merlot colored paint to paint my “blessed” word.
Once that dried, I used my E6000 spray adhesive to glue my word down. You can get this spray with my affiliate link HERE! If you haven’t tried this yet, it is a game changer!
To finish my leaf, I wrapped the stem with jute twine, added a cute little raffia bow, and glued a piece of twine on the back for a hanger! Easy enough, right? I can’t get over how cute this turned out! I’m gonna chalk this up as another Dollar Tree win!
You may have seen these cute little velvet pumpkins at your local Dollar Tree. I knew I had to grab some as soon as I seen them. They are cute just the way they are but my mind already had other plans to make them even cuter!
I did a little something different with each one. With the navy pumpkin I simply took some jute twine and wrapped the stem. I did use my floral cutters to cute the wonky edges off of the stem before I wrapped it.
Next, I took some raffia and tied a cute bow around the stem. I grabbed these cute little Fall leaves at Hobby Lobby so I added that to the raffia bow to finish it off.
For the pink pumpkin I started off by removing the stem.
Once I had the stem removed, I then took a cinnamon stick and stuck that in the center for the stem.
Next, I took some skinny buffalo check ribbon and tied a bow. I then did the same thing with some raffia and glued that on top of the buffalo check bow. To finish this one off I used a few of the same leaves from the pack I got at Hobby Lobby.
For the last pumpkin I started by again removing the stem.
I then tucked all of the material back in the center of the pumpkin. I took the same skinny buffalo check ribbon I used on the pink pumpkin and used that to decorate my pumpkin. I used three pieces of ribbon and simply wrapped it from the center of the pumpkin under around and stuck the end in the center to secure it down.
I used a stick for the stem on this one and kept it simple with a cute raffia bow.
So, what do you think? Can you believe these started off as $1 pumpkins from the Dollar Tree?!
I started off by mixing my two paint colors together. I used Anita’s “Pumpkin Orange”, and Apple Barrel “Tuscan Red” for my paint colors. Next, I painted my pumpkin, leaving the eyes, nose, and mouth unpainted as we will be covering them with scrapbook paper next.
Next I took my scrapbook paper and traced over the eyes, nose, and mouth and then cut the pieces out.
Once I had that done, I took my mod podge and adhered the scrapbook paper to my pumpkin. If you pieces of paper don’t fit the shapes on the pumpkin just right, don’t worry. You can always go back and use a sanding block to sand off the excess paper on the edges.
Next, I used a piece of jute twine to add a hanger to my pumpkin.
To finish off this cutie I simply made a cute little bow by criss-crossing a few different patterns of ribbon and adding some raffia to finish it off.
