Excited for fall decorating? Try this easy pumpkin centerpiece Dollar Tree DIY! 🎃

I absolutely love decorating for all the different seasons, but it doesn’t always make sense to spend a ton of money on seasonal decor since I only use it for a couple of months out of the year.

If you feel the same, let’s grab some spray paint and transform a few inexpensive Dollar Tree items into a chic DIY pumpkin centerpiece for your Fall table! This is a really fun DIY Halloween decor project that will give those Dollar Tree pumpkins a shimmery makeover without breaking the bank.

I picked up some pumpkins and leaf garlands from Dollar Tree, and two of those pumpkin candy pails from the thrift store for just 69¢ each (you can also buy them on Amazon). You could also check out the assortment of pails at Dollar Tree too! My strategy was to spray paint all of the items the same color for a more uniform and stylish look – and I’m LOVING the results!

WARNING: Spray painting things is FUN and gets addicting, especially with this DIY Halloween decor project!

Spray Painted Pumpkin Centerpiece


  • Any fall items from the Dollar Tree or thrift stores (plastic pumpkins and garland shown)

  • Metallic spray paint


Protect a well-ventilated area with paper, a drop cloth, or some type of covering you don’t mind getting paint on.


Spray paint pumpkins and garlands with the desired paint color. To avoid runny paint, make sure you’re not spraying too close to the object, and take your time to do a few thinner coats of paint, allowing it to dry in between each one.


Arrange the painted pieces in the center of a table or on a mantle for chic fall decor that only costs a couple of dollars to make. That’s it!

A couple of tips when spray painting Dollar Tree pumpkins:

  • I love looking for bargains at dollar stores and thrift stores, too, but you can save even more money by using inexpensive fall decor that you already own. This is such a fun and easy way to update and re-purpose any old decor you’ve grown tired of seeing year after year!
  • If you want to take decorating to the next level, Dollar Tree sells an assortment of jewels that you can add to the sides as some of our readers have mentioned!

No one will believe these DIY Halloween decor pieces are from Dollar Tree!

After the paint is dry, have fun arranging and stacking your pumpkins on a table. Fill the larger candy pails will plants or flowers if desired. The plants pictured above are just inexpensive greenery found at IKEA, and I use them every season!

I’m really enjoying my festive table, and I love the fact that it didn’t cost a ton of money. I hope you enjoy the results of this fun DIY, too!
