Okay, this post has been one of the most fun to create for you. It checked off a few fall bucket list items: carving a pumpkin, buy a chunky cable knit and make a fall floral arrangement. If you’re celebrating Fall with a dinner party, getting married or just love decorating with pumpkins, this pumpkin flower arrangement is going to tickle your gourds by channeling your creativity. The best part is, it leaves you with a beautiful and unique way to display flowers! This post will teach you how to make a pumpkin flower arrangement.
How to Make a Pumpkin Flower Arrangement
What you’ll need:
A small to medium-sized pumpkin, mine is about 8 inches in diameter || wet flower foam || a flower knife (or scissors) || floral moss || saran wrap || water || a variety of flowers (if you want a refresher on flower arranging, check here)
- Pick your pumpkin: I used an heirloom pumpkin found at Trader Joes
- Carve the top off with a sharp knife and remove the insides of the pumpkin.
- Using a large piece of saran wrap, line the inside of your pumpkin to protect against potential water leaking.
- Soak a piece of wet flower foam that’s roughly the size of the interior of the pumpkin, in water until thoroughly saturated, and place it inside the interior of the pumpkin. Fill the cavity of the pumpkin up with water once it’s in place.
- Using our flower arranging tips (or your own creativity) firmly grip the stem of the flower and push it into the flower foam. It’s okay if you didn’t get the length of the flower right or place it in the right spot, simply take it out and replace it. Wet Flower foam is very forgiving.
- Continue until all of the flowers have been used or the pumpkin looks full enough.
- Using the floral moss, tuck bits and pieces into the base to hide any gaps between the pumpkin and the flowers.
