BOO Pumpkins

Are there any fans of inexpensive holiday decor out there??? I love to change out my decor for the holidays, some more than others. For some holidays or seasons I just change out my mantel decor. For other holidays I go all out. However, the cost can add up holiday after holiday. So I’m always looking for ways to create inexpensive holiday decor, like these BOO Pumpkins.
I grabbed three of these foam pumpkins that I got at the dollar store. I liked them orange but I decided to paint them a ghostly white. I also gave the stems a paint job with some brown spray paint. Using my Cricut and some cardstock I made the “BOO” letters and decoupaged them on.
Not only was it an inexpensive project, but it was easy too!
I love the BOO Pumpkins by themselves but they are so cute perched on top of some black candlesticks that I have. You can play with the words if you like and try words like “EEK” if that’s more your style. Or even adapt them for Thanksgiving.
