Quick And Easy Decoupage Dollar Store Pumpkins

Pick up a few Dollar Store foam pumpkins, some pretty paper and mod podge to make quick and easy decoupage pumpkins for fall.

Hello and welcome to Our Crafty Mom! If you follow me on instagram you may have seen some of the Dollar Store pumpkins I’ve been sharing.

I’m at it again with these pretty decoupage Dollar Store pumpkins and, these may be my favorite yet!

I received product from DecoArt used in this post. This post contains affiliate links at no extra cost to you. Please see my full disclosure here.

For this month’s Farmhouse Hens Challenge, we are all sharing projects using paper. The first thing I thought of was to decoupage something, because paper works so well with decoupage. 

Now I just needed to decide what to decoupage on, and the Dollar Store foam pumpkins popped into my head immediately.

I picked up 8 recently and had a few left in my stash. 

I’m so glad I grabbed these pumpkins when I did. They sell out so fast. I found out something new this year.

If your local Dollar Store doesn’t have what you need in stock, you can order it online with Free Shipping to your Local Store.

That’s great to keep in mind with the busy holiday season approaching.

Let me show you how easy these decoupage pumpkins are to make. Be sure to stay to the end to see the other Dollar Store pumpkin makeovers I’ve done and the paper projects from the talented ladies in this Farmhouse Hens Challenge.

How To Make Decoupage Dollar Store Pumpkins

Supplies

Step 1.

Remove the stem from the dollar store pumpkin and paint it in whatever color you like.

I LOVE the bright blue metallic paint from DecoArt. It has such an incredible sheen to it and you only need one coat to cover the pumpkin.

Step 2.

Cut the paper flowers that you want to attach to your pumpkins. I used gorgeous toile flowers from a paper pack from the Anna Griffin collection with Cricut.

Step 3. 

Use the foam brush to cover the paper flower with mod podge and place it on the pumpkin. Be sure to add enough mod podge to secure the edges of the flower.

Step 4.

Continue to add the flowers to the pumpkin until you are happy with the placement. I used four to five paper flowers for each pumpkin.

I also cut out gold leaves that were on ribbon found at the Dollar Store and love how the gold looks against the metallic blue paint.

Step 5.

Cover the entire pumpkin with two coats of mod podge to ensure the paper is sealed properly. It also gives it a nice shine if you use the gloss mod podge.

Step 6.

Paint the stems using DecoArt twinkles in silver. This stuff is seriously cool! It is brush on glitter paint-so no more messes with glitter everywhere.

I can’t wait to use this for Christmas ornaments!

For a little more height to the pumpkins, I painted wine corks with the same twinkles paint and ended up using those instead of the stems that came on the pumpkin, but you can use either.

Isn’t this such an easy way to update Dollar Store foam pumpkins? Imagine how pretty these would be in purple, or pink for a little girl’s room?

The possibilities are endless with decoupage. You can paint them and use cut outs of super heroes for a boy’s room.

Or add princess cut outs to a pink pumpkin. 

Each year I try to create something new using these pumpkins. You can see even more Dollar Store pumpkin ideas below:

I have been unable to find any sort of pumpkin in dollar store. They are all glass. Can these be painted with chalk paint?

Unfortunately I don’t think this process would work as well with glass. I know Michaels has foam pumpkins. If you use a 40% off coupon you can get one for just a few dollars. It’s crazy how fast the pumpkins sell out. Hope this helps! 😀

This makes me want to paint pumpkins in rainbow colors! The blue is so fun, especially with the gold. Thanks for sharing this budget idea!
