Materials + Tools

  • mauve craft paint
  • foam brushes
  • super glue
  • utility knife
  • metal house numbers
  • large ceramic planter

Prep + Paint

Start with three different sizes of faux pumpkins: small for the top, medium for the middle and large for the base of the topiary. Use a utility knife to carefully remove the stems from the medium and large faux pumpkins. Note: Do not remove the stem from the small pumpkin. Use a foam brush to create a seasonal jewel tone color palette by painting the largest pumpkin rust red (Image 1), the medium pumpkin green (Image 2) and the smallest pumpkin mauve (Image 3). Once all the pumpkins are dry, paint a second coat on each pumpkin to ensure a deep and even color (Image 4). Next, arrange the plain metal house numbers on a crafting table. Use gold spray paint to coat the front of each house number (Image 5). Let dry completely.

Glue + Stack

First, take the large nursery planter and turn it over; the planter bottom should be facing up (Image 1). Next, add a generous layer of super glue to the bottom of the largest, red pumpkin. Moving quickly, place the red pumpkin on the plastic planter. Press down on the pumpkin to create a firm seal. Next, add a generous layer of super glue to the top of the red pumpkin. Moving quickly, add the green pumpkin to the top of the red pumpkin (Image 2). Once secure, glue the smallest, mauve pumpkin to the top of the green pumpkin (Image 3). Let the stacked and glued pumpkins dry completely before moving (Image 4).

Add Spice + Enjoy!

Place the assembled pumpkin topiary inside a large ceramic planter that is 2 inches wider than the plastic nursery planter (Image 1). Affix the gold house numbers to the pumpkins using super glue and let dry. Then spice up the topiary by gluing faux fall foliage around the pumpkins to complete the look (Image 2).
