Welcome autumn with this cute pumpkin topiary. It’s a great project to get the kids involved with, and can be made either in this simplified form, or gussied up by painting and embellishing with lots of details. Either way, this cute decoration is a fun way to welcome fall!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own pumpkin topiary:
Metal burner covers. Mine came in a 2-pack from the dollar store.
Some kind of container to hold your topiary. I used a small metal bucket from the dollar store, but you could just as well use a clay flower pot or other water-tight container.
A wooden stake the height you want your finished topiary to be. It needs to be flat (like a yardstick), rather than round (like a dowel) in order to adhere your finished pumpkins to it easily. Mine is a two-foot tall stake that is a little over an inch wide.
Grab something old and turn it into a sparkling new checkers game! This DIY can easily be adapted to whatever you have on hand. From old art pieces to cardboard boxes and from your ever-growing button stash to bottle caps, you can create a pretty game you’ll love to play.
Since moving into our new home, my overall design style has shifted to be more modern and bright. We can’t always afford to throw out and replace all the items that no longer fit our design aesthetic (at least not right away) so I’ve been trying to refresh pieces whenever possible.
