4 Ways to Make a Pumpkin Topiary

Don’t just decorate with one pumpkin; stack three together to create a clever topiary.

Elegant Entry

Create a beautiful entry this fall with a nature-inspired topiary. Wrapped in baby’s breath, vines, greenery and a few feathers, this trio of gourds matches the porch’s natural colors and style.  

Spider’s Nest

This totem is carefully wrapped in tiny spiders and black yarn. The big mama spider on top is illuminated by a flashlight inserted inside the top pumpkin. 

Zigzag

This illuminated chevron topiary will help guide trick-or-treaters to your door. The design lends a modern feel, but it is also reminiscent of Charlie Brown, the kid who got nothing but rocks in his treat bag.

Light ‘Em Up

These pumpkins are illuminated with clear lights and strands of crystal. This elegant stack will last all fall. It makes a great Thanksgiving centerpiece as well as a Halloween beacon.
