One of my favorite things to do in fall is decorate my front porch. I love front walkways filled with pumpkins in various colors, fall florals and greens. This year I decided to do something a little different and use all faux so no rotting pumpkins Scroll down to see this year’s fall front porch decor that isn’t mums. I’ve got a DIY pumpkin topiary and a faux cabbage arrangement.
Tons of fall inspiration
Today I am teaming up with some blogger friends of mine to bring you some more fall inspiration for a Fall Is In The Air Blog Hop. We’ve got tablescapes, mantle decor, fall hutch decor ideas and more ideas for your home so if decor is your thing, you’re going to want to tag along.
If you’re coming over from Kristy at Kristy Mastrondonas, welcome! I hope you will like it here and decide to follow along for more! Kristy definitely has an eye for decor and a way of bringing people together doesn’t she? Thank you for inviting me to participate in today’s party Kristy!
There’s just something that I love about a pumpkin topiary. I’ve been looking at various ones but for a single stack it’s easily over $100. Perfect example, this one below for over $130.
So I decided to DIY a pumpkin topiary myself. I gathered some pumpkins in different colors and sizes and got to work! I simply just pulled the stems off, added a ring of super glue and stacked each pumpkin on top.
This one topiary cost me about $54 to make, so I got two for still less the price of the one above! And the best part, it’s faux so it won’t rot. I can use year after year.
That’s a smart investment if you ask me 🙂
I’m linking some similar things below so you can recreate it!
Faux Cabbage Arrangement
Ornamental cabbage or kale is so beautiful in baskets on the front porch. I did some real cabbage last year but of course, it didn’t last long. So I decided to search for some faux cabbage. Leave it to Amazon to pull through.
At first when I got these in the mail I wasn’t so sure.
But once you open them and fluff out the leaves it is so lush! And this basket is perfect!
Tip – I put some rocks in the bottom to weigh it down and clipped the bottom of the stem of cabbage so that it fits nicely.

Love your pumpkin topiary idea! The pumpkins look real, I have been eyeing that cabbage myself and thinking I need it, but then keep putting it off. I think I will finally pick it up! Thanks for sharing!
