An Easy Solution to My Dead Plants

Well I let my other plants on the front porch go to pot too (hehe get it?)

So in order to fix that, here is what I did.

I took some moss and pretended it was hay, some fake Fall leaves, sat a pumpkin on top, tied a ribbon, and called it a masterpiece.

Brilliant right? :)

Oh yea, and this other little pot got a new friend because the plant was dead as well.

Fancy smancy, and no proof of previous plant life is even noticeable.

Nothing huge, but at least it’s an improvement from what was there. Oh yea, and it was free!  Yay! :)

P.S. – I still haven’t put anything in the big red planters from when I killed the trees, in case you were wondering.  I think any living plant should be afraid to come take up residence at our house.

  1. Genius. Since I manage to kill just about any plant…even weeds…this is a great option!

  2. I LOVE your…”masterpiece”!!! and in my household…i would have ALOT of pumpkins in pots!!! I’m sooo bad at keeping plants alive!!! LOL!!

  3. CUUUUUUTE!

  4. LOVE IT…they look great!

  5. Slime mold and Japanese beetles killed all of the plants and bushes in my front flower beds. Last year I removed everything. I still haven’t replanted it. Hmmm…maybe three giant pumpkins in pots? I can do that :)

  6. Very festive! How about a pumpkin topiary for your red pots? Stack two or three, you could even paint your house # on them.

  7. I’m the worst with plants- I feel so sorry for any that come home with me! But I like your masterpiece- very creative!! My porch has three pretty, but completely undecorated pumpkins sitting on it. Jimmy said he expected more- ha!

  8. I love what you can do with ‘dead’ plants!! They look beautiful.

  9. Great solution! The dead plants around here are lining up begging for a make over. It’s sad how I move to FL and my green thumb turned brown.

  10. They look great! What a fabulous idea!

  11. Hey that is a pretty great idea! It is so hard to keep anything alive out here! It’s so cute too! I love it Emily! :)

  12. Love what you did, those masterpieces should last awhile right? Think I am going to try that, since I kill my potted plants too. Even with a watering can RIGHT next to it, shame on me.

    GREAT idea! I sure wish you would do something with that big red pot because I have the same EXACT pot, probably just different dead plants. Would love to see how you dress it up for the season.

  14. Great idea, since I kill every plant I get my hands on. But since I didn’t have any planters, my dead plants are in the ground and require pullling… at some point… maybe today ;)

  15. Great idea to put little pumpkins in your pots! Cute!

  16. OMG, what a great idea – My garden is more like a graveyard so I think I will follow your example

  17. Hehe! I killed my front porch plants too and turned them into pumpkin topiaries! I think yours are super cute!!

    Stopping by from HoH!

  18. What a perfect solution to the dead plant conundrum! Visiting from Frugal Friday :)

  19. Finally, something to do with the dead plants! I always feel guilty but now I can at least use them for something good before I toss them Great idea!

  20. I too took advantage of dead plants in a planter and turning it into halloween decor. Great minds think alike. hehe…

  21. great idea for us plant killers. Can you please post an idea for Christmas in a couple months???!??

  22. Very festive and great idea!!

  23. Great idea! I always manage to kill my potted plants too. I have started putting my yard stakes in my flower pots instead of out in the yard. Right now I have two cute little pumpkins in my monogrammed flower pots on the front porch:)
