Supplies:

  • Faux pumpkin (abundant at the dollar store and craft stores now)
  • Sharp knife
  • Pencil

Directions:

Step 1: Using the pencil, mark a cutting line. You want the opening to be wide enough to place a container inside for the flowers.

Step 2: Cut along the marked line, using nice, even strokes so the separation is clean.

Step 3: Clean up any jagged edges and wipe away any loose foam.

Step 4: Find a container that will fit in the pumpkin that can hold the fresh flowers. If you are using faux flowers, you can always just place them directly in the pumpkin. If using a houseplant, just place the plastic pot into the pumpkin, making sure to use a plastic saucer underneath.

Step 5: Fill with flowers and enough water to keep them fed.
