I love the pumpkins at the dollar store, why because they only cost a dollar! But, also because they are the right size and you can do so much with them. Check out my topiary.
I spray painted the black ones and added polka dots, the one in the middle I used that new spray paint made by Krylon called Glitter Blast. If you haven't used it be warned, when it says blast that is exactly what it does!
