Halloween Pumpkin Topiary With Spiders (page 1 of 2)

We stacked three plain pumpkins together then adorned them in spiders to make a spooky Halloween decoration.

More in Decorating

To make this adorable pumpkin topiary, we pinned on spiders and wrapped the pumpkins with black yarn.

Tools and Supplies

serrated knife
hot-glue gun
3 carving pumpkins (we used faux pumpkins by Funkins)
30 to 40 straight pins with a black tops
black yarn
small plastic toy spiders
one large spider

Carve and Stack

Carve the top and bottom of the top pumpkin in the stack. Carve the bottom of the middle pumpkin in the stack. This way stack on top of each other and the top one will have an opening for the flashlight.

Insert Pins

Push the black sewing pins into the pumpkins in a random pattern. Leave half of the pin sticking out. Use about 15 pins per pumpkin.
