Easy Craft Pumpkin Flower Tower Table Decor


 It's October and that means pumpkin season!  My Pumpkin Flower Tower is a simple way to add some pumpkin decor that will compliment any space: put it on a mantle or console table, use as a centerpiece - it would even look cute on a bathroom shelf or counter.


I paired mine with some wine & pomegranate colored candles and my DIY'd Fall Patchwork Ribbon Sign for a little fall-themed entryway decoration.


Layering in silk flowers that compliment with your room's pre-existing colors means it's easy to work that tricky pumpkin orange into any decor.  


My kids say it's like having a beautiful cake out on display and I'm inclined to agree!

  
Materials:
- Trio of foam craft pumpkins, small, medium & large
- Silk flower bunches with small, medium & large blooms
- Charger or plate
- Hot glue gun


Remove all the blossoms from the stems and sort by size:


Remove the stems from the bottom and center pumpkins - gently twisting and then pulling removes them from most foam styles.  Or just cut them off.


Arrange the largest blossoms on the charger so that they'll peek out from under the largest pumpkin.  Add some hot glue underneath each one to hold in place.


 Add a circle of hot glue to the bottom of the largest pumpkin and set on top of the blossoms.


Hot glue the medium pumpkin to the top of the largest pumpkin and the smallest on top of that to make the full tower.


Put a circle of hot glue at the base of each flower for the middle row:


 and press them into the space between the pumpkin layers. Repeat with the top tier.


 Hot glue a few leaves from the floral stems here & there for a more natural look.


Now the tower is ready to display!


It's really helped make our foyer look fall festive and transition beautifully into the neighboring living room's wine colored walls. 


Now whenever anyone comes in, there's a happy fall look to greet them!
