Y'all know I love a good deal, so I was excited when I found all of the supplies to make Dollar Tree Bandana Pumpkins. They turned out so cute, went together in just 15 minutes, and only cost $5.00 (for two)!

I am so excited to be sharing today as part of the Creative Crafts PUMPKIN Crafts Edition, so stop by to see all of the creative inspiration!

How do you create Dollar Tree Pumpkins for Fall?

.

STEP ONE

To begin the Dollar Tree Bandana Pumpkins, gather all supplies. Remove the tags from the foam pumpkins with scissors. With a craft knife, carefully cut out a square around the bright green foam pumpkin stems to create a hole. Use a sawing motion and light pressure. Set the foam stems aside because we will need these later. Don't make the hole any bigger than the stem or the bandana fabric will not stay around the pumpkin tightly.

STEP TWO

Remove the orange bandanas from their packaging and lay out flat on your work surface. Starting at the corner with the tag, insert the bandana into the hole at the top of the foam pumpkin. You could also use white, off-white, or black bandanas to match your home decor. If you cannot find orange bandanas, you could also dye white ones.

STEP THREE

Continue to pull and fold the bandana using the natural shape of the Dollar Tree pumpkin as your guide and poke the fabric into the hole with your finger. The kiddos could definitely help with this step!

STEP FOUR

Gather, fold, and insert the Dollar Tree bandana into the hole at the top of the foam pumpkin. Use a chopstick or pencil once the hole becomes filled with fabric. Repeat with the second foam pumpkin. These bandanas are slightly different, but I like that!

STEP FIVE

Remove the extra orange foam from the bottom of the stems.  It's a bonus that the stems already have a wooden pick in them. Basecoat the stems with Lamp Black acrylic paint, with a paintbrush and then apply a second coat, if necessary. Set aside to dry.

STEP SIX

Measure and cut two 12″ lengths of natural jute twine with scissors and tie them together to create a bow. Repeat to make a second bow. Insert stems into the tops of the foam pumpkins and secure them with a glue gun and glue sticks. To finish the Dollar Tree Bandana Pumpkins, glue the jute twine bows to the base of the stems.

Quick and Easy Dollar Tree Bandana Pumpkins

I hope you will use my Dollar Tree Bandana Pumpkins project as a jumping-off point to showcase YOUR Autumn decor. Dollar Tree foam pumpkins and bright orange bandanas create a fun country-inspired piece of home décor for the first day of Fall through to Thanksgiving. This quick and easy craft project goes together in just about 15 minutes. Change the colors of the bandanas to accent your Fall home decor. Adding the black stem and twine bow just ties everything together!
