I just love the Dollar Tree! There are so many great things you can use to decorate your home with, you just need a little imagination. This adorable front porch sitter was created using an old board from a pallet, and a Halloween Decoration from the Dollar Tree. Check out how I did it!
Here's what you'll need:
1-Pallet board cut in two pieces (approx 24" each)
2-pieces of scrap wood to secure your pallet boards together
1-Three pumpkin Halloween Decoration from the Dollar Tree
1-Yarn, the color of your choice (I used orange)
1-Burlap Ribbon for stem
1-Raffia to decorate each pumpkin and your larger bow
1-Green garland from Walmart. (or similar)
1-small buffalo check ribbon with wire edge (or similar)
1-large buffalo check ribbon with wire edge (or similar)
Using this Halloween Decoration from the Dollar Tree to start, I unwrapped the frillies off of it and discarded them. I then took the frame of one, and some yarn and tied one end of the yarn at the bottom, then I began to wrap the pumpkin frame.
Slowly I wrapped it from side to side to the top of the pumpkin, excluding the stem. I then secured the edges and the end piece with some hot glue.
I wrapped the stem with some burlap ribbon and secured it with hot glue. I then created a bow out of some wire edge buffalo check ribbon.
When the bow was made I created a raffia bow out of some raffia and cut the edges. I placed the raffia bow down on the pumpkin and hot glued in place. I then put the little buffalo check bow on top of the raffia and hot glued in place. I repeated this process for the other two pumpkins.
I created a larger bow for the bottom of the porch sitter out of a wider buffalo check ribbon, some green garland, and some raffia.
When done, we cute one slat from an old pallet and then cut it in half. We secured the two pieces of wood together, side by side, with some scrap wood pieces on the backside. I then used hot glue and E600 together to secure the pumpkins and the larger bow to the boards, and that's it!
This project was cost-effective, easy, and turned out great! Let us know if you try to make one too!
