3 DIY Dollar Store Halloween Pumpkin Ideas

Hey there! In this post, you're going to learn how to make these three pumpkins for Halloween using Dollar Tree pumpkins. You'll learn how to make candy corn pumpkin, a jack o lantern pumpkin, and a pumpkin with flowers and spiders on it.

All of these pumpkins are really easy to make. My favorite is the one with spiders and flowers on it. Which pumpkin is your favorite.

You can watch the video here:

Flower & Spider Pumpkin

You'll need:
foam pumpkin
acrylic paint
hot glue

1. Paint the pumpkin with one or more coats of white or another color of paint.

2. Take out the stem and paint it brown and while the stem is drying you can slightly stick it into the pumpkin so it can dry.

3. When the pumpkin and stem are dry you can stick the stem in the pumpkin

4. Layout everything on or around your pumpkin so you have an idea of how you want the pumpkin to look like

5. Glue on your flowers and spiders with hot glue decorate the pumpkin in the way you would like

I glued on two glitter spiders. One was glued on the top and other one was glued on the side. I also glued on three flowers and I also glued on three of these branches that were on the stems of the flowers.

When you have everything glued on you're all done. I love how this pumpkin turned out. It looks really pretty.

Candy Corn Pumpkin

Candy Corn Pumpkin

You'll need:
foam pumpkin
white, brown and yellow acrylic paint

1. Draw on a stripe on the middle of the pumpkin. The size of the stripe on my pumpkin is about 2 inches but you can make it smaller if you want.

2. Paint the top of the pumpkin white.

3. When the top is dry you can paint the bottom yellow

4. Take the stem out of the pumpkin and paint it brown or another color. and just like the first pumpkin you can slightly stick the stem into the pumpkin so it can dry.

5. When both the stem and the pumpkin are dry you want to put the stem in the pumpkin and then you're all done

Jack O Lantern Pumpkin

You'll need:

1. Draw a jack o lantern face on the pumpkin with a pencil. You can use a ruler to help you measure the stripe.

2. Paint the face in

3. Take some flowers and lay them out so you have an idea of how you want your pumpkin to look like.

4. Glue on the flowers with hot glue. I glued on five flowers and I also added few of these stems that came with these flowers.

5. After you're done gluing on the flowers you can adjust the flower petals so you can can see the stem.
