The Look for Less: Grand In Road Halloween Pumpkins

I love, especially their holiday décor. I mean LOVE it. Like I want everything on their pages – but I can’t afford it. Thankfully, sometimes I see something on there that is so outrageously priced, I can easily get the look for less.

Like this. I am head over heels with these decorative Halloween pumpkins in their Fall décor collection.

Not so in love with the $39 price each. Yeah, not happening for this blogger on a budget.

This one is my lovie.

So here’s my version of a black and gold decorative Halloween pumpkin for a fraction of the price. In fact, I made it for less than $15.

Here’s what you need:

  • Chalkboard pumpkin – available at Michael’s. Was 40% off when I got it. This is the same 9″ size as the Grand In Road pumpkin.
  • Metallic gold paint – also available at Michael’s. I had mine leftover already from a previous project.
  • Gold vinyl. I ordered mine from Expressions Vinyl. It arrived in 3 days and was only $1.99 for a 12” x 24” a sheet (other sizes available).

Here’s what you do:

  1. Paint the stem of your pumpkin gold.
  2. Cut you circles from the vinyl. I used my silhouette, but you could easily use a paper punch. These circles are just under 1″ each and I used 41 of them.
  3. Stick the vinyl to the pumpkin.

Seriously. Could it be any easier for less than half the cost? Okay, so theirs weighs 3 pounds and mine barely one pound, but for the price, I’m totally happy with it.

Tune in later this week. I’ll have another Fall decorating look for less for you.


  1. Why are you doing this to me! I have NOT allowed myself to go anywhere near Michael’s. Halloween decor is my weakness.

    • Muahahahahahahahahaha. I’ll be making more. You can live vicariously through me.
