Hey there everyone!
It’ that time of year where I will be hitting up the Dollar tree more so for their seasonal cheapo decor. Today I am sharing a Dollar tree Pumpkin Topiary.
I love the Dollar tree for all my seasonal decor craft ideas.
In fact, so much so, that this year once again,
It is Primp your pumpkin time.
September 15th come and link up your pumpkins and get inspired by the many you will see.
So the other day when I stopped in Dollar tree and I spied these cute foam pumpkins, I knew exactly what I had in mind.
I have done all kinds of pumpkin projects already this season.
my pumpkin vase with gesso and rit dye
and my Gesso and rit dye faux pumpkin
and now these.
I am not going to get into the thick of the tutorial with you on these, because by now,
you have seen me paint with gesso and combine rit dye.
You can click on any of the gesso projects above and I give the full deets on that.
Basically paint your pumpkin, or glass surface with gesso first and let partially dry.
When I say partially that is for about 30 minutes or so.
These are the three colors I used
and scarlet rose.
In fact scarlet rose was the same color I recently used for my
upcycled pallet shelf painted with rit dye
For each pumpkin,
I used a slightly different finishing coat.
For the green one, I simply sprinkled green glitter.
The evening blue one, I used Martha Stewart metallic
and for the Scarlet red, I used the gold leafing paint.
I have told you this technique or combination I should say, takes on a life of it’s own.
It is always different, and I love that!
And there you have a dollar tree pumpkin topiary.
I had the galvanized pot and I used faux leaves, twigs and berries to slightly embellish.
Moss too as you can see in between.
One more thing I forgot to mention is that I used a shish kabob skewer to stack them.
It poked right through the Styrofoam without a problem.
Thank you so much for visiting with me today.

Love it Debbie, the rit dye and gesso really makes a nice effect. I have a few pumpkins that I want to spruce up. I think I’ll give this a try.

These are simply stunning, Debbie.
You made those dollar store pumpkins look like a million bucks. I love how they sparkle! I need to get busy with my fall/Halloween decor, but it’s hard to do when it’s 90+ degrees and humid as all get out. I know you can relate; climates in NC and SC aren’t that different.
Debbie…I think this my ALL TIME favorite fall project…I just love it! 🙂
Love the topiary, Debbie! Dollar Tree is just the best for cute crafts like this!
Debbie you are simply amazing….now make me a topiary ok???
Yet, another FABULOUS creation with your Rit dye! Pinned it…you busy, busy bee!
This is so great. I love this. You are the Ritz dye queen. What a beautiful topiary.
Oh I want one of these topiaries so bad! This is awesome and the skewer idea was brilliant. I made my pumpkin today and it turned out so good! You would be proud of me…I used Mod Podge. lol.
Debbie that is soooooo cute!! I just love the colors and how unique it is. Well done friend! 🙂
i love this so cute and so clever better then anything i have seen in the stores 🙂
so cute, love those fun metallic colors!
So cute, love the idea!
Hi Debbie Dear! OH, so cute and you’re the best at creating cute stuff! Hope all is well at your house!
e a sweetie,
awww, this is so cute, Debbie.
I will TRY to make it to your pumpkin party but between UNpacking at the new house and PACKING at the old house and all we do IN BETWEEN, not sure I can make it.
I know it will be a fun party.
I think my primped entry from last year, Punkin Noggin, needs a primped up friend for this years party…….
Love your topiary Debbie! Pinned and tweeted it! great job.
You keep topping yourself with each new project. These are really cute!
that is really nice! Halloween is coming! 😀
Just when I think you’ve done it all, you do it again! This is adorable!!! I’m heading to dollar tree today! Have a fabulous weekend, my friend!~~Angela
I love this project and I just love that you do so many Dollar Tree projects. I am also a huge fan of Dollar Tree and see so many opportunities for projects from there. I also really like that you do dollar tree link parties. I’ll be looking for them in the future. Thanks for your ideas!
