Happy Camper Pumpkin
There are so many great projects you can create with dollar store pumpkins. So stock up for lots of create fun this Fall.
Small Faux Flowers
Round Wood Slices
Patterned Paper Tape
I painted the entire pumpkin with the color, Flamingo, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company. Once the paint was dry, I added painters tape around the middle of the pumpkin.
I painted the color, Mermaid Tail, below the tape. Once I removed the tape, I painted a yellow stripe of the color, Colonel Mustard, between the other 2 colors
I used a pencil eraser to add white dots to the Flamingo.
I painted a door and a window using the color, Driftwood.
I outlined the door & window with the color, Midnight Sky, then glued small faux flowers under the window.
I painted a popsicle stick with Midnight Sky, inserted it into the front of the pumpkin, then glued it onto a wood round to create a wheel. I also added 2 wood rounds at the back of the pumpkin to form rear wheels.
I painted 3 toothpicks, inserted them into the top of the pumpkin, then draped bakers twine between each one. I made pennants by folding patterned paper tape over the twine then cutting it into triangles.
This pumpkin project is sure to make you a happy camper! And, what a fun project to do with the kids this Fall.
