Studded Pumpkin {$2 DIY}

The other day ago I went to the Dollar Tree for spider webs, while there I saw these poor little sad orange pumpkins screaming for attention.  I grabbed one, and thought, “Hmm glitter?”  Then LIGHT BULB, “ No! I have spray paint at home, and these thumbtacks {300 in a pack} on aisle 2 will make a perfect studded effect." BOOM!

This thumbtack pumpkin was super easy to make, and it only cost me $2!! My husband came home and said he loved the pumpkin! He then proceeded to ask me, "Where did you get it?"{what a sweetheart.. right}.  
My girls warmed my heart too.  They both said the pumpkin looked like it came from Home Goods they said the pumpkin looked like it would cost a lot of mula if you got it from Home Goods :) {Keepers Right?}

I’m obsessed I want to make more, I wish I had picked up extra $1 pumpkins.  I want to cover a whole pumpkin in thumbtacks, or add an initial, or try another color.

What do you think?  I’d love to know if you make one, they are easy & don’t take long at all>> seriously!
