fall décor guide: fall sunflower stacked pumpkin topiary

The air is beginning to feel crisp and cool and smells like fall is coming. What a perfect time of year to decorate your front door or patio. These planters will impress all your neighbors or friends and to their surprise, they are faux pumpkins and floral!
Step 1

Fill a large clay pot with floral foam and set aside.

Step 2

To attach the stacked pumpkins you will need to poke a hole under each pumpkin with a pointed strong instrument like a screwdriver. Once all holes are in place you will use a long dowel to connect the top pumpkin to the middle pumpkin.

TIP: If the dowel is to long you will need to cut it to the correct size with the wire cutters.

Step 3

Repeat Step 2 to attach the middle pumpkin to the bottom pumpkin. Now you will place a dowel into the bottom pumpkin. Use a little hot glue to hold the dowels in place.

Step 4

Push the exposed dowel into the potted floral foam leaving a 3” gap between the foam and the pumpkin.

Step 5

Set the pot into the wooden planter box.


Step 6

Wrap the coiled garland around the pumpkins and use floral pins to hold it in place.

Step 7

Build the floral arrangement into the exposed floral foam under the pumpkin. Cut stems as needed for a variety of heights and bend outward.

Step 8

Add some sand to the base of the wooden planter to help keep it balanced.

Step 9

Fill the remaining wood planter with moss to cover up the pot and floral foam.

Step 10
Accent the moss with small pumpkins.
