DIY Dollar Tree Pumpkin Decor
No one panic, I am fully aware that it
Dollar Tree is one of my go-to stores for seasonal decor for two reasons: 1. the price, obviously 2. I like to change up my theme each year so I have to buy things I don’t mind repainting 50 billion times. Plus they have an unlimited number of pumpkins which is exactly what you are gonna need for these fun fall decor projects!
DIY Dollar Tree Pumpkin Cake Plate
First, paint your edge-glued panel & pumpkins your fall themes colors! I went with white & dark glue… & then later decided on burnt orange & white ? Did you follow along with that saga on our Instagram?
Next, take out the small stem on each of the pumpkins. They should come off pretty easy, they are only held on by a toothpick.
Now its time to attach the edge glued panel to the top of the pumpkins.
I am not sure why I got all the way to this point before realizing I wasn’t happy with this color combo. Luckily it was an easy fix! All I had to do was saran wrap the white pumpkin & paint the tray top & blue pumpkin.
Thats it! Easiest pumpkin decor ever…. that is until you see the next one ?
Which color did y’all prefer for the cake plate?
Pumpkin Candle Stick Holders
- Foam Pumpkins
- Tall Candle Sticks
- Spray paint
These are pumpkins I had from last year but I wanted to change up my color theme.
Start by removing the stem & tracing the base of the candle on the top of the pumpkin.
Next, use a knife to cut around the outline & remove the foam inside. I cut about half way into the pumpkin
This is what it should look like. Don’t cut too much because the candle won’t sit snug inside the pumpkin.
Make sure the candle fits well, if it is a little wobbly cut deeper into the pumpkin & remove more foam.
Now that all the holes are cut its time to paint! This year I am going with a natural fall theme. Rust & copper colors are making my heart happy this fall.
Give each pumpkin two coats of color & you’re done! How cute are these candle holders?! Plus this is definitely a DIY pumpkin decor project you can complete during nap time!
I can’t wait to decorate for fall this year! My plans are to keep it simple & cozy with natural fall colors. You can follow along with this year’s best DIY fall projects, budget-savvy decor, & giveaways by signing up for our fall email list!
