I have said it a thousand times, I LOVE the dollar tree! And this fall they are killing it!!! I am embarrassed to look through my receipts to see what I have spent over the last few weeks. One thing is for sure, these wire pumpkins are my hands down favorite!
As soon as I saw them I had a plan! I already had some white spray paint at home and some pumpkin picks that I had picked out for my dining room so all I needed was some white zip ties!
I sprayed both of them white. My home has a lot of neutrals so I knew I wanted white but you can paint them whatever color you like!
I put 2 zip ties on the top of the pumpkin and 2 on the bottom. That was enough to secure it. I made sure to trim them as close to the pumpkin as I could.
This is how it looked before I began the fun part…..
adding the pumpkins and greenery!
The metal is flexible so it is easy to get those little pumpkins in there. I used three picks and fastened them to the pumpkin with another zip tie. Floral wire or a pipe cleaner would work too!
Now it is just missing a bow!
I used some burlap ribbon I had from Hobby Lobby to make a bow and secured it with floral wire. The ribbon did a good job of hiding the zip ties too!
There you have it! Isn’t she pretty! I just love her with the tobacco basket behind her!
It would be a beautiful centerpiece on your dining room table as well. So many fun possibilities! Now, go run to your closest Dollar Tree and see what you can find!
