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
- 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.
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!
I love a good before and after picture to really see the difference:
Remember I mentioned the orange foam Dollar Store pumpkins? Check out the pumpkin topiary I made last year. It is still one of my favorite Fall crafts!
