Pumpkin Topiary DIY

I saw this cute pumpkin topiary on pinterest and decided I needed one like it! Mine is a bit different, but I am having fun doing crafty projects from the comfort of my bed rested couch. 
Photobucket
I used 2 medium foam pumpkins, 1 small foam pumpkin, 1 terracotta pot, scrapbook paper, spray paint, hot glue and mod podge. 

If you're preggo, enlist the hubs to spray paint the pot and cardboard letters spelling out FALL. (If I did this again, I'd use foam to cut out the letters...cleaner edges.) 
Photobucket
Trace flipped letters onto the back of the scrapbook paper and cut out with an exacto knife. Attach to the letters with mod podge.
Photobucket
Cut a hole the size of the stems in the bottom of the small pumpkin and 1 medium one.
Photobucket
Stack the pumpkins attaching with hot glue around the stems.
Photobucket
Attach the letters, one to each pumpkin and one on the pot using hot glue.
Photobucket
And you're done! I put it on the entryway table for the time being, but I need to get a plant holder so it can sit up higher on the front porch. 

Happy Fall Y'all!

  1. LOVE this! Thanks for sharing...I'm totally lacking inspiration for fall decor this year. I like your "fall" better than the "boo"-it lasts longer in the season!
