Pumpkins revisited

Remember the not so adorable pumpkins from yesterday?

They look a lot cuter painted in silver right? Pumpkins like these run about $5 a piece at other stores like Wal-Mart and Target. I got these four for $1 a piece at the General Dollar and a can of spray paint for $1.12 at Wal-Mart.
Total cost for project: $5.12.

I saved a whopping $14 by making them myself rather than purchasing the set elsewhere. I used these great pumpkins as displays for the craft fair last month and am now using them for some fall decorations around the house.

Super simple to make and cost effective
