How to make a studded pumpkin for Halloween

As a Walmart Mom, I’ve been decorating my home for Halloween using products from Walmart for years now.  I prefer to get our Halloween decorations from Walmart because I know that they will be within our budget.  Of course, it isn’t really Halloween without a pumpkin somewhere in our decorations.  I found these adorable white pumpkins, $3.88, at my local Walmart store and knew that I wanted to do something to incorporate them into our Halloween Party Table Centerpiece.  Because the pumpkin is beautiful on it’s own, I kept it simple by just simply added a few “studs” in a random pattern around the top of the pumpkin.  The “studs” are just silver thumbtacks.  You can grab a 200 count package at Walmart for just $1.88 which is more than enough to decorate a small pumpkin with.

To create the focal point of our table, I picked up a witch’ cauldron from Walmart for $6.97.  Then I headed to the floral department of my local store to find the perfect flowers.  The deep purple of these Dahlia Bushes perfectly compliment our Halloween theme.  I picked up three bunches for $3 each.  I cut all of the flower stems off of the bunch to make it easier to arrange them in our cauldron.  To keep the flowers in place, I also picked up a 4.8 in. square floral foam cube for $2.97.  I placed the foam cube inside of the cauldron and began sticking the stems of the silk dahlia flowers into it.  I arranged and placed the flowers at varying heights so that the end result is dome shaped.  After all of the flowers were placed I felt like this floral arrangement needed a contrast in color so I picked up a package of striped straws for $.97 and placed them randomly throughout the flowers.  To finish our floral arrangement, I took a spool of glittered black organza, $2.97, and tucked it underneath the flowers so that no floral foam could be seen.

I arranged the table by first laying a simple black tablecloth by Mainstays, $9.84, onto our table.  Since our table has a center lazy susan, I took a piece of grey creepy fabric, $2.97, to cover it.  The grey creepy fabric gives the table centerpiece a cool, eery look almost like smoke billowing out from under the cauldron.  I arranged our floral cauldron and studded pumpkin with a skull, $3.97, to finish the look.

    What an easy way to decorate a pumpkin – tacks! I love it. i was going to carve a pumpkin this year, but maybe I need to take a less messier approach.

    I love this arrangement. I would have never thought to put tacks in pumpkins that is so creative. I just want to say that your site is beautiful.
