I realize that painting plastic pumpkins is not a new and exciting idea
but this turned out pretty cute
and took about 5 minutes so I thought I would share.
We had an event at church and I wanted some Fall-ish decor
but I wanted something a little different and fun.
And very inexpensive.
I bought plastic pumpkins for a dollar.
(I saw them at the thrift store today for a quarter
so you could really create these for a bargain.)
I used my favorite gold spray paint to change their look from plastic orange to classy gold.
It is amazing what gold spray paint can do!
Make it a snug fit.
I pushed the pumpkins on to the stake and used a little bit of black tape to wrap around the stake right under the pumpkin so it would not slide down. I used a 1/2 inch wide strip so it blends in with the bamboo markings.
Then I went to Lowe's near the house and bought all the clearance mums they had!
I paid a dollar per mum so this was a pretty big look for not much money.
Everyone kept talking about how fun they were and because they were so inexpensive we put them everywhere and then I sent them home with the volunteers at the end of the event!
Everyone had a big smile on their face!
