Who doesn’t love a good fall DIY project? I love decorating for the fall season. Whether it’s Thanksgiving or Halloween, it just isn’t complete without Pumpkins. These painted pumpkins look great and add color to your fall décor on a budget. I bought most of the bigger pumpkins from the dollar store, but most of the smaller ones I had from previous years. I love this DIY hack, and I was a painting machine this past weekend, it’s an inexpensive way to add a farmhouse look to your fall decorations. Let’s face it these dollar store pumpkins aren’t exactly the most realistic color, so here is what I did with them.
First up Dollar Store DIY Farmhouse Topiaries
What you will need:
- 3 Dollar Store Pumpkins
- Paint (you can use any paint really)
- Dollar Store Pot
I hot glued the moss on the edges on the pot.
I painted all three pumpkins different farmhouse shades. These pumpkins are pretty bright orange, so I made sure to do at least two coats.
After all the pumpkins dried, I put it all together with glue.
This is such a great decoration for fall and honestly can go any way to add a little pop of color.
My daughter is obsessed with unicorns, so naturally, she loved the idea of a unicorn pumpkin. We stuck with the dollar store pumpkin and got creative to make this one as easy as possible since she is only two and a half.
So this is what I used:
- Dollar Store Pumpkin.
- Unicorn headband for the dollar spot at Target
- Hot glue gun
- Black paint or permanent marker
Paint your pumpkin. I chose pink, but white looks just as cute.
After the paint dries, that is when I took apart the headband. To take apart the headband, I just cut the fabric off the plastic part.
I glued the ears back together and then glued them right onto the pumpkin.
After I glued the horn and ears, I freehanded painted my lashes. I am not the best artist, but I came out pretty good and my daughter doesn’t seem to mind.
After your lashes are dry, you have your unicorn pumpkin.
Sports Fans Pumpkin
This sports pumpkin was a super easy pumpkin to make. My son loved this, especially since he is a die-hard Eagles fan.
So this is what you need:
- Paint (colors of your team)
- Logo from your favorite team. I have a cricket machine, so I just printed out my logo. You can either paint your logo on or look to see if ETSY or Amazon has your team logo stickers.
So here is what I did:
I painted my pumpkin kelly green.
After the pumpkin dried, I added my sports logo to the pumpkin. I have a Cricut machine so I just printed mine. If you are an artist you can draw it or get the logo from amazon or even Etsy 🙂
DIY Dollar Store Painted Pumpkins
Painting these pumpkins was such a super easy project, and it turned out cute. This is pretty obvious what you need; you can paint the pumpkins any color that you desire. I tried to stick the farmhouse colors.
Well I hope you enjoyed your budget friendly pumpkin painting, hope it adds a little zest to your fall decorating. 🙂
