Let me share this pretty pumpkin vase with you. This takes petty fall-themed cut flowers to a whole new level as a table centerpiece.
This DIY pumpkin vase is perfect for your Thanksgiving table or just as a pretty fall-themed piece of decor. These pumpkin flower arrangements would be beautiful on multiple tables during a fall event.
Pumpkin (It can be a real or faux pumpkin)
Flower vase to fit inside the pumpkin (or use a mason jar, tin can, etc.)
Floral foam (optional)
Step one is to cut off the top of the pumpkin and give it a quick clean so the edges are smooth.
Either purchase a floral arrangement or put one together from your garden! Hydrangeas would be pretty or so would mums.
This arrangement in itself is very pretty. But, tuck it into a pumpkin and it's awesome! There are such varieties of pumpkins at your local retailer or pumpkin patches. The perfect pumpkin is the one you love!
Put the pumpkins in a classic vase, small jar or any type of container that will hold your arranged blooms in your pumpkin.
Your pumpkin can be a fake pumpkin and it would also look great! Also, you can use small pumpkins with small jars. Three of those lined up as a centerpiece would be very pretty. Even decorative gourds instead of pumpkins can be used! I'll have to remember that for next year
Don't you love the pretty sunflowers and the cat tails in this bouquet? Not sure if you noticed, but a few of the outdoor grasses also made it into this arrangement. I do love fall foliage! Sometimes we feel we need to use a ton of orange for our fall decor. But, it really isn't always necessary!
Isn't this the coolest pumpkin! The orange and green colors are so muted. It is such a cool look. And, the pattern is totally fun. Look at your local farm stand for fun and funky pumpkins! They don't always have to be bright orange! White pumpkin vases would also be beautiful.
I hope you enjoy this quick tutorial! I do love bringing outside natural elements into my home whenever I can.
