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

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.
