Dollar Store Illuminated Twine Pumpkin

2037-12-04 Illuminated String Pumpkin 066a[13]

Grapevine pumpkins have become staples when it comes to fall décor. They are quite lovely with their natural look and pretty twinkling lights, but boy are they pricey!  Lisa from Recaptured Charm knew they couldn’t cost nearly as much to make as their price tags might indicate and proved it by creating her own with dollar store materials. Lisa loves the pretty shadow her illuminated pumpkin casts on the wall. It’s the perfect fall décor to give you the warm tingles inside!

When Mandy from We Three Mothers wanted The Very Hungry Caterpillar artwork for her son’s bedroom but couldn’t afford the price tag, she teamed up with her son to DIY for less. They simply purchased a canvas and some tissue paper and then spent the morning cutting and gluing together. Kids are generally pretty oblivious to wall décor, but you know Mandy’s son will always love this special art he made with his mommy!

After her daughter’s wedding, Jeanie from Create and Babble found herself with several clear glass vases on hand. She decided it was time she jumped on the mercury glass train and grabbed her can of Looking Glass spray paint. Now we’ve all seen this done a time or two, but I love how Jeanie took it a step further by creating a pattern on the glass with glue. You’ll have to pop over to her site to see exactly how she did it!
