This easy Dollar Store Pumpkin Craft is a fabulous way to take those plastick-y orange foam pumpkins from the dollar store and transform them into something fun and festive for the Halloween season! This is a really simple & straightforward craft project and costs next to nothing to put together! For this project today, I actually started with the pumpkins that were the result of this project! Here is what my final pumpkin topiary looks like!
