How to Make a Dollar Tree Pizza Pan DIY Distressed Pumpkin Decor
Step one of making this adorable Dollar Tree pizza pan DIY is to sand the front of the pizza pan with either a sanding sponge or a piece of sandpaper.
This is going to help create a texture on the metal for the paint to cling to. Dust off the pan and then paint it with Waverly Ink Chalk Paint.
Once you’ve coated the front of the pizza pan, allow the black paint to dry completely. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process.
Then, lightly sand over the paint and use a brush to remove any paint dust from the pizza pan.
How to decoupage a napkin on wood
Next, I worked on decoupaging the orange and black buffalo check napkin onto the Dollar Tree planked wooden pumpkin.
First, you need to separate the napkin plies and isolate the ply with the pattern. Then, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the surface of the planked pumpkin and place the napkin onto it.
Lay a piece of plastic saran wrap over top the napkin and use a rolling pin to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles in the napkin.
Allow the Mod Podge to dry (I used my heat gun again), then remove the excess napkin from around the pumpkin. I used a sanding sponge to tear off the excess napkin.
Go between the planks of the pumpkin with a piece of sandpaper to remove the napkin from between each plank.
Lightly go over the surface of the pumpkin with a sanding sponge to distress the napkin. Then, pain the stem of the pumpkin with black paint and distress it as well.
Bring it all together!
Now, hot glue the wood bead garland around the inner edge of the Dollar Tree pizza pan. If you don’t have the wood bead garlands from Dollar Tree, you can make your own with beads from amazon and some jute twine.
Then, hot glue the nautical rope around the outer edge of the pizza pan. Tie your raffia into the shape of a bow, cut a strip of your burlap and fold it into the shape of a bow tie, and hot glue it together.
Hot glue the burlap bow at the base of the pumpkin stem and hot glue the raffia bow overtop the burlap bow. Then, hot glue a piece of the eucalyptus behind the burlap bow.
Now, hot glue the pumpkin to the center of the Dollar Tree pizza pan. Finally, flip the pizza pan over and hot glue the wood bead garland ends to the back of the pan to create the hanger!
Hot glue a little piece of burlap, ribbon, or fabric over the twine on the back of the pan to really secure the hanger to the pan.
