DIY Dollar Store Pumpkin Topiary For Under $5!!

When I decorate my mantel I try to change it up each year, partly because I get bored and also so you can see different ideas and options. I am always mindful of a budget and am thankful that I like to craft so I can make things inexpensively. Today I will show you how super simple it is to make a pumpkin topiary using dollar store foam pumpkins. Here is what I started with:
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy
Give each pumpkin two solid coats of paint. Next, take the foam brush and add the brown paint sparingly to give it some texture.
I made two of these to anchor the mantel and the pumpkins fit snugly in each container, so I didn’t even have to use hot glue. This is also great because if I want to use the containers for something else I can.

The milk glass container was the perfect size and height that I needed. My only cost for two topiaries was $6 for the pumpkins! You can’t beat that! I used a stick for the stem and it really makes a difference. The stem on the original pumpkin made it look kind of tacky.  For a tip on how to attach pumpkins together without adhesive check out the full blog post below.
