I loved the idea of a pumpkin topiary so I kept an eye out for a big urn for a little price. I was lucky enough to find this one for $1 at a garage sale a couple weekends ago. The funny thing is I was carrying around a plant so another garage saler (don’t you love how I make up words) pointed it out to me. How nice is that! Thank you mystery lady!
Then, it was off to the pumpkin patch for those three perfect pumpkin stackers. The bottom pumpkin was just the right size and the owners goat had chewed off the stem so it was perfect! I broke the middle one’s stem off with my bare hands only to have a giant ear wig jump out at me. Those things creep me out!!! I promptly killed it and proceeded with the stacking.
I really liked the natural look, so I attached a pack of silk leaves from the Dollar Tree with double sided sticky tape and added a raffia bow. you could use piles of real leaves if you are lucky enough to have them. Our trees have not started shedding quite yet.
And here she is in all her harvest glory! I love my cute little pumpkin topiary! Still haven’t gotten my Halloween decorations out. 🙂 he he
I found the original inspiration idea from Grams via Ucreate.
Oh dear, it is 10:30 AM and I just heard a stool being dragged and “MMM cake, mmmm brownies!” coming from the kitchen. The pan of brownies I left on the counter top are in danger!
**Update:this is what I found in the kitchen.
