Dollar Store Pumpkin Candle Centerpiece


Dollar Store Pumpkins Candle Centerpiece

I am still busy doing fall projects...this one is using some fall pumpkins I had from last fall. I purchased these from the Dollar store.







they come with the floral on top, I removed the floral pick, to paint them and then hollow out the middle for placement for some tapered candles I also purchased at the dollar store. 

I painted them with some Martha Stewart Terra Cotta  finish

and then glazed them with some Martha Stewart glaze
 

after the were dry I added my candles and wrapped some jute around the candle to hang some wooden letters spelling out Fall I hot glued the pumpkins together


and then decorated with the  floral that came with them and added a few flowers






 My mantel is not done, but here is a start.

With the other pumpkins I left them the color they came.  I removed the floral from three of them and hot glued them on top of each other and added a burlap bow and a few more floral  pieces.
Just a reminder share it One More Time Party is going on Here.  Can't wait to see what you have been working on!  If you haven't seen last weeks features yet, you can also see them  there.  Something to really see.  Some really cute ideas and more Fall Ideas.

Have a great weekend.
