I'm back to pander to the people who love the pumpkin topiaries from my previous post. Here are a few more inspiring ideas.

Unless your pumpkins are carved or painted, the layering between them is important. This one uses yards of wired ribbon and faux berries for a lush look:

These topiarys in classic Halloween colors are from sandandsisal.com, and she shows how she made them using a large paint stick for the center post. See her post here.

A tutorial from  paisleyfarmhouse.com also shows you how you can use 1 spotlamp to light all 3 pumpkins:

Dress up your pumpkins for a very different look:

I must say, I love the look of the white pumpkins, and they probably show up very well at night.
