I had some plastic pumpkin buckets and I came up with 5 different ways to make them over.
Pumpkin #1 –
I sprayed it with black spray paint and let it dry.
I then sprayed it with Rustoleum Stone spray paint and let that dry.
I placed a witch hat on it and put it on display. I think it looks like faux concrete.
Pumpkin #2 –
I sprayed this pumpkin with Rustoleum Copper spray paint and let that dry.
I added a mum plant inside and set him on the front porch for display.
Pumpkin #3 –
I painted this pumpkin with Folk Art Chalkboard paint and let it dry.
I used it to serve cold apple cider. You could use the back side of him and write words with chalk of what you’re serving.
Pumpkin #4 –
I hot glued Dollar Tree burlap ribbon on the pumpkin bucket. Gluing both the bottom and the top and overlapping the ribbon.
I used to to create an apple display.
Alternatively, you could rubber band the extra ribbon on top, closing the top of the bucket and creating a stem. I also wrapped a little ribbon around the stem, added some twine, and hot glued on a couple fake leaves.
Pumpkin #5 –
I painted Mod Podge onto the bucket and added strips of plaid fabric.
I then put another coat of Mod Podge over the top of all the fabric. I let this dry completely.
I gathered the extra fabric on top and used a rubber band to close the top, and left the excess fabric hanging loosely. I took another piece of the fabric and rolled it up and hot glued it into place as a stem. I found some red ribbon and let that dangle as the vines.
I painted the pumpkin with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Sheepskin and let dry completely.
I hot glued rhinestones onto the pumpkin.
I added a hat and you can display the pumpkin rhinestone side forward or …
with the face side forward.
