Dollar Store Painted Pumpkins -

3 Materials
30 Minutes

Create this budget friendly fall DIY using $1 fake pumpkins and chalk paint. These pretty pumpkins are perfect for adding chic neutral fall decor to your home for less!
The great thing about using chalk paint, is that there is no prep for this easy fall DIY project. Just start painting! Plus the chalk paint gives the pumpkins a little more texture than using acrylic paint.
Once the paint was dry, I added a little bling to the stem using my favorite product for giving pieces a gold finish.

    Did you seal the finish of the pumpkins? They look lovely

    I wonder if this would work on the Dollar Tree ceramic pumpkins too?

      Ann, I don't see why not. If the ceramic is really shiny you might have to scuff it up a bit. Good luck!
