How to Create A Fresh Pumpkin Flower Arrangement
It's that time of the year where pumpkins are everywhere. They can be found at your local supermarket, farmer's markets and pumpkin patch! Pumpkins are tasty and make delicious pies and other baked goods, but they can also be used to create a festive container for fresh flowers. A fresh pumpkin flower arrangement is a great way to add some colour and beauty to your home during the fall season, especially around Halloween! There are many colourful, seasonal flowers, like sunflowers, roses and calla lilies, available at your local Grower Direct store and online.
Here are the materials you need to make a fresh pumpkin arrangement:
Pumpkin (or other seasonal squash)
Assortment of seasonal flowers, branches and foliage
Shears to trim off the ends of the flowers
You don't need to be a florist to create your own pumpkin arrangement, as you can see in this tutorial video. http://youtu.be/uD9dDeIy9lY
Just have fun with it! You can decorate the pumpkin first before using it as a vase. Add some paint and glitter, if you please. You can even include some spider webs and spiders to create a Halloween-themed pumpkin arrangement.
But of course, if you feel like this is too much work, you could always just buy some flowers from GrowerDirect.com that already come in a pumpkin container!
