Do you like decorating for Fall and Halloween? Do you like creating easy fall and Halloween decorations? I took a column and pumpkin and made easy Halloween pumpkin outdoor decorations.
Here’s an old column a friend gave me. The first thing I did was power wash it to clean it and remove all of the chipping paint.
It was deteriorating so I knew it would be perfect for fall and Halloween.
I painted the column with Rustoleum black spray paint.
I painted the indented part of the column with Rustoleum silver spray paint.
I found this super cute ceramic pumpkin planter. Mine came from Walmart and it came in white and orange.
Option 1 (and my fail)
I filled the pumpkin planter with water.
I added a solar fountain to the pumpkin. I thought it would be fun to have the spraying water as a stem.
My fail – unfortunately it was not sealed properly so water was running out of the plug in the bottom. I would need to empty this out and seal it with silicone and try again.
Solar Fountain – these solar fountains only tend to run when there is full sun on them. They run a little bit if there is a little cloud cover, but not fully. They don’t run at night. I do like the solar fountains but you need to make sure you’re putting them where you’ll get enough sun.
Option 2 – I added faux flowers in the pumpkin for a beautiful fall display.
You could easily plant a live mum plant in the pumpkin as well.
Another option which I love is to rotate the pumpkin face to the back and you can have it on display the rest of your fall season.
In fact the I think you could put different plants and fake flowers in the pumpkin the rest of the year with the reverse side of the pumpkin.
