How to make this pumpkin topiary
I started with 3 medium carvable pumpkins from Michael's, $8.99 each (50% off). For the monogram I used Microsoft Word, selected the font I liked in size 400, and printed it. I taped it to the front of the pumpkin. I then used a pin to "trace" the outline of the letter by pushing it thru the pumpkin. Just push enough to make an imprint.
Use a pencil to connect the dots; then a sharpie to outline and fill in.
Drill a hole through the top and bottom of all 3 pumpkins a put a dowel through.
I used a large round styrofoam ball inside a plastic urn as the base for the topiary.
There was still space for the ball to move so I stuffed some plastic bags around the ball to stabilize it.
Insert the dowel thru all 3 pumpkins and into the styrofoam ball, add some greenery, pinecones and other fall filling in the urn; pop a bow on top and you have a beautiful fall topiary!
