Here’s a great Fall project that will get a whole lot of attention when you put it in your front yard.
I like starting the season with fun projects. It’s excellent to be able to make these plastic pumpkin planters and fill them with flowers or herbs. These do have personality.
Basically, what you see is what it is and how to make it. I can give you some basic tips, but you may already have an idea of how you’d like to create your own DIY project.
As I said, these are plastic pumpkins. You can make the face you want on them and drill a hole in the bottom of each pumpkin for drainage.
To keep these beauties in place, you’ll first need to put a long stick into your planter pumpkin pot and one-by-one decide how the pumpkins are going to be stacked, allowing plenty of room for the flowers or herbs to grow and be beautiful. You will be doing a lot of drilling holes in your plastic pumpkins to get their placement just right on the stick or stake.
I was thinking this would be fun to set up, on a smaller scale, for a party centerpiece for your table minus the dirt in the planter pumpkin pot. There are plenty of variations you can do with this great idea.
For indoors you could use twist ties to attach the pumpkins to the stick and have them for your guests to take home with goodies packed inside. You could even add names on the back of them.
I do like this idea for the yard, but it’s always fun to come up with variations for indoors as well. I’m sure you’ve come up with a few ideas of your own.
As with all DIY projects, have fun and allow your imagination to soar.
Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment with your thoughts about this project and what variations you’ve dreamed up.
