Little Fall Pumpkin

I wanted to share this little pumpkin makeover.  It started out as plain, styrofoam, dollar store pumpkin.  Bright orange, but plain.  I bought it with the plans of making a Halloween themed pumpkin out of it.  That didn’t happen.  So I decided to make a Fall themed pumpkin.
Plain dollar store pumpkin
I used a piece of fall themed scrapbook paper.  I’m not the only one that has books and books of scrapbook paper but doesn’t actually scrapbook right?  Anyway—I tore the paper into small-ish sizes and used Mod Podge to glue it down.  I tore the paper because I wanted the rough edges and the little peeks of white.  When gluing the paper down, it did wrinkle up in places because it’s a rounded surface…I like the look. It gives it a vintage-y feel.  
Then I glued down a small crochet doily on the top.  I have tons of these things that I pick up at thrift stores and I’m not always sure what to do with them.  This is a great way to use a small one.  


I’m still not sure if it needs a little something more, but for now it sits with my little fall display, nestled with the scarecrows and pumpkins.  

 Have you transformed any dollar store pumpkins?  Please share in the comments!
 Happy Fall!
