Create this darling pumpkin to hang on the wall or to display on a table using 3 silver trays from Dollar Tree!
Looking for a fun and easy fall craft? Then you’ll want to add this Dollar Tree silver tray pumpkin to your list! It’s so easy to make, and turns out so cute!
- 3 silver trays from Dollar Tree
- Hot glue
- Paint stick or popsicle sticks
- Paint – I used FolkArt paint in the color cinnamon
- Matte Mod Podge – If you want to get the rustic look like mine
- Cinnamon – If you want to get the rustic look like mine
- Accents – I used wired jute cord from Dollar Tree to make a stem. I had ribbon and the florals on hand.
Start by adding a coat of paint to each tray. I just painted the front. Since I am adding a rustic look with Mod Podge and cinnamon on top of my tray I only gave it one coat. If you do another color or not doing the Mod Podge and cinnamon on top you will need to add a few coats of paint.
Once the paint dried working on one tray at a time I added a light coat of Mod Podge, sprinkled it with cinnamon and then added a light coat of Mod Podge on top to seal it in.
Once they are all coated with the Mod Podge and cinnamon set them aside to dry. On a sunny, hot day put them in the sun and they’ll dry really quick. NOTE: You don’t need to put them in the sun. They’ll just take a bit longer to dry if not.
Once the trays are dry it’s time to assemble. I attached two of the trays together with hot glued then added a paint stick on the back.
Next I attached the remaining tray on top of the two with hot glue.
Now that the pumpkin is assembled I added my accents. I took some of my wired jute twine and attached it to the back with hot glue to make a stem. I then added a bow and some florals that I had on hand.
If you want to hang this you can add some twine to the back.
You could even add a monogram on the front too! So many ways to customize this!
And if you like this one, wait until you see the large one I made with the large platters! It’s over 2 feet wide! I used 3 large Dollar Tree platters for that one. You can watch how I make it also on this Craft with Me video!
