Pumpkin Topiary Knock-Off

I love these "pumpkin topiaries" from the October 2012 edition of Southern Living magazine.  I don't know what else to call them.  It's a new, snappy way to display what is the quintessential symbol for fall.  

So here's my pitiful and shameless attempt to copy the cute topiaries.  Don't judge.


  1. Oh wow! They look gorgeous! You did a great job on them and I like the red berries sticking out.

  2. These are fabulous! I love this idea and would like to add this to our front porch. Thanks for sharing. Happy Fall!

  3. Those turned out well. I like the greenery and berries in between them.

  4. Love yours! I love the blue boxes...yours have more personality ;) come link up to my blog party.

  5. I like your pumpkin topiary better! It's adorable.

  6. The pumpkin topiary looks fabulous! Thanks for joining the Open House party and I am now a follower. Take care!

  7. THEY LOOK fantastic, Kathy!
    No leaning tower comments here!

    You are too funny.

    They look just "smashing"!
    (I mean that in a good way, the British way, of course!!!)

    Thanks for sharing sweet friend!

  8. Oh, that is just lovely! Very warm and inviting. Thank you for sharing. Visiting from No Minimalist. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2012/10/make-it-pretty-monday-week-17.html Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  9. They look great! I've been toying with doing this, but it looks like so much work, and then I get lazy.

    Happy Fall!

  10. I think they lean JUST RIGHT! Quite charming! One of my friends does this in her urns every Autumn! Love it!

  11. Your pumpkin topiaries look great! The berries in between are perfect and I like the planter boxes. I love to find some of those flat pumpkins that are in the SL photo, but I never see any around here. Have a great weekend,

  12. Hi Kathy,
    Love the pumpkin topiaries. They are perfect. I'm thrilled to have found your blog. I am a lover of the colors red and green with a little tartan thrown in for good luck. I am a fan.
