Get ready to dive into the world of Festive Pumpkin Planters – the ultimate trick to decking out your porch with a touch of Halloween magic that also carries the essence of the fall season.
1. Purchase Pumpkins
Run, do not walk, to Walmart where plastic pumpkin pails are only $1.00 while supplies last.
For one planter, purchase 5 pumpkins.
2. Rebar Placement
Purchase 4' rebar rods and place them into a pot (yellow circles). Secure with stones and soil.
I made two planters so I purchased 2 rebar rods and 10 pumpkins.
3. Cut the Handles
We don't need the handles so cut them off with scissors (yellow circle)
4. Drill Holes
Drill holes in the bottom of each pumpkin, big enough to fit onto the rebar rod.
5. Slide on the Pumpkins
Slide the first pumpkin onto the rebar and place it in the pot.
6. Fill with Soil
Fill the pumpkins and pots with soil.
7. Plant Flowers
I chose to plant mums, at this time of year, they are on sale.
8. Continue Planting
A - Slide the next pumpkin onto the rebar and tip it to the left. Add soil and a plant
B - Slide the next pumpkin onto the rebar and tip it to the right. Add soil and a plant
C - Slide the next pumpkin onto the rebar and tip it to the left. Add soil and a plant
D - Slide the next pumpkin onto the rebar and tip it to the right. Add soil and a plant

Simple, fun, and oh-so-spooky, these planters are your ticket to porch perfection this Halloween and throughout the autumn season.
