Pumpkin Vase Flower Arrangement Tutorial {in 5 minutes or less}

Pumpkin Vase Flower Arrangement Tutorial
{in 5 minutes or less}


When a talented friend of mine told me that she uses those fake pumpkins from craft stores to make flower arrangements and table center pieces, I knew I had to try it out for myself!

Aside from the fact that the flowers from my garden are almost dead, I am still in love with the end result.  Just imagine when I buy fresh flowers for this arrangement!


Ready to make your own?!


SUPPLIES:
Fake carvable pumpkin {purchased at Michael's}
Small vase {from Dollar Tree}
Steak knife for carving
Flowers from your garden

I made one white and one orange pumpkin--not sure which one is my favorite.


Just like you are carving a real pumpkin, cut out the lid--be sure the opening is large enough to slip the vase through.


Place your vase into the center of the pumpkin.
Add water to the vase.


You only want the flower {not the stems} to show in this arrangement--so trim down the stems.  And then arrange your flowers--THAT"S IT!!!


  

Happy Halloween Crafting!

I will be linking this project to these fabulous LINK PARTIES!

Cute! I saw this ultra rad pumpkin idea somewhere at some point, but never tried it. Basically, it was mini and medium sized pumpkins decoupaged with black/white damask print.
I would love to see a tutorial on how to make this your way because I dont know where to start!

I've been waiting to do this all week except I'm going to use Styrofoam and fake flowers so they will last longer. Michaels also has black pumpkins and glitter ones that look fun.

How pretty, I think I saw something similar in a magazine, and I wanted to try it.

What a fun idea. I always thought a pumpkin with a geranium in it would be ideal. I once used a red cabbage plant too. Looked so pretty against the orange.

Too sweet! And you make it look easy!

Just wanted to say thank you for posting this! I LOVE it, its soo gorgeous I had to buy my own fake pumpkins to make some of my own. :)
Also wanted to thank you, because I had no idea there were fake carve-able pumpkins! That made me so happy, because this year I decided I wanted to carve my kids faces in our pumpkins! And im so sentimental I knew I would hate having to eventually throw them away.. so when I read this post, I knew I HAD to buy the fake ones to carve. SO wonderful. Thank you again so much!!

And not to spam you or anything, but if you'd like to see how they turned out here is the link:

I love how the flowers are arranged! Perhaps I'll give this a try, then maybe I can be like those skilled florists in Indianapolis I met the other day. I'll be looking forward to more tutorials like this! More power to your blog!

You did an amazing job with arranging the flowers. I think this is such a fun and very interesting way to arrange different flowers. I think hydangeas would look great in this kind of arrangement as well. Great job! :)
