10 Materials
45 Minutes

What you think about this Pumpkin made with Dollar Tree Splatter Screens? It looks spectacular and you can decorate at your own style. Here is a list of the materials you will need for this tutorial.


  • Dollar Tree Splatters
  • wire (gauge 26)
  • Flowers
  • Glue gun
  • Foami Sheets
  • Mesh Tube
  • Satin Nylon Trim Cord
  • Ribbon
  • Welcome Sign (optional)
  • Spray paint

Well for this tutorial you will start by painting the three pieces (splatters) using spray paint and let it dry completely. After drying, cover the handle using the Satin Nylon Trim Cord .

Put them to dry in a place where air can enter from both sides to dry faster. After drying, cover the handle using the Satin Nylon Trim Cord.  

Take two of the splatters and bend the handle in the direction through the middle of the circle. Try to fold both as evenly as possible since these will be the base of the pumpkin. 

Then arrange the splatters as follows: two with the handle folded down and the other splatter with the unfolded handle on the opposite side as if it were the stem of the pumpkin. Personally I like to lower it a bit to create as a depth in the stem.

Once you have them in the position that you want your pumpkin to look, hold them with a clothespin or pin to make it easy for you to tie them with the wire. Cut a piece of wire and tie the pieces from the front to the back. As you can see in this photo right next to the clamp on the left you can see a piece of wire holding both pieces (splatters).

Continue to fasten the wires until you see you can place the pumpkin in a flat surface. Now is the part where we are going to decorate the pumpkin.

I added a foam sheet piece on the top with the intention of reusing the pumpkin next year and simply changing the decoration without having to do everything from the beginning.

This way you only unfasten the wires that will be holding the foam sheet and done. The foam sheet also works if you use the hot glue that does not damage the piece where you will be glueing the flowers and the rest of the decoration.

Hold it in place and use the wire to tie the piece of foam sheet to the splatter.

Arrange the flowers. An easy way is to open in the middle and divide the flowers to both sides. You can cut and paste them individually using a clamp.

As I intend to reuse them later in some other tutorial, what I did was tie them with the wire to the stem and then cover it with the mesh tube. To glue the mesh tube I used hot glue.


Continue to decorate your pumpkin ...

The Welcome sign was placed in such a way that it covered the wires that I put in the center to join the pieces.

    LOVE it, but would like as a door hanging. Can the two handle "stands" be removed?
