DIY Pumpkin Tower Fail – Pinterest Fail
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.
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.
Pumpkin Towner Supply list:
- Metal Dowel
- Plastic Pumpkin Buckets
- Spray Paint if you want
- Drill (for holes in buckets)
- Mums or flowers & Dirt for top bucket
It was so easy to make. Spray paint your buckets. Let dry a day so they don’t stick together. I used the hammered silver look to make them look vintage-like.
I drilled offset holes in each bucket, but would do them in the center next time. I had seen those flowerpots people off set then stack with flowers but the tops of these candy buckets aren’t big enough for that concept.
That’s it. I stuck the dowel in the dirt where I want them. Next, I added my pumpkins and filled the top one with some flowers.
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.
DIYs and designing SVG files are my passion. I feel so blessed to get to do what I love on this site for work. If you are a crafter or a craft business owner, I invite to look around and have fun! Read more…
I will be trying this, this weekend. I didn’t realize I would a dowel rod, good info. I will send a pic when I’m finished.
