Dollar Store Make Over

I went to the Dollar Tree last week to find some pumpkins that I could do a make over to. I will show you those tomorrow. But I was seeing all these cute signs and thought I could fix them up and make them pretty.

So, I went from this…….

Dollar Store Makeover, Gather Together Bundle

To this…….what do you think?

I covered up the chalk pumpkins on the bottom with my own pumpkins from Gather Together. I stamped the pumpkins in Cajun Craze onto Crumb Cake and then took my Aqua Painter and painted them in.

Then I did this to them:

The leaves I stamped Cajun Craze, Old Olive & Mango Melody onto Crumb Cake and die cut them. I took my Aqua Painter again and colored them. I didn’t use any extra ink, just the ink from the stamped image. And then I crumpled them up a bit. Placed the leaves under the stem and added the bow. For the bow I took the Burlap Ribbon and pulled each thread. Put them altogether, and tied a bow. I used hot glue to attach. For my final touch, I added some Gold Metallic Pearls.

So, would you put this up in your house? Don’t be shy, I really want to know. I used all Stampin’ Up! products to update, with the exception to hot glue.
