I love decorating for Halloween and I’ve got a new sofa table in my family room that’s just screaming for a DIY Pumpkin Centerpiece. I shopped at Family Dollar Stores® to save money using the new Smart Coupons on laundry essentials and all of the supplies I needed to create an affordable DIY Pumpkin Centerpiece by reusing an orange Tide PODS container. Smart Coupons are digital coupons that you can load to your account to use at Family Dollar® and they are helping customers save an average of $10 per order.

Step 3 – Print your list of clipped coupons so you can take your list to Family Dollar® and have all the coupon details handy.

step-4Step 4 – Shop at Family Dollar® for your favorite brands. I shopped the laundry aisle for Tide PODS and Downy Liquid Fabric Softener using my Smart Coupons to save a total of $2.50 on these laundry essentials.

step-5Step 5 – I needed to restock my laundry essentials with Tide PODS which I love for their convenience and no-mess. I needed Downy Liquid Fabric Softener/Enhancer to help my clothes feel soft and smell fresh.

step-6Step 6 – While I was shopping at Family Dollar®, I also picked up Fall decor to help me make my DIY Pumpkin Centerpiece including Fall placemats, Fall floral sprigs and LED tealights.

step-7Step 7 – In order to turn my Tide PODS container into a DIY Pumpkin Centerpiece, I had to remove the stickers on the container. I did this by soaking it in warm soapy water then using an adhesive remover and a plastic scraper (like one you use to clean stoneware with). I just kept squirting the sticker with the adhesive remover then scraping the sticker off with the plastic scraper. It took some time to get all the stickers off, but the end result was a beautiful orange container ready to be made into a pumpkin!

step-8Step 8 – I drew the outline of a pumpkin face using a black permanent marker. Remember that your pumpkin face doesn’t have to be perfect!

step-9Step 9 – I colored in the outline with a black permanent marker to get my pumpkin face.

step-10Step 10 – I put LED tealights inside the pumpkin so that we can illuminate it at night.

step-11Step 11 – Lay out your Fall placemats to be the base of your centerpiece by overlapping them slightly. I used placemats instead of a table runner because it’s easy to adjust the length and they are multi-purpose.

step-12Step 12 – Place an additional placemat in the center to set the pumpkin on top of if you’d like. I liked this coppery leaf placemat that I found at Family Dollar®.

step-13Step 13 – Place pumpkin on top of the center of the placemats.

step-14Step 14 – Surround pumpkin with Fall floral sprigs. I love the contrast that these sunflowers provide to my DIY Pumpkin Centerpiece.

After Halloween I plan on using it to store some of my small Halloween decor.

I would love for you to pin my DIY Pumpkin Centerpiece so you can refer to it later when you make one for your home!

This is so creative! I often wonder what to do with the empty containers – now I know! I can’t wait to sign up for Smart Coupons – they’re perfect for me as I often forget my coupons at home! #client

To remove those labels easier, rub on any vegetable oil and let it set for 30-45 mins. then just peel off. If not soft enough repeat until all is removed.

Very imaginative! Can’t wait to try it. FYI, it’s easy to remove the sticker from the Tide pod container using WD-40. Just spray, rub slightly, and wipe clean.
