Pumpkin: Stages of Halloween Pumpkin Being CarvedHalloween Stacked Pumpkin Topiary Tutorial

A stacked pumpkin topiary has been on my Halloween to-make list for forever! I spotted the perfect planter at At Home and was able to cross this project off my crafting list. The topiary is the perfect size to hide our ugly electrical box, which is a total entry way eyesore. You can paint the pumpkins to match your decor theme or leave them plain, like I did. You can also skip the superglue step if you don’t live in a particularly windy environment and want to be able to remove the pieces. If you prefer to decorate for Fall instead of Halloween, use neutral colors for this project. A brown planter and cream boa would look great and carry you through Fall. Happy crafting! 

SUPPLIES

hot glue gun 
black planter (found at At Home)
black feathered boa
3 faux pumpkins (small, medium, large)
sharp knife 
super glue

TUTORIAL

Step 1: Hot glue the feathered boa around the rim of the black planter.

Step 3: Carve small holes on the bottom of the medium and small pumpkins, just large enough to fit over the stems.

Step 6: Place outside to greet trick or treaters! You can cut out vinyl circles to add polka dots to your pumpkins, but I liked my topiary plain.
