We’re pumpkin crazy!
And pumpkin elegant, too. Simply going vertical changes the ‘pumpkin game’ completely! Since these orange squash are our favorite items of Halloween and Fall décor, you need to know how to stack it up!
These are easy projects we all can do in a day or a weekend!
Sheila Bowden’s pumpkin stack is the focal point of her porch display. Three vertical elements, the scarecrow, pumpkin stack and the wooden wagon filled with Fall leaves fill the space with Autumn splendor and whimsy.
Sue Loring says ‘Colors of Fall’ means pumpkins at my house. Lots and Lots of pumpkins! A metal rod or conduit pipe used as a stake stabilizes the tall, tall pumpkin stack. See the project below for how to.
Wouldn’t Tami Williams’s striped pumpkins make an amazing tower?
Faux pumpkin tipsy
Plastic pumpkins can be used for tipsy pots and cement pumpkins. For long-lasting cement pumpkins, the plastic container is used as a mold and eventually cut away.
How to make pumpkin tipsy pots:
- Drill two holes in each pot, as shown
- Anchor a steel rebar rod bolted to a piece of wood laid at bottom of your container
- Thread pots on rod and secure with wire for each pot
- Add soil in the pot firmly to balance it
- Plant with Chrysanthemums…you’re done!

Myra Glandon started this party. Party of the pumpkin people! She started and two more came soon after! Just see…
Myra Glandon says, “Meet Nosey Rosie. You don’t want her sticking her big nose in your business!”
Beth Knight was so inspired by the photo Myra posted that she had to do one too! She says, “I already had the pumpkins…what fun! She is Polly pumpkin. A friend made the little bench from pallets.”
Kaycee Sterling says “Monkey see, monkey do… Thanks for the inspiring ideas!” Think about going ‘up’ in your garden when decorating with Fall pumpkins in all these different ways…
