First take your pumpkins and drill small holes at the top of them using a 1/2 in or 3/4 drill bit. These holes will hold all of your foliage.

Next attach the pumpkins to the wall by using narrow command strips. I LOVOOOOOOVE these. I use them for almost anything that I hang on the wall.

Place them on the sides and at the tops of the pumpkin. Don’t worry if the attachment velcro shows a little bit. They will be covered by the foliage. Press firmly onto the wall. Make sure they are positioned exactly where you want. Once you remove them you will need a new set of strips.

Next transfer your vinyl decal onto the larger pumpkin. This can simply be done with your Silhouette Cameo! If you dont have one you an use a stencil! 

I bought this design in the design store and uploaded it to my library.

When your arranging your flowers make sure you manipulate them by bending and twisting them towards the front of the pumpkin. Otherwise everything will sit straight up! So use that wire!

  1. This is beautiful, Destiny! You always have the best ideas. I am definitely inspired. I walked around my Michael’s store in search of the striped candles you shared, but unfortunately they didn’t have them. 🙁

  2. Hello!
    Can you tell me what font you used? Also, how does the silhouette work? How does the vinyl stick to the pumpkin?

  3. I just found the link to this on another blog. It is absolutely beautiful!! I would consider myself somewhere in between a beginner to intermediate level (probably closer to beginner 😉 ) crafter. I would love to make this, but it looks like it might be difficult. What do you think? Honestly? Do you think I should have more experience before I attempt it? Thank you so much!!!
    (I’m saving this on my DIY Pinterest board, because it is so gorgeous and for future reference if I think I can make it)
