Dollarstore pumpkin make over

I love the dollarstore. It's like a big thrift store for me :) I love how you can get something for a great price and with a little effort they can be transformed into something amazing!

I picked up three little pumpkins. They were cute the way they were but I had an idea. With a little chalk paint that I had left over I painted the pumpkins all white. Then I sanded down the ridges and with some distress ink, I inked the ridges. Had some wire rope that I have been hoarding forever that I wrapped around a pencil to get the spirals. I then created a leaf form from some wire I had and glued some burlap over it.

These three little pumpkins are now waiting to be sold at my booth.

Have a great day!
