Pumpiaries.

Have you seen all these pumpkin topiaries floating around blog land this fall? Hello GORGEOUS. I couldn't skip the band wagon, so I jumped right on. I don't have any fabulous urns floating around-- nor the money to get a new one to lie around. But I did have 10.00 and Hobby lobby has terracotta pots for 4.99 a piece. Awesome. I did this project for around 30 bucks I believe. Which is pretty cheap right? I bet you could buy these babies for way more than that online. The garland was 50% off at H.L & I only needed one strand for both, so I paid 5.99 for that, 4 pumpkins (I already had the middle two white ones) which were around 4.00 and 7.00. I already had the black spray paint. I bought some of that green stuff for floral arrangements to make sure the pumpkins were high enough in the pot. Let me just say the "green stuff" Is the devil. I hate it, I'll pay someone to get the rest out of my house. Dusty ol' crap. Pardon my french.

Anyways I didn't take any before pictures buuuuuttttt drum roll please. Pidderpatter pidder patter.








They might get a little more pizzazzing in the upcoming days but for now, I'm going to take my hot glue gun burned fingers to Taco Bell for a reward. Don't tell my diet buddy, or my diet itself. Thanks. :)

Such a cute project, love the colors together.

Taco bell hot sauce can burn your stomach so much that you won't feel your burned fingers.

Hey my little sis is above me here in the comment section (Little Page Turners)! Anyhow, I think your pumpiary is adorable. I like the leaves layered in between. It adds that extra little somethin'.
