10 Minute Goodwill Pumpkin Makeover

10 Minute Goodwill Pumpkin Makeover – I love decorating for the seasons but it can get expensive. Every time I go to Goodwill, garage sales or any thrift store, I keep an eye out for seasonal decor. Most everything can be refreshed with paint and I love a challenge! This little pumpkin was pretty bare, it was filled with florist foam and little pieces of green moss and that’s it.

This month for our 10 Minute Decor Ideas –  I am sharing this pumpkin makeover:

You will need:

  1. Faux pumpkin – new or thrifted
  2. 3 fall mums
  3. bunch of fall leaves
  4. corn husk
  5. feathers
  6. Craft or Chalk based paint
  7. floral foam
  8. Utility knife

If you’re lucky like me you found a thrifted pumpkin and it was cut and had floral foam already in it. If you had to buy one, just cut the top off with a utility knife, stuff with floral foam and paint. I used a chalk based paint, it dries fast! I added the 3 mums first and filled in with a lot of leaves. I just stuck the pieces in to the foam, you could use floral pins if needed. The corn husk are added to the left of the mums in a fan shape. For interest, I draped a few leaves under the mums. To finish, I placed 2 feathers behind the mums. Just play around with your accent pieces, until you’re happy with the look.

Love adding feathers to fall decor

Use your imagination for this project, you can paint your pumpkin any color. I thought about painting this one aqua. There are so many pretty faux florals, it would be so easy to match your home decor.

The feathers are the crowning touch. I bought these last year at the Country Living fair.
