DIY Hobnail Milk Glass Pumpkin

This year I decided to try creating my own DIY hobnail milk glass pumpkin and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.  Read below to learn how you too can recreate this vintage inspired faux pumpkin to add to your fall decor.


  • Dollar Tree pop-dot adhesives
  • Dollar Tree pumpkin (or any pumpkin you desire)
  • Glossy white spray paint
  • Ribbon embellishment (optional)
  • Stylus (optional)
  • Cardboard box (optional)
  • Dollar Tree Wooden Tag (optional)
  • Dollar Tree Rub On Transfers (optional)


  • Take your spray paint and lightly spray your pumpkin using light coats.  Use a cardboard box to cut down on overspray. Spray outside or in a well-ventilated area.
  • Allow to dry for several hours or overnight.
  • Separate one side of your pop dot adhesives to expose the stickiness. These are two-sided sticky, but just reveal one side so that it’s easier to work with the dots. Taking the stylus, punch through each dot one at a time.
