Are you craving the rustic elements of fall pumpkins and gourds without the bright colors? Me too! This fall I decided to make my own muted design inspired by farmhouse décor. I started by wrapping faux pumpkins in twine, burlap, and white paint. Then, I used natural clay pots and moss to create a stacked topiary display. I began with the base of a clay pot and used hot glue to layer moss and pumpkins. You can make it to your desired height and design, perfect for adding a touch of the season your fireplace mantle or front porch steps!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- 2 Clay Pots
- Dried Moss
- 6 Faux Pumpkins
- White Paint
- Hot Glue Gun (Not Sold at Dollar Tree)
- Hot Glue Sticks
Follow Along Step-by-Step:
- Use white paint, twine, burlap, and hot glue to create rustic neutral-toned pumpkins.
- Fill each pot with moss and use hot glue to adhere the first pumpkin to the pot.
- Use glue to apply additional moss and another pumpkin stacked overtop. Repeat again for a third pumpkin stack.
- Prop your pumpkin topiary on the mantle or front steps of your porch for the perfect touch of farmhouse fall décor!
