I decided that I needed a little more going on at the bottom of the door after I got my new wreath up the other day.  See how the bottom just looks a little lonely.  

I figured I would get some pansies or a couple mums.  That was until I saw these adorable pumpkin topiaries that Hollie @ Every day is Hollie-day! did.

I think you guys can see where I am going with this right?  So here you go!  Check out my little mini-pumpkin topiary! 

I got the foam pumpkins 50% off at Hobby Lobby!  I used two of the spray paints from the wreath to give the pumpkins a little gleam. 

I also sprayed a couple of paper leaves gold and used them as a base to sit the pumpkins on top of in the planters.   Stuck in a couple dried grass stalks too - just cause!

So there you go - now the whole thing is a little more sparkly and a lot more festive!  I think they are the perfect little touch to our front door! 

So what about you?  Anyone else do any fall decorating this weekend?  I also put a couple fall touches throughout the house that I will share with you guys later in the week!

The pumpkin topiaries are the finishing touch you needed! They look great with your wreath. Thanks for sharing - I need to get busy on my front porch!

Beautiful! I love the color of the pumpkins and of course the way you have them in the topiaries. I am enjoying fall and the decorating that goes along with it.
Have a blessed week!

What a pretty and inviting porch you created for fall!! I have a blogging friend coming to my house for the first time Friday and I don't have a stitch of fall up yet!! I better get going- geez if I get my house cleaned up no less decorated, it will be a miracle!

LOVE what you've done with your porch! They look soooo good. I noticed some paint them with a sponge brush (messy)but you sprayed yours right? I will be looking for the paint:)

This turned out darling...and so elegant. I still need to decorate my porch...I wish I had a spot for urns like that. It just sets your wreath off! Beautiful job.

Love the Decor! said... @ October 4, 2010 at 7:20 PM

So pretty and that red door is gorgeous too!!

Funky Junk Interiors said... @ October 4, 2010 at 9:16 PM

Love the metalliac look of the pumpkins. Great job. I really must get into the fall mood. I must be in denial thinking summer will be back in just a day or two.

Shimmery yet subtle at the same time - LOVE IT! It's like a little bling for your porch.

Terry said... @ October 5, 2010 at 6:17 AM

I love the two metallic colors, very beautiful and sophisticated and all because of a little paint! Great work!

Julie said... @ October 5, 2010 at 7:10 AM

That's adorable! I love the shimmer you added. Looks great.

fafner said... @ October 5, 2010 at 7:55 AM

The pumpkin topiaries are so pretty! I never get around to decorating for the seasons (except christmas sometimes), but those look so good, it's making me think I should stop being lazy!

AUDRA said... @ October 5, 2010 at 8:57 AM

So pretty. AND so funny, I just did linked something simular. But I love how yours turned out!!

Amazing how paint can change the look of ordinary pumpkins. What a beautiful entry... so welcoming!

Jen said... @ October 5, 2010 at 4:20 PM

Janette@Janette's Sage said... @ October 5, 2010 at 7:53 PM

Looks great...what fun, and a new look!

Colleen @ MuralMaker&More said... @ October 5, 2010 at 9:11 PM

I love how the metallics complement the brick. Did I mention that before? Well, it's worth saying again, if I did.

You know, I've been a floral designer for, well, a very, very long time. I can't believe I never, ever made one pumpkin topiary.

Yours are darling!

Johnna said... @ October 6, 2010 at 1:25 PM

OOH so pretty! Who could resist shimmer! Great job!

SavannahGranny said... @ October 6, 2010 at 4:44 PM

I love these topiaries. They really make the difference on the porch. The silver is such a great spin, you go it going girl.
Monday I posted my first ever post on MM. Please drop for a visit. Any suggestions for improvements will be greatly appreciated. Ginger

Oh, it's me again. Tell me how you put that sweet message by the "post a comment" and how do you put words on your pics? Thanks. Ginger

Michelle said... @ October 7, 2010 at 8:20 AM

I love those! I've been looking for real cinderella pumpkins and have the perfect urn for them but haven't been able to find any. I'm now thinking I will go for fake. I plan on using them for my fall address marker :)

Claire said... @ October 7, 2010 at 2:40 PM
