Dollar Store Fall Centerpiece Makeover

Are you excited for Fall decorating?!

Grab some spray paint and let’s transform some inexpensive items into a fun centerpiece for your table this Fall that won’t break the bank. Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to spend a ton of money on seasonal décor since you’ll only be using it for a month or two.

Dollar Store and Goodwill Fall Decor

I recently picked up some dollar store pumpkins, leaf garlands, and two of those pumpkin candy pails from the thrift store for 69¢ each. My strategy was to spray paint all the items the same color for a more uniform and stylish look, and I’m LOVING the results!

Spray Painted Table Centerpiece

Supplies Needed:

  • Any Dollar Store, Thrift Store, and/or things you already own to update and re-purpose (plastic pumpkins and garland shown)
  • Spray Paint (I used and LOVE this Gold Metallic Spray Paint by Rust-Oleum)

Directions: Protect a well ventilated area with paper or some type of cover. Spray pumpkins, and garland with desired spray paint color. (The biggest tip with spray paint is to make sure you’re not spraying too close to the object, and take your time to do a few thinner coats of paint letting each dry in between. This will avoid runny paint.)

WARNING: Spray painting things is FUN and gets addicting.

After the paint is dry, have fun arranging and stacking pumpkins on your table. Fill the larger candy pails will plants or flowers if desired. (The plants pictured are just inexpensive greenery found at IKEA. I use them for every season!)

I’m enjoying my festive table and love the fact it didn’t cost a ton of money.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
