DIY: Pumpkin Flower Vase

Posted by Renee Elliott Tuesday, October 15, 2013 9:17 AM EST


I love having fresh flowers around and these pumpkin vases are the perfect way to add a little bit of a fall vibe to my home!






A pumpkin

Primer spray paint

Colour spray paint

Paint marker or liquid pen

Serrated knife.

Floral foam







STEP 1: With a clean and dried pumpkin, spray it with the primer and set aside to dry.


STEP 2: Spray paint the entire pumpkin with the coloured spray paint and allow to dry. If you want to keep your pumpkin as the white primer then skip this step.


STEP 3: Using a paint marker or liquid pen carefully draw polka dots and set aside to dry.


STEP 4: Cut around the stem of the pumpkin and remove the top of the pumpkin leaving a large hole. Scoop out the inside of the pumpkin.


STEP 5: Cut the floral foam to size so that it fits inside of the pumpkin. Soak the floral foam for 20 seconds and then place in the pumpkin.




STEP 6: Arrange your flowers by cutting them to size and sticking them into the foam until you are happy with the results.
