Welcome to September’s Thrifty Style Team episode! To be completely transparent, I almost didn’t do this “Mini DIY Pumpkin Patch” idea because I thought it might look ridiculous. Well, I was very wrong. I simply couldn’t get over how cute it turned out, and I actually had my entire family come out to see it immediately at night time just to show them how cool their mom/wife was 😆. They were pretty impressed, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we are.

Do you love pumpkin patches as much as I do? We usually get to see many of them on our way out to the cider mill every fall. It’s kind of like when you see cows…you just gotta say, “Look, there’s a pumpkin patch 😲!!” Those orange babies really stand out amongst the green vines, and it’s spectacular.
That’s exactly what I wanted this “Mini DIY Pumpkin Patch” to do…stand out, and actually look like the pumpkin patches we see in beautiful rural Michigan. I think the fairy lights really make it pop, don’t you? What do you think about the “Creeping Jenny” vines? Have you ever tried it in your garden before?
Believe it or not, when I ordered 2 of these Creeping Jenny hanging plants late spring, I didn’t realize they were perennials. I added them to our white planter boxes not knowing I could plant them in the garden, and just thinking they would be fun to watch “creep”. I am so excited to spread them out in our front rocks and watch Jenny creep around…
How to Create Mini DIY Pumpkin Patch
So, to make this little Mini DIY Pumpkin Patch, all I had to do was order a few faux mini pumpkins, and fairy lights, which I already had on hand. Both sources are below.
I simply spread the fairy lights all over the Creeping Jenny which was actually still in a hanging pot container (I removed the hanger part). That’s why the “patch” seems like it is elevated.
Then I spread the mini pumpkins all over the lights and “Jenny” trying to make it look like a legit pumpkin patch.
NOTE: When pumpkins grown in a real pumpkin patch, they usually end up on their side, or even upside down. I tried to portray that here.
Ahhh…I just love it.
