Peek-A-Boo Pumpkins

Some of you know I have been working on my blog to give it a new look. Right in the middle of it all, I came down with an infection, so I haven't felt like doing a lot of work. Sorry about the navigation being so messy.  I also have an upcoming  clogging performance this Saturday.  When it rains, it pours, so to speak.  Again, please excuse my updating....

Well, I was inspired when I saw the Topiary pumpkins over at Janis's Blog All Things Beautiful.  Janis did an amazing job on this gorgeous pumpkins. I had to give them a try.  The great thing about these pumpkins, you can use them  time and time again  through the years.  No pumpkins rotting away.  I do use real pumpkins, just for certain things.  Go here to see her beautiful creations.

I used 3 faux pumpkins for each topiary....small, medium and large.  I used Funkins.
I found the small and medium pumpkins at JoAnns. They were on sale.
The large Funkins, I found at Hobby Lobby.  My husband and I went, both with a 40% off coupon in hand.
One per customer, so we split up. We drilled holes with two different size drill bits and added Xmas lights.
I did mine alittle different than Janis.  I didn't glue them.  We used a stake to keep them all in line....tiered.
I added the Fall garlands after the pumpkins were tiered up. I just wrapped them around, starting at the top,
so you wouldn't see where there pumpkins were connected.  Sorry, I forgot to add my bows, so they are not in the photo.  Give them a try!

Thanks again for visiting.  I hope to have all of this cleared up soon.
Thank you for your patience. Happy Fall.
I am joining these blogs for their linky parties.

  5. I love this time of year. Pumpkins are really a beautiful vegetable (and tasty too!). What you have done here is very artistic.

  6. You did a wonderful job with the pumpkin topiary! It really looks great. Hope you feel better soon!

  7. These are beautiful, Linda. Ya'll have me wanting to make some, and I have the pumpkins in the attic.

  8. Hi Linda, what a cute idea. They look great! Thanks for sharing. Gina

  9. I love these! I have never used the faux pumpkins, but these look fabulous - especially all lit up. Maybe I need to invest in some of them. Hope you feel better in time for your clogging event!!!

  10. So cute Linda, I haven't got in the attic yet but, I know there should be some up there! I have to try this. Feel better soon!

  11. First of all, I hope you feel better soon! I really like the addition of the lights to your toparies. Mom and I made toparies similar to yours but without the lights and left them on the front porch one Halloween night. Sadly, it was stoken by teenagers who stole and vandalized the neighborhood later that night. I keep saying I want to make another set, but haven't done it again.

    I also like the pretty wreaths on your doors. You've done a wonderful job on your outdoor decorating.

  12. Hi Linda-
