DIY Pumpkin Tower Fail Video & Front Door Fall Decor Idea

Have you had this happen? You make, what you think is a great DIY craft project. It’s one that looks JUST like the Pinterest pin.

You walk away thinking, “oh, I’ve totally nailed this one. My yard screams fall,” and I really felt like I rocked this one.

Fall decor for your front door.

Next, it rains for about 2 days. That means your wooden dowel soaked it up, along with the pretty mums, so it wasn’t a total waste¬†….. But, then on day three you pull into your driveway and laugh your butt off! Check out the video for that visual! hahaha

Now, let me tell you how to make a pretty pumpkin tower.

Supply list:

  • Metal Dowel
  • Pumpkin Buckets
  • Spray Paint if you want
  • Drill (for holes in buckets)
  • Once you get the right supplies, here’s how easy it was.
  • Mum for top bucket

It was so easy to make. Spray paint your buckets. Let dry a day.

I drilled offset holes in each bucket but would do them in the center next time.

That’s it. I stuck the dowel in the dirt and added my pumpkins and flowers in the top one.

I had this old blue strainer that is rusting so added some dollar store flowers and a real pumpkin.

Hope you enjoyed the video and I’d love to see what you made! Craft bloopers and all! Post in the comments or on my Facebook page.

Happy Crafting,
