How to Make a Halloween entry and welcome trick

Add some personality to your entry and welcome trick-or-treaters with a pumpkin topiary in the shape of a totem pole. All it takes is a few faux pumpkins, basic craft supplies and a little imagination.


Materials Needed:
  • 3 faux pumpkins
  • spool of 3/8" wide black craft ribbon
  • black acrylic craft paint
  • white acrylic craft paint
  • small craft paintbrush
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • pumpkin-carving tool or sharp knife 

Select Pumpkins

Select three similarly shaped faux pumpkins.


Cut Hole

Use a sharp knife or pumpkin-carving knife to cut a hole in the bottom of the first pumpkin. Make sure the hole is big enough for the stem of the second pumpkin to fit into. Repeat this step on the bottom of the second pumpkin.


Adhere Ribbon

Cut random lengths of craft ribbon and hot glue them to each of the pumpkins to form mouths.


Paint Eyes

Paint eyes on each of the pumpkins using a small paintbrush and some black and white acrylic paint.


Hot Glue Pumpkins

Use hot glue to attach the first pumpkin to the second and the second pumpkin to the third.
