While I was at Dollar Tree looking through the store for something to create a fall looking pumpkin, I came across this wooden tag! The tag had almost the ideal shape to make my pumpkin with. I couldn’t wait to get home and put my ideas to work and see how it turned out! I hope you like it and give this Dollar Tree Tag Pumpkin a shot too!
Dollar Tree Wooden Tag
Napkin – My Shop
Antique White Paint
Leaf Cutout – Dollar Tree
First, I used Antique Wax around the outer edge of the wooden tag.
Second, I used the sparkling to fill in the hole from the tag hanger. Let dry.
Third, after the spackle was dry, I used the Antique White paint to cover the front and back of the wooden tag.
Fourth, once the paint dried, I used Mod Podge to glue on the fall napkin. I did this on the front and back of the wooden tag. Then I sanded off the excess napkin and Mod Podged back over the napkin. When that was dry, I used Antique wax again over the edge and over the napkin.
Fifth, I hot glued on the wooden stem and the excelsior.
Sixth, I used raffia and tied a bow around the stem. I then hot glued a button to the center of the bow.
Finally, I hot glued the leaf cut out on the top.
Here is the finished project, which I think ended up better than I imagined! Pumpkins, changing leaves and that fall feel are really fun to create with, and this Dollar Tree Tag Pumpkin was a blast to make! I hope you give it a try and make one too
