Got a question about this project?

  • Cocolombardo

    How did you cut the "stems" off-what type of tool did you use? and what did you use a base in the planter? thanks!

      I used wire cutters. I used styrofoam for the bottom pumpkin.

    To keep them tipping over, I added pebbles to each and to the bottom planter.I really liked the look of the decoration. But now I have to redo, due to the sun bleaching and windblowing, minus a few leaves and berries......

    I was going to use real pumpkins and use a rebar to stack them. My question is what can I do to make the pumpkins last through Thanksgiving?

    I don't think they will make it. I am afraid they will mold. Sorry.
