transforming cheap dollar store pumpkinsHi

Not being a big fan of fall colours but still wanting to decorate I decided to forgo the orange, red, rust colours and focus on white and black with some gold and silver thrown in. I’m pretty pleased with what I was able to transform for little time, money and effort.

First up pumpkins. Of course pumpkins, can’t have Halloween with out pumpkins can we? Here are some pumpkins that I transformed using spray paint, twine, spiders, ribbon, beads and driftwood.
