      Insert a dowel down the center of the pumpkin stack & insert the dowel into the Styrofoam block in the planter as per the directions

    I did. Keeps getting blown apart. I made it for my niece and I believe that it should be kept in a place where the wind cannot get to it. But she wants it in front of her garage. How do I keep it together? I'm not going to give up!!!!!!

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

      These are not real pumpkins, but the foam craft ones. I've had the same ones for years and they are still nice.

    I love these. I think I will use pumpkins that you can get at a craft store (not plastic) and drill holes in the top and bottom and run the dowel rod through it.
