Heirloom Pumpkin Topiary

Recently I discovered beautiful heirloom pumpkins that I absolutely love! The unusual colors are just gorgeous. I decided to assemble them into a small topiary.IMG_2810

I placed the biggest one upside down in the urn so that the stem would be going down then I stacked the next one on top of it. I used a bundle of grapevines to hold the top one above the stem of the middle one.

They appear to be leaning in this photo but they aren’t. I added a simple burlap bow to the top.

I’ve been busy all summer completing some projects which I will be sharing soon.

I am linking this post to Wow us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style.

I love this look and am tempted to try it in my front pots since the mums have died. :(
