Autumn is just around the corner and I have been planning what I would do to update my porch for the change of the season. I have been admiring the ghost pumpkins that have been out the past couple of seasons. So I decided to update my pumpkin topiaries. You can see what they used to look like here. I thought that a neutral theme for the front porch with a splash of orange would be different and give me a chance to give my topiaries redo in the process. These topiaries have been on our front porch for over ten years and they have had several make overs. So I figured a little spray paint might just give them a fresh new look.
If you look closely, you will notice that the pumpkins are slightly different color. I used Krylon khaki (for the bottom), pebble (for the middle), and almond (for the top) all had a satin finish. I used spanish moss to cover up the wire of the garland that has all the little berries on it as well as between each pumpkin. Besides, spanish moss will cover up a myriad of imperfections not only from the age of the pumpkins but my amateur floral skills.
