To~pi~ar~y. . .

I got busy Thursday afternoon making
a topiary for our front door stoop.

I found some great faux pumpkins & berry garlands
at Michael's on Wednesday.
I already had the basket, Spanish moss, & some leaves.
My trusty glue gun is antique.
I bought it at Sears decades ago.
I cut a hole in the bottom of the
middle & top pumpkins so they could
be glued over the stem of the other
pumpkins. The basket was placed
in an old pot I had in the garage.
Next, I painted black stripes on the pot.


I think the project turned out great!
I'm not sure if I'll make another one
to put on the other side of the door.
It will be a little crowded if I do.
I'll let you know what I decide. . .

What a wonderful fall idea!
I am going to steal this from you to make my own!
My favorite thing about this is that it can be left up from September through November.
Thank you so much for sharing!

Your project turned out so cute and looks great by the door.
I was laughing at your comment about your antique glue gun. I have one of those too. Everytime I get mine out, I think I should buy a new one, but there is something about that old one that I like. lol
