Makeover Your PumpkinThis fall, I am looking to switch some of my décor up. I started decorating for fall a few months ago, so by now I am ready to switch things up! I decided to swap out my traditional orange pumpkins for something new and rustic.

I was at my local Dollar Tree, and came across their huge assortment of faux foam pumpkins, so I picked up a few and decided to give them a complete transformation. I ended up going with 3 different looks, and might I say they added beautiful touches of fall décor to my home! Check out below to see how I created these 3 different looks!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Foam Pumpkins
  • Spray Paint or Acrylic Paint
  • Succulents
  • Glass Canning Jar
  • LED Tealights
  • Faux GreeneryMakeover Your Pumpkin
