Step one

As you usually would, cut a hole in the top of your pumpkin using a sharp knife. If you aren't too confident in your pumpkin carving abilities use a red wipeable marker to draw out the circle first.

If you need any tips on how to carve a pumpkin check out our guide. 

Step two

Scoop out the insides using a spoon or an ice cream scoop and then place your wet florist's foam into the middle of your pumpkin. 

Step three

Arrange your blooms in the foam, just as you would if you were arranging them in a normal vase. And voila you are all done!!

You will need:

  • Flowers
  • A marker pen
  • A metal skewer
  • Scissors 

Step one

Use a wipeable marker to draw a line of dots around your pumpkin where you would like your flowers to sit. 

Step two

Take a metal skewer and poke holes in the dots, making sure the holes are big enough to push a stem into.

Step three

Trim the stems of your flowers so they are at an angle and then poke them into the holes. All done! No carving needed. If you would like more no carve pumpkin ideas we have a whole gallery to get you inspired.
