Ready to take your Dollar Store pumpkins to the next level? Check out what I did to upscale some cute pumpkins.

By making a few simple changes to your inexpensive pumpkins, you can get a whole new look! You can add new stems, leaves, succulents, twine/jute and vinyl. Doing these extra steps really makes a difference and it turns your Dollar Store pumpkins into classy decor for Fall!


By using twine and a few embellishments you can change the whole look.

First, remove the tinsel.

Now you have the base.

Wrap the plain base with twine or jute.

Now add some leaves and a bow.

With just some hot glue, this went from drab to fabulous! You can get creative and add whatever embelishments you like.

Before & After

What do you think? Here are some other pumpkins I did below.

Here I glued on a wooden stem and added some burlap leaves to the top.

These are some gorgeous ceramic pumpkins that I added some vinyl sayings to.

This is another set of ceramic pumpkins also with vinyl wording.

These are some cute burlap pumpkins I found. I added a stem and some colored leaves.

On this pumpkin, I simply added a succulent and a few more leaves.

I thought these two look great together!

Here is a cute display using my up-scaled Dollar Tree pumpkins.

You can mix and match them depending on what style you are going for.

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial! Check out my Facebook page for more ideas.
