If you think pumpkins are only good for jack-o’-lanterns, think again.
If you think pumpkins are only good for jack-o’-lanterns, think again. While preparing my home for some out-of-town guests recently, I was looking for a unique fall centerpiece. That’s when inspiration struck. I decided to make a pumpkin floral centerpiece using a hollowed-out pumpkin as a “vase.” By simply carving a hole in a pumpkin, you can display your favorite fall flowers for everyone to see.
These pumpkin centerpieces (done in 30 minutes!) really celebrate the season and bring autumn elegance into my home.
I personally love using real pumpkins, but craft supply stores have craft pumpkins that can be carved as well. It’s just good to note that if you’re planning a party, you may want to do the DIY project the day before, so the pumpkins and flowers are still fresh. But when you’re finished, this centerpiece is sure to brighten any table with bold, fall color.
What You Need:
1. Select seasonal flowers in an autumnal color palette. A variety of sizes and colors will make this piece pop.
Not only does this craft come together quickly, it will make a lovely centerpiece for Halloween or your Thanksgiving spread.
