Whimsical Stacked Pumpkins

I created this whimsical stacked pumpkin display in my new MacKenzie Childs Spookarella Pumpkin Cart.  I had my eye on it last year but didn't want to pay as much as they were asking.  I happened across it recently and it's on sale for half off.  There were 2 sizes originally and this is the smaller one (the only one available now).  I've included the link below (not making money on it- just sharing).

It's really cute and when I display it for Halloween I will have it set up with a few other things to make it more festive.

I found the pumpkins at Pier 1.  They are sold as a 4 pc. ornament set.  Made of styrofoam so they were easy to glue together and stack the way I wanted.


The orange one at the bottom is glued to a larger piece of foam that was sprayed with a little black paint so it would help disguise it.  I used some fall blend excelsior to stuff around the foam to keep it in place and add a little texture.  I found floral picks with leaves, berries and pumpkins to fill in around the stacked pumpkins.  I wanted it to look very "Halloweenish"!


The witche hat was found as part of a three pack at Hobby Lobby (in the floral area).  It came with a long stick so you could add it to an arrangement.  I cut off the stick and glued it on.  I did a lot of hunting to find it and I couldn't be happier!  

I won't be displaying this for a while yet but after I found the cart on sale I decided to embellish it.  The supplies are good at the craft stores but they start to dwindle so I didn't want to wait.  I had noticed a lot of stacked pumpkin creations at the stores which sparked the idea in my head for this.  It's going to look real cute once I pair it up with the witch I have to go with it!

I hope you liked my Whimsical Stacked Pumpkins!
