When I seen these cute little pumpkin cut-outs at Michaels the other day, I knew I had to have a few of them. It didn’t take me long to figure out what I was gonna do with this one.
The first I did was take my pumpkin and trace one side on the fabric and one side on the scrapbook paper. I then cut them out and used mod podge to adhere them to each side of the pumpkin. Don’t panic if you have some excess fabric/paper hanging over the edge. Take your sanding block around the edges and it will take care of the excess for you.
Now to finish off the stem, I simply took some jute twine and wrapped the stem.
Also when I was at Michaels I found this super cute Halloween pick and knew I had to have it too! I cut a few pieces off and glued them on right at the bottom of the stem.
I did the same thing on the other side. I used a few pieces of some floral picks I had laying around and tada!
Once your ready to change up your decor for Halloween all you have to do is flip it around! Doesn’t get much easier than that now does it?
You may have seen these wood block pumpkins at the Dollar Tree and thought well these are cute…am I right? Although they are cute just as they are, you know I had other plans. I also found this cute Fall door hanger at Walmart and thought the same thing, however, I bought this to use the cute F-A-L-L letters to make this project!
Supplies you will need:
*Wood block pumpkins from Dollar Tree-any wood block will work for this if you can’t get to a Dollar Tree
*F-A-L-L letters-I found mine from Wal-mart
*Scrapbook paper of choice-mine came from Hobby Lobby
The first thing I did was remove the raffia bows from the top of the pumpkins and cut my F-A-L-L letters apart. Be sure and save the raffia bows for later!
Next, I traced my pumpkins onto my scrapbook paper, cut them out and used mod podge to adhere them to the back of the pumpkin blocks. I used my sanding block to remove any excess paper from the edges.
Now it’s time to add the letters. I used E6000 spray glue my letters on. Like I have said before, this stuff is a game changer!
To finish the pumpkin blocks off I used the same raffia bows that came on them and re-glued them back on. How handy is that!? Now, of course if you didn’t care for the raffia bows you could certainly use something else on yours but I figured hey why not use what you can, right?
So, what do you think? Be sure and send me a picture if you make a set for yourself!
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 love when Hobby Lobby puts out their new seasonal decor! It’s like therapy for me to just walk through isle by isle and try and come up with my color scheme for each season as I decorate my home. I know everyone doesn’t have access to a Hobby Lobby in their town so I like to share a blog post so you can get a sneak peek too!
How cute is this color scheme? I love the pops of light pink!
I am absolutely loving this theme! Instead of changing out all of my old decor, I am thinking I will just add in pops of the navy and purple. So many choices!
As always, they have the cutest selection of ribbon!
So what do you think? Are you ready to go shopping and start decorating for Fall? I know I sure am! Which color scheme is your favorite?
The first thing I did was wrap my burlap around the top half of my board for the hat. I did fold the bottom inch or so over to make a brim for the hat.
Once I had the hat glued on I took a piece of jute twine and tied a little bow on the top of the hat to bunch it together.
Now, it’s time for the paint! I like to use smaller paint brushes for this. I started with the eyes and worked my way down the face. I used a round spouncer for the rosy cheeks but if you don’t have one you can certainly just use a paint brush to make them.
Once I had my face painted on, I then made a little raffia bow to stick on the brim of the hat.
