Easy Polka Dot Pumpkin

I broke my own rule.

I went to Goodwill Northfield, two kids in tow, without a specific list or a plan.

Normally this wouldn’t be too much of a problem because I love browsing, digging and spending entirely way too much time at the thrift store. But those two kids – nope — not on their watch.

I was hoping to find something I could DIY into fall décor.  After 45 minutes of aimlessly browsing the housewares section, I had nothing…except a crying baby and a 3-year-old repeatedly asking “when we go to Chick-Fil-A?”

One last quick look and I spotted – GASP! – a white milk glass pedestal cake plate hiding underneath a stack of metal pans!

But hold the ovens. No cake would be pedestaled upon this here plate. It was fit for pedestaling a pumpkin. A polka dot pumpkin!





I picked up this striped shirt from the kid’s section to use for my colorful polka dots.





I traced a quarter and then cut out the dots using fabric scissors.




I then glued the dots to the pumpkin using fabric mod podge.





And there it is! An EASY, pedestaled polka dot pumpkin!




Happy Thrifting,
