Dollar Tree Pumpkin Block Makeover

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

*Mod Podge-Here is my affiliate link for the one I use!

*E6000 spray-get it HERE with my affiliate link!

*Hot glue gun-here is the affiliate link for the one I use!

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!

Dollar Tree Fall Leaf Makeover

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:

*Leaf cut-out

*Walnut gel stain

*White paint

*Blessed word cut-out, I got mine in a pack from Hobby Lobby

*Merlot Waverly chalk paint

*Paint brush

*Jute twine

*Raffia-optional for bow

*Glue gun-click here for my affiliate link to my glue gun.

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!

Dollar Tree Velvet Pumpkin Makeover

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?!

Mini Scrap Wood Scarecrow

You will need:

*Piece of scrap wood-I used a small piece of a 2×4

*Burlap

*Jute twine

*Paint-whichever colors you prefer

*Paintbrushes

*Glue Gun-Here’s my affiliate link for the cordless glue gun I use.

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.

No Sew Candy Corn Pillow Décor

Supplies needed:

*Waverly fat quarter fabric (Wal-Mart)

*Poly-fil

*Hot glue gun-click here for my affiliate link to the cordless glue gun I use

*Scisscors

*Raffia and ribbon-optional

The first thing I did was round up some yellow, orange, and white fabric. I found these fat quarters of fabric at Wal-Mart but you can find them anywhere that sells fabric or craft supplies. I had the poly-fil on hand but you can also find this at any store that sells craft/sewing items.

Next I took my yellow fabric and folded it in half. I then took my scissors and cut the base shape that I wanted for my candy corn. You want to make sure you have some good, sharp fabric scissors for this project.

Next, I did the same thing with my orange fabric.

Once you have your fabric cut to the correct shape you want to cut through the bottom fold as shown above. Repeat the same step with the white fabric. Don’t forget to cut through the bottom fold on the white fabric as well.

Now, it’s time to start gluing the candy corn together! Yep that’s right…it’s a no sew pillow! I first started by gluing together the sides of the yellow fabric, leaving the top open for stuffing. Next, I lined up the orange fabric to where it needed to be and then folded the bottom edge under for a more finished look and glued that down. I repeated the same step to the back of the candy corn. Remember to leave the middle seams of the front and back of the candy corn open for stuffing.

Next, you will do the same thing to the white fabric. Don’t panic if your fabric doesn’t line up perfectly as you can go back and trim it once you get your candy corn glued together. Make sure and leave the top of the white fabric open so you can put the stuffing in.

Now it’s time to stuff the candy corn. I like to use a wooden stick or dowel to help push the stuffing through. Once you have it as full as you would like then you an glue shut the top of the candy corn.

Once I had my candy corn all glued together I went around and trimmed up where I needed to and round the top a bit. It needed a little something more so I tied some raffia around the middle.

It looks adorable just like this but of course I had to add a bow to mine! I just used a few different patterns of ribbon and crisscrossed my pieces to make a quick and easy bow.
