Dollar Tree Pumpkin Upgrade

2 Materials
1 Hour

Dollar Tree has been one of my favorite stores lately! I love the fall stuff they have this year.

Here is one of the projects I did with their letter pumpkins.

These pumpkins are super cute, but I can never find the letters I want lol.

I combined three of these together to make a larger one.

Step 1: Remove Embelishments

The first thing I did was to remove the bows and leaves that come on it. (Careful, those leaves are sharp!)

Step 2: Hot Glue Together

Once you decide on a shape, simply hot glue the three pumpkins together.

Step 3: Paint

For the paint, I mixed latex white paint with some baking soda to give it some texture.

Then, I gave it two coats of paint.

Step 4: Rub in some coffee grounds

Yes, coffee grounds! I used this technique on an old vase and loved how it looks so decided to try it on this project.

Step 5: Seal

Once it was dry, I added some lines and then I used a clear coat to seal it all.

Step 6: Add Embellishments

I added the leaves back on and then put some raffia in a bow to finish it off.

There you have it! A simple dollar tree pumpkin upgrade :)
