Ready to get started? Let’s go!
Step 1: Choose your pumpkin
You can use a real or a fake pumpkin for this project, depending on your preference and budget. If you use a real pumpkin, make sure it’s fresh and has a flat bottom so it can stand on its own. If you use a fake pumpkin, you can find one that matches your color scheme or paint it yourself.
Step 2: Prepare your floral foam
Measure the size of the foam block and cut it to size with a serrated knife. Center the foam on top of the pumpkin press the foam into the stem and secure it closely to the pumpkin. If it’s not secure enough for you; use floral tape to secure it more. Soak the foam in water if you’re using fresh flowers, or skip this step if you’re using artificial ones.
Step 3: Arrange the floral stems
Start by inserting some greenery picks around the base. The largest and tallest stems are in the center of the foam, creating a focal point. Then add smaller and shorter stems around the edges, filling in any gaps and creating a balanced arrangement. You can use any fall flowers you like, such as dried hydrangeas, sunflowers, mums, dahlias, roses, or carnations. You can also add some greenery, berries, pinecones, or other fall accents to add some texture and variety.
Step 4: Add embellishments
Finally, you can add some embellishments to your flower pumpkin arrangement to make it extra special. You can use ribbon, twine, lace, beads, buttons, stickers, or anything else you have on hand. You can wrap them around the pumpkin, glue them on top, or tie them in a bow. You can also add some leaves, pine cones, berries, or other natural elements to complement the flowers. Use your imagination and have fun!
And that’s it! You’ve just made a beautiful flower pumpkin arrangement that will brighten up your home for the fall season. You can display it on your porch, your mantel, your table, or anywhere else you like. You can also make more than one and give them as gifts to your friends and family. They’ll love this thoughtful and creative gesture!
