Dollar Store Pumpkin Topiary

7 Materials
1 Hour

I love this season, and love decorating for both Fall and Halloween! For less than $5 I made this great pumpkin topiary, and you can make one too! Check out how I did it-

I picked up 3 dollar store pumpkins (foam) and some Old Village paint (I used Ocre 2110 Sauge Verte 2107 and Creme 2109)

First paint each pumpkin in the color that you want, and let them dry.

I will also use some dollar store leaves, spanish moss, and some fabric.

Using a wooden skewer, I pushed the first two pumpkins into the tin. The third pumpkin will nedd a bit of extra glue to stay in place.

Then I glued some moss around the top of my tin.

And glued the bottom pumpkin to the moss.

I then poked a stem through the top, and added some moss, leaves, and fabric scraps for some pretty fall detail.

    Could a terra-cotta pot be used in place of the bucket? Also, if I make this I think I will use a "skinny" dowel rod and cut off excess. I really like this idea. Thanks for sharing. Happy Fall!
