This could be it.
This could be the last fall DIY decor project.
Until next year.
I’m just itchin’ to move along to Halloween.
These were so simple to upcycle, its almost ridiculous.
Its especially ridiculous how I burned my fingertips to pieces with the hot glue gun on such a simple project.
Happens every time.
Every. Single. Time.
I found these little gems at the Dollar Tree in this state:
I started off by giving them a coat of Rust-Oleum Heirloom White, with their bottoms up first, in case any paint came off when I sprayed the tops.
I love Heirloom White. In this spray painter’s opinion, it is the perfect off white.
I painted the stems metallic gold with basic acrylic paint, then took orange grosgrain ribbon and hot-glued it along that ugly seam. I put a dot of hot glue in each little vertical crevice of the pumpkin, then pushed the ribbon in.
This has been a seriously frugal fall decorating season! You can check out my other frugal fall decor below:
