This craft may just be one of the easiest and most budget friendly crafts I have done. These are my favorite crafts to do! All of the items I used came from the Dollar Tree.

The first thing I did was put my piece of floral foam into my galvanized pail.

Now it’s time to start adding in the succulent picks. I like to start with by tallest picks first and then add the rest in until I have covered all of the bare spots.

Dollar Tree Jack-O-Lantern Hanger

Supplies:

*Jack-o-lantern blank(Dollar Tree)

*Paint

*Scrapbook Paper

*Mod Podge

*Paint Brush

*Ribbon/raffia(if you want a bow)

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.

DIY Dish Towel Pumpkin

Supplies:

*Foam Pumpkin-Dollar Tree

*Dish Towel-I found this buffalo check towel at Hobby Lobby.

*Raffia-Dollar Tree

*Cinnamon Stick

*Knife/Scissors

I seriously cannot get over how stinkin’ cute this little pumpkin is. And the even better part is that it is super easy and cheap! Who doesn’t love a budget friendly craft, right?

If you have a Dollar Tree, run quick and snatch up some of their pumpkins before their gone! They have tons to choose from and they are only $1. If you do not have a Dollar Tree close you can always grab them at Wal-Mart or Hobby Lobby.

The first thing I did with my foam pumpkin is pull out the green stem and then used my knife to cut a circle in the top of my pumpkin. I would say roughly 1 inch.

Next I trimmed my dish towel down to 20in. X 20in. Obviously you can adjust this depending on the size of your pumpkin. Also if you can’t find a patterned dish towel that you like this works great with any fabric also.

After you have your fabric cut to the size you need it’s time to start wrapping your pumpkin. I used my cinnamon stick to help push my fabric into the hole. I started with the bottom left corner and worked my way around. Be sure you are pulling the fabric tight as you are pushing it in the hole.

Now you are ready to stick in your stem. I chose to use a cinnamon stick for mine, but it would also be cute with a piece of a twig.

Lastly, I took several strands of raffia and tied a cute little bow on the stem. I used a little natural colored and a little orange raffia on mine. You can find both of these colors at the Dollar Tree.

All the heart eyes, right? I can’t wait to make more of these!
