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 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?!
*Paint-I used Waverly chalk paint “Celery”, Apple Barrel “Tuscan Red”, “Black”, and “Pewter Gray”.
*Embellishments of your choice
Now, don’t get me wrong, this little truck is cute as it is but just wait until you see it after I get done with it!
To start off I removed the tree from the back of the truck. Next, I painted the body of the truck with my “tuscan red” paint.
Next, I painted my tires with my black paint and the fenders with my “celery” paint.
Once those were dry, I took my gray and added some highlight color to the tires. I also, took my “celery” color and added some highlights to the body of the truck.
Next, I added a little mini ornament embellishment on the door of the truck. I found these in the Christmas section at Wal-mart.
To finish off the truck, I used a Christmas pick to replace the tree that was in the back of the truck. I found my pick at Wal-mart. I simply cut down the stem and hot glued the top of the pick to the back of the truck.
Well, what do you think? Quite the transformation, right? I just love how it turned out!
