Fall Topiaries

I added some more decor to the front of my house. I am loving all the pumpkin topiaries out there on Pinterest. Even Pottery Barn is doing it, so it MUST be cool then!

I found two pots at lowes a while back that where $10 a piece originally and clearance for $1.50! Whoo whoo! Happy dance! I bought them knowing I would use them for something. Sometime. Somewhere. And I did this weekend.

Don't you love it! Ethan thinks the rat silhouettes are funny. So cute! So I bought the two smaller pumpkins on top, the black birds, the leaves, and the rats at the dollar store. Then the two large white pumpkins on the bottom are from Michaels 40% off (of course). I painted the middle pumpkins white and added some upholstery tacs I had on hand already. Then I hot glued everything together and put a rock in the bottom of each pot.

You can find the post on the pumpkin patch blocks HERE and the post on the wreath HERE.

Are you ready for fall?? I am! The weather has cooled off slightly here. So nice!

SO cute! Love the upholstery tacks and the way you added the leaves in between the pumpkins! And that rat sillouette on the step really caught me off guard! Cute!

I am insanely jealous of these white pumpkin toparies. When are you comign to my house to do this? I have been dreaming about Halloween decorations but so far have only cut out some bats and felt guilty about not hanging them. I'm pathetic holiday decorator.

This looks fantastic though! Love it!
