DIY Dollar Store Fall Pumpkin Centerpiece

I recently decided to make some cute fall decor with the help of some metallic spray paint!


I went to my local dollar store and picked up 5 small orange & white foam pumpkins.


They had little sticks in them, so I just bent them back and forth and they pulled right out.
Since the red/yellow colors of the pumpkins didn't suit my needs, I reached for my trusty metallic silver spray paint and went to town! Using Rustoleum's Chrome Metallic Finish Spray Paint, I sprayed the tops and sides of each pumpkin and then let them dry for 10 minutes.



Once dry, I flipped them over and coated the underside.




After allowing them to completely dry for a full 30 minutes, I brought them inside and admired my new metallic pumpkins!


These pumpkins were $1 each for the big ones and then the 3 little ones were 3 for a $1. Can't beat that!







So, there ya have it: an elegant fall centerpiece!
