One of my favorite things about Dollar Tree is that so many of the things they offer over the holidays can be either a blank canvas or a metaphoric paint brush. An empty wreath form, a little bit of mesh and tulle, and a few sprigs of flowers can suddenly become a beautiful centerpiece for your table or door, and it only took a little bit of time and creativity.
The other day I was there, I found these craft, foam pumpkins and knew they had the potential to become extra special. The problem was, I couldn’t decide how to approach them, so I took to Pinterest for inspiration. And down the Pinterest rabbit hole I went! But along the way, I found some really amazing and creative ideas that I had to share with you.
Let me know what you think! Which one is your favorite?
