This easy DIY fall decor project has to be one of the easiest fall diy projects we’ve ever made! It only takes a few materials and an hour of your time, but the end result is worth it!

What You’ll Need

Pumpkin Prep

Hey, if you come across the perfect size, tall and narrow, and just the right color, please give me a heads up! I’ve been on the hunt but couldn’t find it anywhere, so I ended up painting some in the shade I wanted.

So, I grabbed the craft paint that I already had – a mix of Territorial Beige, Vanilla Ice Cream, Tropic Orange, and just a touch of Jack-o-lantern by Apple Barrel. The color turned out perfect! I also went ahead and added a layer of clear sealer to keep it safe from any moisture.

Flower Prep

While I was waiting for the pumpkins to dry, it was time to get my flowers ready. I grabbed my trusty tin snips and started separating and sorting the flowers for both planters.

Put it all Together

Just grab a couple of your Amazon boxes (or any small containers that are the same size and can fit inside your planter), and cut them down to the size you want. Then, simply trace and cut the floral black for planters and lay it on top of the box inside the planter. Easy peasy!

Alright, let’s get started! Pop your pumpkin right in the middle and start filling in the flowers around it. Don’t forget to repeat the same process on the second planter.
