“Boo” Pumpkins Just $10

Here's this week's easy Friday Fluff Up project!  I saw these over on Pinterest and thought they were so cute, however since I'd never used Modge Podge before, I was a little frightened about making them.  But they were so simple!  The Pumpkins were just $1.99 each at Aldi's, and I used this 40% Hobby Lobby coupon to get the Modge Podge for $4.19 (regularly $6.99, but I think I'll have enough Modge Podge to last me a lifetime!)


To make the pumpkins, I used my Cricut to cut out scrapbook paper and make the letters, and then just covered the pumpkins with Modge Podge to attach the letters.  (If you don't have a Cricut, Google “free letter templates” and hopefully you can find one that will work!)


You can tell my poor mums are struggling . . . I gotta find more time to water! 🙂


What about you?  Have you made any fun crafts this week?  Here are a few of my favorite ideas found this week on Pinterest (you can follow me under ppennypincher if you’d like to get started . . . I love that place!) 


If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section.  Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)

  1. So cute & simple! What is Aldi’s? Are they real pumpkins or fake?

    • They’re real, I would LOVE to do them on fake pumpkins and then stack them (so cute….) but these were so inexpensive, and I can turn them around for my family to carve 🙂

      Aldi’s is a grocery that just opened up that has really discounted staple prices – no coupons, but great deals on staples – milk, bread, produce & eggs! Thanks Kira!

  2. What about the “H” on your door? I love that, and our last name begins w/”H.” LOVE IT!! May be heading to Aldi’s also! 🙂

  3. Very cute – how fun that you used Mod Podge for the first time!
