17 Awesomely Different Pumpkin Ideas
Real or plastic, all white , steam punk, repurposed and upcycled, cement or even paper, we love using pumpkins and making pumpkins and decorating with pumpkins at Flea Market Gardening. I haven’t quite figured out how Simply Bungalow made or acquired those cement pumpkins below, but I intend to find out. And, I’ll let you know, for sure when I do! See what you think of all these and comment below!
Yep, these are the ones….Does anyone know how these were made? I’m thinking rope wrapped around, but how? I need to know!
Jeanie Merritt: “I’m getting ready to make some more “literary” pumpkins!! Made these last year and they were a hit with friends and family, and so easy to do… I used old paperback books that I bought at yard sales, cut the pages in small strips and modge podged the pieces on to a 50 cent fake pumpkin bought at the dollar store.. Many use a cinnamon stick for the stem, but I liked using a real piece of branch!!! Add a little Spanish moss, and you just “antiqued” a pumpkin! Looks great in a tabletop vignette.”
“Un” real Easy
Some of these, anyone can do, …and I mean anyone!
Darnell Fugate: Really easy and simple 10 minute job… I did not use a real pumpkin but purchased one of those pumpkin trick or treat buckets the kids collect their candy in. I drilled drainage holes in the bottom and re-potted the mums. This time it will not rot like the real pumpkin did and I can reuse it year after year.
Yvonne Pepsin: You drill holes (2) put wire on and twist to secure for each pot. Anchor with a piece of wood laid at bottom and a steel rod (anything you can attach to wood and pumpkin) going through it and bolted and also at base of bottom pumpkin.. Soil or dirt in pot helps to balance it.
