    Stacked Pumpkins for Fall Decor

    Stacked Pumpkins for Fall Decor

    There are so many versions of stacked pumpkins out there on the internet.  I wanted some stacked pumpkins for fall decor on my front porch, but I wanted them to coordinate with the pieces I made around the front door.  You can read about them at Decorate Your Front Door for Fall.  This is how I made my stacked pumpkin display!

    I am so honored to have been invited by Rachelle of My Hubbard Home to join in this series of Autumn blog hops!  I hope you have been following along with all of the amazing blog posts!  They are full of fantastic ideas and beautiful photos! 

    I have a large urn I have used for a variety of projects over the years.  I put some broken paving stones in it for weight.  My dear hubby drilled three holes in the urn (it is hard fiberglass).  I threaded a wire through each of the holes as shown.  You will need three grapevine wreaths of varying sizes.  Using the wires attached to the urn, Take the wires around the bottom wreath and attach it to the urn securely.  Set your largest pumpkin on top of that wreath.  Next, add a second grapevine wreath on top of the first pumpkin and secure it to the bottom grapevine wreath with floral wire.  Repeat this as many times as you would like. The arrows are showing you where the wire is.  For the top pumpkin, I used hot glue to attach it to the pumpkin beneath it so that it will not fall off without a wreath on top of it.  The next step is to begin adding decor to the grapevine wreaths.  I used the same faux fall leaves and fruits I used around my front door.  Long stems were stuck down into the urn and secured in the grapevine wreaths.  Fill the bottom wreath and then move up to the next one.  Make sure you don’t put too much decor in so that you can still see the pumpkins. 

    The faux apples were added by sticking wood skewers into them and then wedging the skewers into the grapevine wreaths.  This beautiful stack of pumpkins is ready to join the rest of the decor on my front porch!  The pumpkins in the stack are all artificial, but at the base of the urn I placed a combination of real and artificial pumpkins.  My pumpkin stack is way more elaborate than a simple stack of pumpkins, but really catches the eyes of passers by. 

    I hope you enjoy this fall crafty creation!  Now, take a tour of all of these talented bloggers and see what crafts they have created for fall!

    1. Chloe, your pumpkin stack is beautiful and matches the rest of the porch decor perfectly!
      Breaking down the craft with easy to follow instructions is so helpful.
      I think this makes a lovely porch display, but could also be placed on a large sideboard, or dining room table.
      Thanks for sharing your craft for today’s blog hop:)

    2. Chloe, this is my first visit to your site and I have to congratulate you on such a gorgeous project. The stacked pumpkins are beautiful!!! I love the rich, autumn colors and the textures. Thank you for detailed instructions, I may have to try this.

      1. Thank you so much Susan! I am so happy to have you visit! I always love hearing from my readers!!

    3. Chloe you must have the most festive front entry in the country! Your pumpkin topiary is fabulous, I bet people go out of their way to drive by your house and see how it’s decorated! Great tutorial too, I have always loved the decorative topiaries I’ve seen in the Grandin Road and MKC catalogs, I might have to try making one some day.

    4. Rebecca Crabtree says:

      Absolutely love this.

      1. Thank you so much Rebecca! Hey…another Crabtree!! Is your Crabtree family from southern Ohio or Northern Kentucky?

    5. This is gorgeous, Chloe! I love the tips on how to get the pumpkin stack to fit securely in your urn. Since I can’t get anything real to grow in my urns on the front porch, this gives me a great idea to add stately decor that will look good all season. The foliage you chose is beautiful. Well done, my friend!

    6. Chloe your craft and decorating talents are just amazing! I love how gorgeous your stacked pumpkin arrangement looks on your porch and your door color compliments it beautifully too! Pinning!

    7. Okay this is such spectacular!! I love all your tips with wiring it together so it fall over. I love pumpkin topiaries and this is so pretty with the wreaths in between! Great job!

    8. Chloe, you are the master! Your pumpkin stack is so beautiful! Using the wreaths is such a good idea. Pinned!

    9. WOW Chloe your front porch looks amazing. I just made a stacked pumpkin and next to yours. ugh! I wish I would of seen yours before I made mine. Yours is so inspiring!

    10. Chloe, the email I received had no photos at all. Any idea what happened

      1. Thanks so much Julie, I do think there are a few that keep my house on their route!

    14. The stacked pumpkins are gorgeous! Beautiful job.

    15. Hi Chloe
      When you decorated your porch with the birds and made the oval door wreath I thought that it was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen for a porch. It looked like something right out a Pottery Barn catalog. This time once more you did not disappoint. Great color nuances and great tips, Thanks for sharing.

    16. You really make gorgeous out of faux, Chloe! It’s definitely Frontgate and Grandinroad quality!

    17. You’re so wonderfully talented. This year’s porch is just what I love to see. From the posting of the wreath all the way to this beautiful stack of pumpkins.

    18. Chloe, what an amazing arrangement of pumpkins and garland and wreaths you have created. It is so lush. It looks beautiful on your front porch. It is definitely a bountiful harvest.

    19. Brenda Blackwoor says:

      Chloe, I absolutely love the stacked pumpkins.Beautiful display! Im going to do that one for sure ! Thankyou for the detailed instructions.

      Brenda from Ontario, Canada

      1. Thank you so much Brenda, it is really easy to add those wreaths between them! Have fun!!

    20. Wow, Chloe, this is so pretty and it looks very high end! Hats off to you for all the inspiration.

    21. This is beautiful, Chloe! I have a pot just like that, and every year I plant some boring (and expensive!) mums. I should take your lead and do this instead. It’s certainly much prettier and I can use it year after year. Genius and lovely.

      1. I try and change up my decor every year, I was really happy with how this turned out!
