Welcome to the 17th Seasonal Sunday. It’s all about what the season means to YOU! Now it’s officially fall, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. Saturday it was in the 80s in New York!
Part of it being Fall, means decoration for Fall – inside and out. While I love my pink door, it does make decorating for the different seasons a bit of a challenge. Lots of orange would definitely not work. As I hung my fall wreath and swag of many years, I decided that my exterior fall decor needed a bit of a boost and so I made pumpkin topiaries.
Lucky for me, Michaels had their faux pumpkins on sale for 40% off.
So that they would stack one on top of the other, using a serrated knife,
I cut the stem out of the large and medium sized pumpkins.
In order to give them stability, I cut a small hole in the bottom of each of the three sizes and pushed a dowel through.
I wanted a little foliage to flow between each pumpkin so I arranged it where I wanted it to be and then…
…glue gunned the foliage, at the end, in and around the hole.
I wanted the dowel to be in place while I was applying the foliage, but this presented the issue of where to sit it while I worked on it.
My paper towel holder proved to be just the thing!
I pushed the dowel that was poking out of the bottom into the soil of the urns.
And the finishing touch was to gather more of the foliage around the base of the largest pumpkin.
Hope this brings some fall inspiration to you! I hadn’t done a craft project in awhile (too many tablescapes! LOL!). This project was fun, easy, and I love the results. As my good friend Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen said, “It’s even squirrel proof!”
Looking forward to seeing what FALL means to YOU!
