PUMPKIN TOPIARY ANYONE?


I've had an idea in the back of my mind lately that I wanted to make a pumpkin topiary.
I wanted one of these nice looking black pots but I wasn't about to pay a fortune so off I went to the local thrift store.






I found a pot for fifty cents but it was an ugly yellow so (hee hee hee) I painted it black of course. I went "shopping" out in my garage, which by the way looks like Halloween gone bad right now, and found some plastic pumpkins and some moss and leaves. Then out came the good old glue gun and 30 minutes later and a big mess (I have to make a mess because that is what I do best) I had my version of a pumpkin topiary.




For some fall ideas and tours, visit The Inspired Room because it's Fall Nesting Week!
