It’s almost Thanksgiving and we’re sure you’re busy putting together all the last minute details. Here’s a quick and easy DIY centerpiece you can create using a small pumpkin and your favorite flowers.

Step-by-step instructions to arrange flowers into a pumpkin

Materials needed

  1. Floral Foam
  2. Floral knife, Small Branch Cutter, Scissors
  3. Small Pumpkin
  4. Flowers of your choice

Step One

Soak the floral foam in a large bowl of water until it is thoroughly saturated.

Step Two

Clean out the pumpkin seeds so the entire cavity is clean of all seeds and seed membranes.

Step Three

Line the cavity with heavy plastic wrap. Trim the excess wrap to the shape of the outside of the pumpkin. You need just enough hanging over to keep the plastic wrap from sliding out of place.

Step Four

Place the floral foam into the lined cavity. (Trim corners as needed for a perfect fit)

Step Five

Using a small branch cutter or scissors cut your flower stems to about 2 inches longer than you need them.

Step Six

Begin arranging – alternating between flower type and filler.


Your centerpiece is ready to be finished off with any sort of additional adornment you’d like to add.

This arrangement should last up to 5 days. If you feel the floral foam may be drying out, use a small watering can with a narrow long spout to add the water directly to the floral foam.
