Metallic Pumpkin Craft w/ Chalkboard BOO MessageOctober 9, 2015
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!
Dollar Store Craft Pumpkin Makeover
1 dollar store pumpkin
metallic silver spray paint
small piece of cardboard
small chalkboard label
1. Spray paint your pumpkin with the silver metallic paint.
2. Using the cardboard, extend the tiny little stem that comes with the pumpkin into a more dramatic and elegant stem. Make it longer and make it curve a bit!
3. Using hot glue, wrap the stem with the twine. Secure with glue in multiple spots around the stem.
4. Hand the little chalkboard label and write a fun message on the label, like BOO!
Wasn’t that one so easy?!
I’m loving my new pumpkin with its adorable little chalkboard label! Right now, it’s sitting on my fireplace mantel, which I have recently decorated for Halloween! Stay tuned for my post that shows my new SPOOK-tacular mantel!

I can’t resist those Dollar Store pumpkins, either! I have several that I reuse every year and if I need more, they are only $1. I really like your metallic pumpkin craft with the chalkboard message – so cute and creative!
Those dollar store pumpkins always call my name when I’m there! 🙂
Thanks for visiting, Alli!
Cute project. I’m a Dollar store shopper this time of the year too. So many inexpensive items for crafts can be found there.
Yep, can’t beat the Dollar Store for seasonal crafts! Thanks for visiting, Carol!
So fun! I will check out the dollar store this weekend and see what I can find!
Have fun shopping, Jen! And let me know if you try this metallic pumpkin craft!

Oh I have never thought about spray painting a pumpkin metallic. I am metallic lover and can’t wait to try this. I love decorating pumpkins for fall!
Oh, it’s so much fun and so easy to spruce up a dollar store pumpkin! Thanks for visiting, Chelsee!
Well, since I have a tendency to mess up crafts after buying a ton of expensive materials, these look like something I should try with them being at the dollar store. Thanks for the idea
Yes, there’s almost no risk with the dollar store projects! 🙂

Boy, I need to stock up on dollar store pumpkins. These are so cute, and they’re easy enough that even I could do it.
You should definitely try this craft, Debbie! Thanks for visiting!
That is so creative. I would have never thought of that for a Dollar store pumpkin. I need to really look at the stuff there and think what I can turn it into. Great decoration!
So cute. We just bought some pumpkins and I’m planning on painting them instead of carving them.
Yes, totally fun to paint pumpkins! Thanks for your comment, Shell!
I need to get to the Dollar store! Gosh so many possibilities! Love your twist on the pumpkin, so classy! I guess I can experiment with different elements and if I mess up its only $1!
Yep, it’s a great way to play with crafts! Thanks for visiting, Felicita!
What a cute Halloween decoration. I have some hammered metal spray paint and a few dollar store pumpkins. I might just have to try this!
It’s totally easy! Try it! 🙂
