A Quick and Easy way to turn a Dollar Store wood cut out into a Plaid Pumpkin.
I found this cute inexpensive wood pumpkin at Dollar Tree* and thought it would make a cute
little plaid pumpkin to add to my Fall decorations. It was super simple to make.
Here’s what I used: (*affiliate links)
- Wood Pumpkin
- Plaid Scrapbook Paper
- Xyron Creative Station*
- OLFA 6″x8″ Cutting Mat*
- X-Acto Craft Knife*
- Fine Grit Sandpaper*or Extra Fine Grit Sanding Sponge*
- Black Acrylic Paint and Paint Brush
- Black Tombow Marker

- Paint the base of the pumpkin with black acrylic paint.
- Cut a piece of plaid paper slightly larger than the pumpkin shape.
- Insert the paper design side up into the Xyron Creative Station*. Crank the handle to run the paper through the machine. The Xyron Creative Station* adds complete adhesive covering to the back of the paper. (You could also use a glue stick or liquid glue adhesive.)
- Adhere the paper onto the front of the pumpkin.
- Cut the excess paper from the inside and outside of the pumpkin using a craft knife and cutting mat.
- Use a sanding block or extra-fine sandpaper to smooth the edges of the cut paper.
- Use a black or dark gray marker to add color to the edges of the paper to cover the white core.
Add to your Seasonal Décor and Enjoy!
Dollar Tree Tip…I have come to the conclusion when it comes to Dollar Tree Holiday items that you need to buy it as soon as you see it. (you never know if it’ll be there the next time)
