I’m on a roll, a pumpkin roll that is! I already shared with you the other day my dollar tree pumpkin wine glasses
I couldn’t resist picking up some pumpkins today while at the dollar tree. Last year I had so much fun making over some dollar tree pumpkins I wanted to do some more this year.
This is just the start. Not sure what else I can come up with, but I will keep thinking and sharing as I go this upcoming fall season.
All you need for this craft is a dollar tree plate, a small round pumpkin, craft paint or chalky paint, and some scrabble tiles. I always have chalky paint and all the supplies I need on hand to whip up a quick craft or two. In fact, all day today I sat at my kitchen table and crafted. It was nice and relaxing and has my mind off our son Alex who is gone to College now. It sure is strange not having him around. I can tell you, it’s pretty quiet and I know Jack is missing him around too!
I loved the color of the plate. I think aqua and orange are such a pretty combination. But I couldn’t keep my pumpkin orange. You can bet though when I display it, I will have some orange around it. I’m just getting started here!
First I cut my pumpkin in half with a sharp knife. I could have used my hot knife tool, that I used on my Rooster carved pumpkin a few years ago. I love that tool, but for such a small project it wasn’t necessary.
Like I said, this was a very small faux pumpkin and easy to cut with a knife. Just be careful:)After I gave the pumpkin two coats of chalky paint and let dry, I then hot glued it on the plate.
I tied a bow in some twine and hot glued it in the middle where the hole was from the original plastic stem. Then I used a stick for the stem and hot glued it on top.
I just think this is the cutest darn plate ever! So simple, and only a few minutes, and a few dollars.
Thanks for stopping over today.

Good Morning Debi~ Thank you for sharing your cute fall ideas. The pumpkin plate is adorable. The scrabble pieces add to the whimsy. Hugs
Thanks so much!
That’s really darn cute!!! Love how you incorporated it into your window shelves! I love all your ideas. The first email I check daily is your post! Thanks for sharing all your creativity. Have a terrific day.
p.s. I remember when my baby left off for college ?…you could hear a pin drop in our home and I kept waiting for her to come running thru the door yelling… mom I’m home, guess what???…… it does get better. Hang in there. ?
Thanks so much Kathleen! Yes, it is getting better. At least he is texting me here and there:)
I love your site. I had a Dollar Tree shopping binge last week. I made 2 gesso/rit dye pumpkin vases. One, I filled with dollar store bouquets of sunflowers and autumn leaves, the other will be used as a candle holder. I’m sure I will be doing a few more once I place the fall bouquet on my desk at work.
Awesome Melissa! I am so happy you tried the gesso technique. It is fun right?! Have a great day and enjoy the season to come.
Definitely! I’m already thinking of making Christmas ornament vases.
I know, ideas are swirling all around now! I love this time of year. It inspires me so much.
where is your gesso technique posted?
I love this pumpkin plate! Such an easy idea, and it would be ideal to personalize with those tiles! Thanks for some Saturday inspiration!
Thank you Judy!! Have a good one.
This is so cute…and it totally is perfect on your little shelf. I love blue and orange too. Can’t wait to see what else you come up with!
Thanks Ann! Who knows what will be next:)
Cute Debbie, when I spotted it on IG I thought it was a garlic bulb….so glad I stopped by and got it right:)
LOL! That does sort of look like it on IG.
Cute, Cute, Cute!
I love it Debbie….and in the words of your hubby, should I say, “pass the crackers please!”…..kidding aside, this is an adorable and super creative project!!!
LOL! He is such a stinker I tell you.
Awwww! That turned out really cute! I love Fall, too. Mother Nature puts on such a blazing glory of a display. I’m looking forward to see what you come up with next! Happy Weekend!
Thanks Kris! I agree and I love how you said that a blazing glory of display. I can’t wait!
Very, very cute ideas!!!
wow…that’s fantastic! I like your pumpkin plate a lot 🙂 Keep doing inspiring things like that. Your idea is completely new to me. I’ve never seen it before.
Sorry, I’m a bit behind here, but saw this on Pinterest and think it is so cute!
I love the hanging lamp where your plate is in the window. Do you know where you got that?
We found that at Lowes a few years ago. I do believe they still have it online.
