Want to make one? It’s easier than it looks! Here’s how to create your own pumpkin flower arrangement:

Materials needed:

  • 1 pumpkin
  • vase or other container to hold the flowers
  • fresh flowers and other greenery of your choice
  • carving knife and spoon
  • floral foam (optional)

1. Buy a pumpkin from your local supermarket or farmer’s market.

2. Using the carving knife, cut and remove the top of the pumpkin Then spoon out the seeds. Try to get the pumpkin as clean as possible. If you like, you could paint your pumpkin or carve out a design.

3. Place the vase or container into the pumpkin shell. You can choose to use floral foam inside the vase. Floral foam makes flower arranging easier and neater, but it isn’t necessary. You could just fill the vase with a water and flower food mixture.

4. Cut the flowers to size. Arrange flowers to your liking. Experiment with different flowers and textures. Just have fun with it!

5. Sit back and enjoy! The arrangement should last about a week or longer, depending on the variety of flowers.

 

About Lesley Lowry

I love flowers! I enjoy growing them, learning about them and I love creating bouquets of freshly cut flowers. In our climate where it's winter most of the time, the growing season is way too short, so I have started this blog to get my fix all winter! I encourage you to post regularly on this blog, especially if you're lucky enough to live in a warm climate and can grow flowers all year long. I intend to post a lot of interesting facts and fun stuff about flowers, as well as info on many varieties of flowers.
