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?!

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.
