Pumpkin Vase Centerpiece
My favorite season of the year is quickly approaching and I can’t wait to decorate my home with every budget-friendly fall project that Pinterest has to offer lol. To start off my decor this year, I began by making two quick & easy pastel pumpkin vase centerpieces. This easy-to-do project can be used for Thanksgiving parties, fall weddings, and can even be given as a unique hostess gift.
If you are in need of a fast and simple way to spruce up your fall tablescape before your guests arrive, you have come to the right place. :)
As always, if you try this project let me know how yours turns out in the comments below!
1. Gather your materials and find a medium-large sized foam pumpkin.
If you choose to use a real pumpkin for this project, ensure that you are picking out a pumpkin with a flat surface that will stand upright on your table.
2. Use the pumpkin carver or a sharp knife to cut a deep square into the top of your pumpkin. Tug on the pumpkin stem to remove the cutout and use a scraper scoop or spoon to get the middle as clean and clear as possible.
3. Once the middle of the pumpkin has been completely hollowed, paint it your color of choice using acrylic craft paint. Allow it to dry for 15-20 minutes before moving on to the next step.
4. After the paint has dried, cut a piece of floral foam and fit it tightly inside of the pumpkin.
If you are planning to use live flowers, soak your floral foam in water until it is completely saturated. After you place the floral foam into the pumpkin, add an extra few inches of water to make sure it remains moist.
5. Arrange your flowers by securely placing each stem into the floral foam. Continue to fill the foam with flowers until the green surface is completely covered and you are done!
This simple project can be completed by any crafting skill level and can also be transformed throughout the fall season. When Halloween comes around, simply repaint your pumpkin(s) black or purple and replace your brighter arrangement with darker colored flowers.
Happy (almost) Fall Y'all!
