Autumn has the most beautifully rich colors and I adore seeing the fresh fall bouquets inside stores throughout this time of year. A creative DIY pumpkin vase can be prepared as either a gift, centerpiece or decoration for any autumn soirée and is simple to prepare and inexpensive to assemble, without sacrificing impact.
Choosing a pumpkin of any desired size, carve out a small enough opening at the stem top for an empty aluminum can to slide inside. Scrape the inside of the pumpkin and empty all the remnants out. Fill the aluminum can with water and place it inside the carved out pumpkin. Lastly, trim and assemble a mixture of flowers and place them inside the can so that the bunches of flower heads are popping up out of the top of the pumpkin.
This easy craft can be done with any type of flower or plant or succulent and a variety of pumpkin styles. Smaller pumpkins would make wonderful a hostess gift or an all-inclusive table centerpiece for a dinner party. Light pumpkin-scented fragrances and enjoy the aroma and display of autumn.
