Dollar Tree Fall Centerpiece

This fun Dollar Tree fall centerpiece, with an adorable little blue truck, is being shared as part of this month’s Dollar Store Divas blog hop.

Be sure to visit my blogging friends at the end of this post to see their fall crafts.

We have some great ideas to share with you!

If you’ve visited here before, you know I LOVE dollar store crafts.

If you do as well, I have over 80 projects of all things dollar store you can check out.

There is something for every season and general crafts as well.

You may have seen my Dollar Tree haul video I shared a couple of weeks ago.

I found a couple of wood truck cut-outs and thought they’d be perfect for a fall centerpiece:

I’ve been obsessed with all things little red (or blue) truck decor for the past couple of years.

Last year I totally jumped on the truck bandwagon with a red truck holiday tablescape and red truck front porch.

For my fall decor this year I’m going with blues and oranges.

It may sound like an unusual pairing, but you can see how pretty it looks in this dollar tree pumpkin door hanger I just finished.

It’s totally my new favorite!

Let’s get to this fall centerpiece.

Supplies Needed For Dollar Tree Fall Centerpiece

Step 1.

Paint the tires with black paint.

Step 2.

Paint the truck with blue paint.

Step 3.

Paint the pumpkins with metallic orange paint.

Step 4.

Paint both sides front and back. I did go back and add metallic silver paint to the tires and the top of the truck.

Step 5.

Use hot glue to attach the two trucks together with a small crate (also found at the Dollar Tree).

Step 6.

Add a piece of foam cut to fit snug in the middle of the two trucks.

I didn’t want to hot glue it, because I will probably remove it to use for Christmas.

Step 7.

Add the fall flowers to the truck centerpiece. You can add a little hot glue if you want, but they should be secure just with the foam.

Step 8.

Add a few pumpkins and whatever decorations you like. If you are curious about the painted window, I share a tutorial at Ideas For The Home by Kenarry.

So what do you think? Isn’t this little truck just adorable?

I think it would look great painted aqua, or even white.

Add any color flowers that you like to totally change the look!

I love this. Those little trucks are the best and I cannot find them at my Dollar Tree. You did a great job on the arrangement too. I am terrible at that. LOL!
