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!

2021 Fall Hobby Lobby Finds

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?

Scrap Wood Pumpkins

Supplies:

*Scrap Wood

*Apple Barrel Paint-I used Harvest Orange and White

*Cinnamon Sticks

*Raffia-I used natural and orange colored from the Dollar Tree

*Sanding Block or Sand Paper

*Hot Glue Gun-Amazon affiliate link

*Painter’s Tape

*Paint Brush

*Spouncer-optional

The first step is to paint your pumpkins. I chose “Harvest Orange” Apple Barrel paint for my base color. Once that dried I took my sanding block and distressed my wood a bit.

Next I took my spouncer and added white polka dots to my small pumpkin. If you don’t have a spouncer you can certainly just free hand your dots.

While my small pumpkin dried I took my painter’s tape and taped off my stripes on my big pumpkin and then painted those white as well.

Once the paint dried i peeled off the tape. I then took my sanding block and distressed the pumpkins a little more until I got my desired look.

Next for the stem of the pumpkins I took a cinnamon stick and broke it in half and used half for each pumpkin, securing with hot glue. Not only does this look super cute but it also smells good!

Now, these are adorable just like this but to dress them up even more I decided to add a bow to mine. Shocker, right? HaHa

I simply took a few smaller pieces of burlap ribbon and raffia and tied up a cute little bow.

I did a live video on this door hanger but thought it turned out too cute not to put on the blog so here it is. I love how this turned out and you could certainly put your own twist on it to make it your style.

I chose to add a bow to my hanger because if you know me, you know I put bows on darn near everything…HaHa! I love the farmhouse look that the wood beads added to it. What do you all think?
