I broke my own rule.
I went to Goodwill Northfield, two kids in tow, without a specific list or a plan.
Normally this wouldn’t be too much of a problem because I love browsing, digging and spending entirely way too much time at the thrift store. But those two kids – nope -- not on their watch.
I was hoping to find something I could DIY into Fall decor but after 45 minutes of aimlessly browsing the housewares section, I had nothing…except a crying baby and a 3 year old repeatedly asking “when we go to Chick-Fil-A?”
One last quick look and I spotted – GASP! – a white milk glass pedestal cake plate hiding underneath a stack of metal pans!
But hold the ovens. No cake would be pedestaled upon this here plate. It was fit for pedestaling a pumpkin. A polka dot pumpkin!
I picked up this striped shirt from the kid’s section to use for my colorful polka dots.
I traced a quarter and then cut out the dots using fabric scissors.
I then glued the dots to the pumpkin using fabric mod podge.
And there it is! An EASY, pedestaled polka dot pumpkin!
