Try this easy $ 10 DIY Dollar Store Daisy Pumpkin made from a sculptable foam pumpkin! All you need is a handful of supplies from your local dollar store and 30 minutes to make it.
Autumn is almost here! I just took a big trip home Dollar tree for fall and halloween craft supplies last week, so there will be plenty of fall and halloween crafts in dollar stores in the coming weeks!
It was a fun and easy DIY project. It took less than 30 minutes. You can listen to music or watch TV while you work and time will pass!
This Dollar Store Daisy Pumpkin is very versatile because you can use any color combination or any type of dollar store flowers you want. For example, you can make flowers white at the top, orange in the middle, and yellow at the bottom for a pumpkin or sweet corn flower ombre effect by choosing flowers that are lighter for the top and darker for the bottom (or vice versa). .
Below are step-by-step instructions and a list of supplies, but here’s a summary of what you need and a quick tutorial:
satchel foam pumpkin, daisies, cinnamon sticks and 2 artificial maple leaves. All you have to do is punch the flower stems through the foam pumpkin until it is covered with daisies. Then push in the cinnamon sticks and glue the maple leaves. It’s a very simple fall craft that anyone can do!

Remove the green stem from the foam pumpkin.
Glue two cinnamon sticks together.
Push the cinnamon sticks to where the green stem was and glue them in place.
Remove the flowers from any bushes you have purchased.
Starting at the top, push the flowers into the foam pumpkin. When they are full you will hear or feel some noise and the rod will not show at all.NOTE: for me, the flowers stayed in place without the need to use a glue gun on the rods before inserting them, but you can do this if you want (it would take longer).Tip: I alternated rows of orange and yellow flowers and put the small flowers at the top and the larger flowers at the bottom, but you can do it however you like!
Continue to push the flowers around the pumpkin until the pumpkin is covered with flowers.
Then glue two faux fall leaves on either side of the cinnamon stick stem. Alternatively, you can use two of the leaves from your daisies instead.
