{Quick & Easy} Outdoor Pumpkin Topiaries

Outdoor Pumpkin Topiary

We are getting settled into our new home. Maybe a little slower than I would like but we have actually made a lot of progress! It’s so nice to be able to do whatever we want to this home because, this time around, it’s all ours.

I have hesitated to decorate for Fall inside the house until it is more put together. However I was just itching to bring some Autumn into world. So I decided to work a a few outdoor projects in between unpacking boxes and organizing my butt off.

Outdoor Pumpkin Topiaries

I knew I wanted to create some fun Fall topiaries for my two clearanced Michael’s urns. My only limitation was I didn’t want to spend a ton of money because I was doing plenty of that on new things for the house. So I scooped up a few $5 pumpkins and some Fall leaf garland on sale.

I found that the pumpkins needed a little…boost…to get them to sit right in the urns. It just so happened that I have a ton of packing paper lying around the house right now. A. Ton. So I crumpled some up and put it into each urn.

After I took the stem off of the larger pumpkin, I placed it into the urn on top of the crumpled paper.

Once the large pumpkin was in place I wrapped some of the garland around it. I placed the garland just under the pumpkin, resting on the top of the urn.

The smaller pumpkin was attached to the larger one using some “earthquake” putty (I wanted it all to be temporary). I swear this putty is one of my favorite decorating tools!

You can’t really get anymore simple than that. Pretty inexpensive too, I ended up spending around $25 for all of it.

I love love pulling into my driveway now and seeing these on either side of my entryway. It brings just the touch of Fall to our home that I was looking for.

I hope you enjoyed my Outdoor Pumpkin Topiaries, I am so glad to be back creating and blogging. Feels great. See y’all soon with another pumpkin project….

Linking up to these great link parties!!!


  1. These are awesome! I have never heard of “earthquake” putty… do you get it at the craft store?

    • Out in California I could find it everywhere….but once we arrived here I found some at Hobby Lobby. I use it to attach light weight items to my walls too (those that don’t have any way to really hang them otherwise, like paper mache or wood letters).

  2. Love it! I’m definitely doing something similar. Where did you find the pumpkins at that price??
    I’m going to add a few bricks to the urn…we get lots of autumn wind here. 🙂
    Thanks for the idea!

  3. Super cute project! I think I’ll have to do something like that. I’ve never heard of ‘Earthquake’ putty either, so now I’ll have to look for it.

  4. Love your pumpkin topiaries!
