Looking for some easy DIY fall pumpkin decor? It only takes a few minutes to create this beautiful, fall pumpkin topiary for your home.
Fall is here and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s my absolute favorite season. And I’m so happy that I’m not the only one who loves to start decorating early! Because today I’m honored to join my friend, Krista from the Happy Housie and so many other talented bloggers for a fall diy/craft edition of Seasonal Simplicity. My diy fall pumpkin topiary is, of course, super simple. And it’s neutral fall colors make it the perfect decor for your home!
This diy fall pumpkin topiary has to be one of the easiest fall decors I’ve ever made, but I absolutely love how it turned out. To me, it’s a classic fall look that is fabulous not only on the front porch but possibly as a pair flanking the garage doors. Just picture it — sooo pretty!
I promise you, the steps for this fall pumpkin topiary is as easy as enjoying a sweet pumpkin spiced latte!
Here’s what you need to make this diy fall pumpkin topiary:
(affiliate links may be included for your convenience)
- one garden urn
- one large faux pumpkin
- one faux medium / small pumpkin
- one grapevine wreath (10-14 in depending on your urn size)
- four faux eucalyptus branches
Add The Eucalyptus
The first thing I did was add the eucalyptus branches. I bent the branches (adding a little curve) right below where the leaves started. This way the branch would rest on the lip of the urn easily and be more likely to stay in place. I added four branches, one at a time, bending them into a nice arrangement off the urn. I only placed them towards one-half of the urn…so basically the back has none. When I place them up against the house, no one will see the back, so why decorate there! 😉
Top With Grapevine Wreath
Once I have the eucalyptus in the urn, I placed my 10-inch grapevine wreath right on top. It’s not wired down or anything — just sitting there. The wreath will help secure the eucalyptus and give the pumpkins a good foundation to rest on. And I love the look of the grapevine peeking out next to the eucalyptus. So pretty!
Stack with Pumpkins
Starting with the largest pumpkin first, I placed it directly on top of the grapevine wreath. To get the topiary effect, I needed to stack another smaller pumpkin on top. But the stem on bottom pumpkin was keeping the pumpkin from sitting flat.
At first, I thought I would just remove the stem from the larger pumpkin. BUT if I wanted to use it later in another display — it would be stemless. Not good. So instead, I decided to just get a small knife and cut a small hole out of the bottom of the smaller pumpkin. This way, I can reuse both pumpkins later and no one will ever see any of the damage! Smart, right?!
Once the small hole was cut out, I just placed the smaller pumpkin right on top of the larger one. I then stepped back and tweaked a few little details and that was it.
Actually, I made two; one for each side of the door. But today I’m only showing you the one until I reveal the complete fall porch tour in a few weeks! I love how nice it looks right next to the front door and my fall rug/mat combo.
This year, my buffalo check rug has made it’s way to the front porch. You know I how much I love that neutral pattern. And when I paired it with my hello mat, it was like a match made in heaven. 🙂
