Budget-Friendly Fall Decorating: DIY Dollar Tree Silver Platter Pumpkin

You can turn so many things into looking like a pumpkin. So let me show you how to make your own Dollar Tree Silver Platter Pumpkin.

I have saw these platters in the store many times and was actually going to grab some to make a 3 Tiered Tray, which I have seen done and it’s so cute. They are great to decorate for the holidays.

But since fall is near, I figured I would just grab a few to make this cute pumpkin to add to my fall decor. I am also going to make one in black for Halloween.
