gold thumbtack pumpkin

We shared Madigan Made's cool thumbtack wreath a couple weeks ago, and she's done it again! These golden pumpkins are the result of dollar store pumpkins, several boxes of thumbtacks, and some excess free time. If you want to inject a little bling into your Fall decor, this could be the project for you. Perfect relaxing activity to do while you are stuck watching football! [how to make thumbtack pumpkins]

Project Estimate:

  • Foam pumpkin, $1
  • 3 boxes of thumbtacks, $3

Total: $4
