How to Achieve High-End Look on a Budget: Cheap Modern Fall Decor Ideas | Fall Pumpkin Decor

Updated: Oct 29, 2023

Lets make some stylish elevated dollar store home decor! I’m beyond happy with how this fall decor turned out. I’m giving another sleek option for decorating the foam pumpkins from the dollar store. This upgraded decor from $1 looks chic and high end! I'm using the hyro-spray paint method to give the look of a marbleized effect. This process is simple and provides a show stopping look. Look below at this dollar store flip before and after!

Materials: (What I used)

Decorative Modern Bowl

Step 1: Grab a tin pail and stove top cover from the dollar store,

Step 2: Paint both items with white chalk paint to be used as the base color.

Step 3: Add a couple of base coats and allow the paint to dry.

Step 4: Fill a bowl with water and add different color spray paint to the water.

Step 5: Roll the exterior of the tin pail in the spray paint to cover the pail.

Step 6. Submerge the stove cover into the water filled bowl. Add spray paint to the water and lift up the cover slowly to make sure the inside of the item is coated.

Step 7: Allow time for the pail and the cover to completely dry . Use glue to adhere both pieces together.
