Today Lifeovereasy is going to share the secret to a virtually instant, dirt-cheap pumpkin craft.

Seriously. 1 minute and you’re done. This may be the least complicated craft you have ever done.

Like all great cheap crafts, this one starts at the local dollar store. This is where you can find the secret ingredient and our latest crafting obsession:

Stick-on letters!

You can find them with the scrapbooking supplies. Nads got me hooked on these with her fun and stylish tray decorating projects, which you can see here and here. Everything looks better with lettering on it. Even pumpkins, as it turns out.

So here are the steps. You may have to take notes. Ready?

1. Get a pumpkin.
2. Stick on the letters.

That’s it, you’re done!

If you want to get a little fancy, add a black boa, also from the dollar store. The boa brings the grand total for this project up to $5. And adds about 7 seconds to the total time.

Easiest pumpkin decorating you have ever tried, right? Lots of time left to catch up on important things like blog reading.

  2. I read this and my first thought was, “Wait, the dollar store has stick on letters?!” To the Batmobile! Or, er… you know, the minivan.

      Thanks for dropping in Michele! Easy is high on my list these days. I actually made a quick one up today to add to a halloween package for Olivia. 45 seconds – I’m getting faster.

      Thanks so much for your comment! I’m really loving these stick on letters. Everything around here is getting labelled! If the kids sit around too much, I might just label them!

    So cute and simple and really effective as a decorating idea right now. I am missing this season because I am getting ready to move. So we have taken every decoration and picture and put them in storage for a time so we can get organized. Boring. I miss decorating but look forward to doing some in my new home! Maybe I will remember this great idea for next year. I love the BOO! So fun.

    • Dani says:

      Thanks Paula! I guess moving is more important thank Halloween decorating! Maybe you can do twice as much next year 😉 Good luck with the move.

  11. I LOVE this display!!! It looks so modern and chic =) Also, easy and cheap are great combos =)
