Looking for an easy fall DIY for your front porch? I was too…
I had this great idea to cut branches from the trees in our backyard when they started turning, but we had a pretty dry/hot summer and start to fall, so everything is still green…or just brown. I moved on to another idea: a pumpkin topiary.
It was a little challenging finding pumpkins (since it’s October and that basically means it’s Christmas), but I found a small shelf of left over decorative pumpkins at our local Michael’s (60% off!!!) and grabbed the last few “matching” ones.

I placed the pumpkin topiaries in planters by our front door – to keep them in place I stuck the wood dowel through an empty cardboard box (inside the planter). I covered the box with burlap and added some more greenery/garland around the base of the topiary to finish.
The hardest part was waiting for the hot glue to cool/dry! Watch the video below for a step by step in super speed.
