DIY pumpkin with NO ROT!! And under two dollars! Dollar store pumpkins given a quick and easy personalized touch with black and gold!

Personalize a dollar store pumpkin!

You know I like projects that are quick and easy… Well the other day I picked up a couple of pumpkins at the dollar store. They looked like pumpkins, you know orange with a brown stem. Yep. But I wanted to give them a personal touch. I love black and gold together so I picked up some gold thumbtacks also at the dollar store. Two pumpkins plus one pack of 300 gold thumbtacks came to $3.00. I painted the pumpkins black with some spray paint although any paint would do. Then I just freehanded a design on each pumpkin by sticking the tacks in them. I wanted one with a monogram and just did a filigree design on the other. The cool thing was that these foam type of pumpkins took the thumbtacks really well and I could remove and replace them without a problem. You could also trace a pattern on the pumpkin before placing the tacks. I added a small piece of ribbon as a leaf type garnish. It was a cute finishing touch.
