I hosted a bridal shower for my friend last weekend and found this cute idea for easy, affordable fall decor! With Halloween two days away and Thanksgiving around the corner, these pumpkin vases are perfect for every occasion!
Here is what you’ll need:
1 pumpkin (not the mini size, the small size)
1 carving tool
1 bouquet of flowers (I got mine from Trader Joes for only $3.99!)
Draw a circle around the stem of the pumpkin with the sharpie just big enough to fit the flowers. You don’t want it to be too big.
Using the carving tool, cut the pumpkin along your marked line.
Take the top off and throw it away, you don’t need it.
Clean out the guts of the pumpkin using the scoop. Get it as clean as possible!
Run water in the pumpkin to clean out any excess gunk
Trim flowers to the right height so only the flowers (not the stems) are showing.
Put the flowers in the pumpkin, add water, and you’re done!
I did mine last week and they are still looking good! Dress up your mantle, front porch, or make them for the centerpieces. These cuties look so nice! Plus, people will go crazy over them!
Here is how one of my vases turned out (I made 3 total):
