Do you ever wonder what to do with plastic pumpkin buckets? Here are 6 ways I have given plastic pumpkins a makeover.
What a fun way to display artificial pumpkins. No need to use real pumpkins when you can use dollar store pumpkins from last year to create these fun DIYs. Have fun with these easy 6 plastic pumpkin bucket crafts.
Pumpkin #1 –
I sprayed the fake pumpkin 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 acrylic paint 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 used hot glue to glue on 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. You could use white spray paint as well.
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.
