These Dollar Tree bright orange pumpkins are so fun to transform. This transformation will take a plain boring pumpkin and make it look like you bought it at a high end store! In this blog I am going to show you just how easy it is to do.
Dollar Tree Foam Pumpkin
Tim Holz Collage Paper (Botanical)
Waverly White Paint
Embellishment- Cinnamon Sticks, Sola Flowers, Wired Leaves
First, we need to cover up the orange color. You will need to paint two coats of the Waverly White, otherwise some of the original orange will pop through. Remember, always let your first coat dry before applying the 2nd coat!
Quick Tip: Add a little water to your paint and it will glide on like butter.
Once your paint has dried its time to apply the collage paper. What exactly is collage paper? It’s paper made specifically for decoupaging. What I love about it is that it is super easy to use and it really made this dollar tree pumpkin look so fancy! All you have to do is simply apply a thin coat of mod podge over the pumpkin, working in sections so the mod podge doesn’t dry too quickly. Then, cut a piece of the collage paper and gently lay it onto your pumpkin – I made sure to press down into the groves and covered the entire pumpkin. Once you have it covered, you will apply a top coat of mod podge to seal it. Isn’t this paper gorgeous? I’ve done many projects with it: you can find the paper here.
It’s important for your pumpkin to dry completely before adding any of the finishing touches. I replaced the dollar tree stem with cinnamon sticks, then added my leaves and beautiful flowers. That’s it!
Would you guess this was originally a dollar tree pumpkin? You can make a few of these at a time and use them throughout your home. Make sure to PIN IT for later so you can have it on your board ready to make. Thanks for stopping by and if you enjoyed this DIY you may enjoy this DIY FALL SUNFLOWER.
