dollar store crackle pumpkins

The dollar store has a lot of great fall decorations, but most of them don't scream "upscale." Jen from Tatertots & Jello is an amazing real-life (and blogworld) friend of mine, and she is known all over for her incredible taste. She is able to make anything look like a million bucks, which is what she did with these pumpkins she got at the dollar store. She gave them a designer look and spent only $5 to make this whole pretty vignette. I love that she chose colors that aren't typically associated with fall. [how to make crackle painted pumpkins]

Project Estimate:

  • Decorator pumpkins, $1 each
  • Acrylic paint, on hand
  • Crackle medium, on hand or about $2

Total: $1 and up
