How to Make a DIY Dimensional Pumpkin Sign

First, remove the cardboard backing from your picture frame and hot glue the front plastic piece onto the cardboard insert.

Then, paint the plastic piece with white paint. I used Waverly chalk paint for this. Allow the paint to dry, apply a coat of Mod Podge, then place the Dollar Tree tissue paper onto the surface.

Lay a piece of plastic saran wrap over the tissue paper and use a rolling pin to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles in the paper.

Once the Mod Podge is dry, go around the edges with a sanding sponge to remove the excess tissue paper from the plastic and cardboard.

Next, use your orange paints to paint each of the Dollar Tree oval wood plaques. I tried to match the color of my orange fabric, but was unsuccessful!

Then, I used my heat gun to quickly dry each of the plaques and hot glued them together to look like a dimensional pumpkin!

Mix a little bit of black paint with your orange paint and paint it around the edge of the top plaque to create a shadow effect.

Continue outlining the pumpkin with your grey-ish color to create a sort of distressed, aged finish on the pumpkin and add detail to the pumpkin.

For the stem, I used four Dollar Tree Tumbling Tower blocks that I stained with Apple Barrel Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint.

Once the blocks were dry, I hot glued them to the top of the pumpkin to create the stem. I just didn’t think a stick would be substantial enough for this project.

Make your DIY bow

Alright, I usually go step-by-step with instructions on how to make a bow for my projects, but I don’t really think I can do that this time.

I made this bow different than any bow I’ve ever made before, and you can see exactly how in either the quick Youtube tutorial or extended Facebook LIVE replay.

Once the bow was made, I made little wood bead tassels and attached them to the bow. Then, I hot glued the bow to the stem of my dimensional pumpkin.

Next, I cut stems from the Dollar Tree eucalyptus spray and hot glued them around the bow. I used Dollar Tree wired jute cord to create a sort of vine for the pumpkin.

Wrap the wired jute cord around a pencil and hot glue it at the base of the stem, behind the bow, and coming out the top of it.

Finally, put the decoupaged cardboard/plastic back into the picture frame and hot glue the Dollar Tree dimensional pumpkin to the decoupaged picture frame!
