A while back, I shared a few farmhouse fall DIYs with you. Today, I am going share a super quick dollar store tutorial, and then show you how I put all those farmhouse-style pieces together to create a pretty fall farmhouse tray display. I am joining up with several other creative bloggers for a fall blog hop. Each of us designed a farmhouse tray look, and you can hop from one blog to the next to get tons of beautiful decorating inspiration. I turned a simple item from the dollar store into a pretty farmhouse corrugated metal pumpkin.
I found this cute corrugated metal pumpkin sign at my local Dollar Tree, but I didn’t have need of a hanging sign. I decided to turn each of the three metal pumpkins into a free-standing decor piece that I could tuck into various displays around my home this fall. Here’s how I did it:
- Using a needle-nosed pliers, I removed the chain from the three pumpkins.
- I peeled the burlap word decorations off of the front of the pumpkins
- Using a straight edge, I marked a straight line near the bottom of the back of each pumpkin shape.
- I used my needle-nosed pliers to carefully bend along that line.
- Finally, I carefully bent the pumpkin into a rounded shape, so that it could stand up on its own.
Now I have three corrugated metal pumpkins that look adorable tucked in with other fall decorations. I thought about adding a floral wire vine coil to the hole in the pumpkin stem, but this tray display already had enough going on.
Speaking of the display, I used my Farmhouse Wood Bead Tassels and Wooden Bead Garland to decorate the basket and the pumpkin in the arrangement.
I love the way the tassel colors tie into the Striped Ombre Wooden Tray that I painted a few years ago.
My farmhouse tray display also features a few dollar store foam pumpkins that I painted with chalky finish paint (the same paint I used on the tray), as well as dollar store fall leaf garlands and raffia, all tucked into the basket. I styled the tray itself with the corrugated metal pumpkin and a white Funkin topped with the bead garland and another tassel. What do you think? I don’t do a lot of farmhouse-style decorating. Did I do okay?

I love the way your mind works. Dollar store revamps are the best. You hit a home run with this idea… it’s smart and so pretty too!
So creative! Love how you assembled all the colors and textures to make an amazing display.
