Pumpkin Topiary - Fall Decorating Ideas
Tutorial on making your own pumpkin topiary.
Start by placing a Styrofoam block in your container. Use a dowel to stack your carve-able pumpkins. You will need to remove two stems off of the two bottom pumpkins.
To add a monogram to your pumpkin, print out a letter, and use a few stick pins to hold it in place. Take another stick pin and gentle poke small holes following the lines of your letter.
Play "dot-to-dot" with a pencil and trace the outline of your letter. Paint with acrylic paint, and finish with a spray sealer.
Add some fall florals under the bottom pumpkin. Attach with hot glue.
Now all your topiary needs is a bow!
