Dollar Store Pumpkin Display – Navy & Gold

The Dollar Store is one of my favourite places to buy materials to knock-off more expensive decor – case in point, painting these dollar store pumpkins is something that I do each year as my tastes and colour schemes change.

I mean really, does anyone really keep these dollar store pumpkins in the original colours?

I think they are actually manufactured to be hideous so that people WILL paint them.

Each of these little bags was $2 and contained 4-5 pumpkins, some pinecones and a few acorns.  I wanted to fill a dish with these mini pumpkins, so I bought 4 bags for a whopping $8.

The process is simple (and not worth photographing) – just paint your minis with leftover paint or dollar store paint in whatever colours you choose to showcase this Fall.

I’m in a navy and gold mood this year, so that’s what I went with.

SOOOO much better!

I set my dollar store pumpkins (which now look like Pier 1 or Pottery Barn ones) to create a Fall coffee table vignette.

I tucked a few random leaves into the mix from a dollar store branch and bought myself a few sunflowers to finish my September look.

I love sunflowers – they just scream “paint a smiley face on me!” don’t they?

$10 and some leftover paint and I’m thrilled with the results.

It’s here; back-to-school, back-to-rules, cooler weather and changing leaves…

 

MY FAVOURITE SEASON!!

Fall Autumn

Have a great one!
