I decided to take advantage of the beautiful fall harvest here in New England and incorporate a pumpkin topiary in my sukkah décor this year. I think it’s a charming way to welcome guests to our sukkah!
The first thing I did was write the words onto the pumpkins. (I suppose this step would have been easier if I used those rub-on transfer papers that you print out from your computer and rub onto the object, but I wasn’t sure how that would hold up in the rain).
After rubbing pencil onto the back of the paper, I used a ball point pen to trace over the letters onto my pumpkin. Next, I used a black Sharpie paint pen to draw the letters.
I also sliced the tops off both the bottom and middle pumpkin to form a flat surface. I used Goop glue to hold them in place and let them dry for 24 hours. A bit of Spanish Moss covered the glue and added softness to the topiary.
Ready for guests…now if the rain would only hold off until after dinner…
