Fall Nesting with a Pumpkin Topiary

This week I have been participating in "Fall Nesting Week" with The Inspired Room. We are sharing our fall decor, projects, and ideas, to gather some fall inspiration.

These faux pumpkin topiaries have been in the magazines the last few years, so last year I thought I would try it out with an old urn I had found. This urn weighs a ton and about sent my husband to the hospital trying to load it into the car. I decorate it seasonally, and my fall motif is my favorite.

I didn't glue it because I wanted easy storage, but I did cut out the bottom of the pumpkins, so they would sit easier and more secure on the one underneath. That's it! I've seen some lighted and carved which are also wonderful, this one is pretty plain, but I tried to dress it up with varied pumpkin colors and some ivy and fall berry garland. I think it makes a somewhat elegant fall statement for my entry hall.

Be sure and go on over to see Melissa at The Inspired Room,
and all the other participants for Fall Nesting Week.

Have a Great Holiday Weekend!

  6. Good idea not to glue for packing it all up for storage. It looks so pretty. I hope to do some Fall deco shopping this week and next weekend I intend to drag out all my boxes of Fall decos and there are quite a few of them since I tend to go nuts for Halloween.
