You might know that I simply adore Halloween decor. So when one of the challenges this month from Lowes was Curb Appeal. I thought it would be SO fun to make something Halloween-ish for the front porch at the #1905Cottage. And since the decor over there is mostly yellow, I thought keeping the Halloween theme to basically black and white would be perfect.
So I headed over to Lowes. And I found their Halloween section. They had a HUGE bin of lighted pumpkins with different scary faces, and it made me think of making a Halloween topiary.
You see, I made another Halloween topiary a few years ago and it got damaged in my backyard shed, so I have been meaning to make another for quite some time.
Here’s how I made this easy Halloween project:
DIY Jack-o-Lantern Topiary:
Halloween lighted pumpkins. I used 5.
A 1″ in circumference wood dowel
Spray Paint (I used black and white)
I spray painted three of the pumpkins white and the other two black. But first I PRIMED them.
I also spray painted the dowel black
Then I drilled 1″ holes in the pumpkins. I wanted each one to be tilted to each side, alternating. So I marked the spot with an sharpie and drilled.
Then I planted soil and flowers in the pot and put the dowel in the middle.
I alternated the pumpkins, white, black, white, black, white black. On the last pumpkin I didn’t put the second hold through the top, so the dowel rests against the inside of the top pumpkins. I hope that makes sense lol.
Then I threaded the lights down through the back of the pumpkins and plugged them into the extension cord. I taped the cords together with electrical tape so they wouldn’s show as much.
And here is the Black and White Pumpkin Topiary at night. I just love it!!
