Last year, I really wanted to share how I transform Dollar Tree fall decor into masterpieces for cheap, that I display around my home during the holidays, but I just didn’t get around to it #momlifeoflittles.
This year, I’m starting early and showing you how I transform my home into a fall oasis with these Dollar Tree pumpkins.
Transform Dollar Tree Foam Pumpkins
Once at the Dollar Tree, I grabbed a handful of their inexpensive $1 Pumpkins. They actually had a lot of foam pumpkins to choose from this year. However, the orange carvable pumpkins I was after, weren’t in stock yet. They are the best for painting.
Instead, I grabbed a few foam pumpkins covered in this shiny plastic coating and headed for home.

Prepare Your Dollar Tree Pumpkins
Once you have your Dollar Store pumpkins in hand, remove their stems, flowers, or whatever decor is glued to them.
A few of the pumpkins I grabbed had flowers and such glued to them. I plan to cut off the top of those foam pumpkins and use sticks for their stems because they came stemless.

Begin Painting Your Foam Pumpkin
I chose to paint the majority of my pumpkins white and a few light blues. You can use whatever color paints you have on hand on these cheap artificial pumpkins.
I have tons of leftover paint, so I used some white chalk paint and blue acrylic paint.
If you don’t have paint on hand, Dollar Tree has a craft section with a lot of paint choices. Every Dollar Tree does have different supplies on hand. If you don’t find something at one Dollar Tree, check another.
I found that sticking a toothpick into the bottom of the pumpkin while painting worked really well. Trying to hold a pumpkin and paint it at the same time doesn’t work too well.
Paint all of your pumpkins the color of your choice and then set them on cardboard to dry.
Tip: Don’t set the pumpkin on paper to dry, they will stick.
Add The Fake Pumpkin Stems
Once your artificial pumpkin has dried it’s time to get creative. You can use the stems that came with your pumpkin or use a small stick as the stem. Feel free to add leaves or any other decor you prefer.
