Halloween Pumpkin Topiary Decor

I saw something like this somewhere! I'm thinking it was a magazine but I'm not sure... Anyways, I wish I remembered so I could post the picture of how much cuter it can be. This was the best I could do on a budget :) Here's how it turned out and a quick overview of what I did...


I used 3 different sized artificial pumpkins, two outside pots (1 Ural would be so much nicer!), Spanish moss, black vinyl and acrylic paint...oh, add cardboard. :)
---
make a platform for the pumpkins to sit on inside the pots.



Cut the two bottom steams off the pumpkins and stack them on top of each other.


 Before gluing the pumpkins on top of each other. Antique the pots with black acrylic paint and glue the two bottoms together. 
 Glue the pumpkins and moss on
add the image of the tree with the black vinyl.





 Then you're done!

  11. I haven't seen this before, and I love it!!! Too often the containers are too short for topiaries. Great idea stacking the two. And I love the black tree. Very cool!

    Would love for you to stop by Sunday and link up to Passion for Paint!

  26. HI- I love this too. Where did you get your vinyl or did you do it yourself?? Could you share the template if you did?? This is also on the goodhousekeeping website and they added drill holes so lights could be used. Thanks...
