Labor Day weekend always gets me in the mood for fall….even thought it has been like 1,000 degrees here all weekend. Nonetheless, I always start my fall decorating on this weekend each year. Lately I have been so inspired by all of the stacked pumpkin topiaries I have seen on Pinterest and the vases filled with pumpkins. Here are just a few of my Pinsperations…
One | Two | Three
Four | Five | Six
Are these not all just too adorable and fun??!!?? Well, needless to say all this pumpkin stacking got my wheels turning and I realized I finally had a use for this piece I bought for the back porch a couple of years ago. I found it at Home Goods and thought it would add a nice architectural touch to the porch as well as add some height next to some of my shorter planters. I honestly have no idea what its “real” purpose was intended to be…maybe a candle holder or a trellis for a climbing potted plant…..now it is a pumpkin topiary!! 🙂
I just flipped the top part over an filled it with 8 pie pumpkins I found at Meijers late yesterday evening and then had The Hubs help me put the base on it and flip it right side up. Seriously…it was a 2 minute project and I just love the results! The mums are from the High School Cross Country Team’s annual mum sale. I just dumped the summer flowers out of my urns….they were looking pretty sad anyway….and plopped these pots right in the urns. Another 2 minute project! The mums were only $6 each and the 8 pie pumpkins were $2 each so for about $22 I have a nice little fall display on the back porch. I just love fall!!
Have a Great One All!!
