Glamorous Dollar Store Pumpkin {Halloween craft}

September 25, 2015 20 By EngineerMommy

Want to make some fun pumpkin crafts for Halloween?! During one of my recent trips to the dollar store, I picked up 3 craft pumpkins and I will be sharing three different (possibly more!) ways to spruce up a dollar store pumpkin! They don’t have to be stark orange, plastic-y pumpkins forever! They can be glamorous white pumpkins featuring a gold spiderweb and black spiders!! Like today’s little project! This one was so simple to put together and only cost me the pumpkin itself- which was $1! I love a bargain craft project!

In addition to the pumpkins themselves, here are the other supplies I used:
Supplies:

Directions:
1. Spray paint the pumpkins white.
