Dollar Tree Foam Pumpkin DIY Makeover
The Dollar Tree store is my new favorite “go-to spot” for fall DIY craft inspiration this year… have you seen the bright orange foam pumpkins there?! That’s exactly what I am using for my fall-themed makeover craft today!

Step-by-Step Guide for Dollar Tree Foam Pumpkin DIY Makeover
Remove the stem and spray paint the pumpkin white.
This helps prevent the bright orange color from showing through your book pages later.
Using several pages from a thrift store book, tear a stack of book page pieces.
My experience is that slightly smaller pieces work better at fitting the curves of the pumpkin, as opposed to larger pieces.
Using a paint brush, start applying the mod podge to the surface of your pumpkin, in small areas at a time. Then, place your page pieces on the pumpkin, one at a time and brush a layer of mod podge over the pieces to adhere them to the pumpkin.
Apply a circle of hot glue around the top (stem area) of the pumpkin and place a small bundle of Spanish moss for the stem to be placed into.
In the bed of Spanish moss, place your “yard stick” down into the foam. It may help to stab the pumpkin slightly with your scissors to enlarge the opening for easier placement of the stick.
That’s it! Now you have a fall farmhouse white pumpkin that cost less than just a few dollars! These fall foam pumpkin forms are perfect for all types of makeovers… and they make the perfect addition to a table centerpiece, basket, bucket, coffee table vignette, shelf, or any fall themed display in your home decor
