You know me and dollar store pumpkins! I can’t resist them! I see them sitting there on a shelf for only $1 and I know I can make them into something beautiful! I can transform them from this plastick-y orange color to a chic pumpkin decoration! Today’s post is another example of what I’ve done with dollar store pumpkins!
