Pumpkin topiaries are a wonderful way to decorate your front porch or garden for the fall season and Halloween. There are many ways to approach making one and the creative possibilities are endless. They can be as simple or complex as you choose and are a blast to make.
Your pumpkin topiary can be made with real pumpkins or fake ones, can be Halloween themed or an elegant front porch decor for autumn. You can carve the pumpkins, paint them, decorate them with foliage, leave them in their own natural state of beauty or do any combination you desire.
In order to make your own pumpkin topiary it is best to first decide if you wish to use real pumpkins or fake ones. In the end, both turn out beautifully. If you choose to use fake ones, you can keep them for future Halloweens and autumn seasons.
Here are two fabulous pumpkin topiaries made with fake pumpkins. Over at a Diamond in the Stuff she created a glittered “boo” pumpkin topiary by spraying her fake pumpkins and wooden letters with glitter blast and hot gluing them together.
Or the lovely creation by Southern Charm in which she went with the more natural look of autumn using raffia, garland and floral picks.
If using real pumpkins, here is a great tip: use pumpkins of different colors or varieties to break it up and add visual interest. Just like they did at llhdesigns . We love the added hay, especially if you live on a farm or in a farming community.
Newly Woodwards created a lovely autumn display for her front porch to go along with her darling pumpkin topiary.
