Oh happy day! Pumpkins, y’all. Pumpkins EVERYWHERE! And if you’re like me you just can’t get enough of them. I love traditional carving pumpkins, Cinderella pumpkins, Fairytale pumpkins… There’s just something so fun and whimsical about them no matter how old I get. So when I saw a really cute pumpkin hack on Pinterest, I just had to try it. It’s a pretty quick one but if you’re looking for a way to brighten up your average pumpkin, you’ll love this easy centerpiece.
Step 1: Pick your punkin’
Step 2: Carve out the top. The bigger the hole, the more you’ll have to fill with flowers to achieve a fuller look, so bear this in mind as you hack away.
Step 4: Spill your guts! My pumpkin was the perfect size to fit in my sink so I didn’t make a huge mess as I scooped out all the insides and soon-to-be delicious seeds.
Step 5: Now this is where I kinda winged it. Some reviews say to put a bowl or a plastic bag inside the pumpkin before filling it with water (for the flowers). Since this is going to be an outside display, I opted to just fill the pumpkin as is.
Step 6: Flower Power! Grab some flowers and cut them down to size. I went for more of a monochromatic look with these orange marigolds that my husband brought home. I like that they’re not a flat or one dimensional flower because they really add volume and texture.
Step 8: ENJOY!
I told you it was easy! How cute would this be as a Thanksgiving or a fun fall get together? Definitely a memorable piece or hostess gift. So Go forth, my pumpkin lovers!
