Farmhouse Pumpkin Door Decor
I’ve made two other farmhouse pumpkin projects with the same color scheme for Gloria for this season.
This Dollar Store Pumpkin Wall Art Makeover was an easy and budget friendly way to get a farmhouse look starting with a $1.00 item from Dollar Tree.
This farmhouse style pumpkin was a makeover for a pumpkin I found at my local Goodwill.
For this month’s thrift store challenge, I decided to make one more gray and white farmhouse pumpkin decor piece. I found this orange half pumpkin at Goodwill last year and used it with some Halloween decor.
For a new look, first the half pumpkin was painted with gray chalk paint and the stem got a coat of white chalk paint.
To have it match the other two farmhouse pumpkin projects I’ve made I wanted to add thin white lines. I tried using a tiny paint brush, but I couldn’t keep the paint from being too wide. I opted to use a white coloring pencil. It worked great.
After the lines were added, I used clear varnish to protect the paint.
The fun part is adding the embellishments. I pulled some greenery from some floral sprigs to use around the stem of the pumpkin.
They are hot glued in place at the base of the stem.
I tied a simple bow using lace ribbon and hot glued that to the center of the stems.
This is such a simple makeover, but I love how it turned out. It’s a reminder that when you spot something at a thrift store for a great price, buy it! It’s easy to use paint to turn it into a piece that you’ll love.
