If you have visited here before, you know I love shopping at the Dollar Store.

After all these years I still walk through the store and think to myself  “how can that be a dollar”?

Seriously, I just don’t get it! But I definitely enjoy it!

One Fall item that I look forward to updating from the Dollar Store each year are their pumpkins.

Usually I makeover the standard orange foam pumpkins, but they are not in my store yet, so I went with smaller burlap pumpkins:

I am normally a fan of burlap, but these were in need of an update.

They were a very thin burlap and were ripped in spots.

You could also see the white foam underneath. 

They were definitely still a bargain at a dollar, but I knew they would be just adorable with buffalo check fabric!

Let me show you just how super simple these pumpkins are to make:

Buffalo Check Pumpkins


  • Dollar Store Pumpkins
  • Fabric
  • Hot Glue Gun-my all time favorite glue gun is the Surebonder Cordless Glue Gun because it is cordless, has a drip catch and is under $20! It makes crafting a breeze.


Surebonder Glue Gun Our Crafty Mom


First cut strips of fabric to fit the length of the pumpkin.

You can use whatever fabric you like, but I am on a buffalo check kick and had leftover fabric from my buffalo check curtains.

I thought it would be cool if the pumpkins had a patchwork look to them so I left the fabric loose and just hot glued the top and bottom of the fabric.

You certainly can use Mod Podge if you want it to have a tighter look.

Just continue gluing the fabric strips to the pumpkin until it is completely covered.

As the pumpkin stem was a little small, I also added a stick from the yard to make it a little more substantial.

Tie a strip of fabric to the top and enjoy your adorable buffalo check pumpkin! It literally took me about 20 minutes to make!
