How to Make a Floral Pumpkin

Cute, trendy and simple, a Floral Pumpkin is the perfect piece for your home decor! Add your favorite colors of floral and ribbon to give it that perfect fall touch.
  • 1 Cut top of pumpkin

    Using an X-Acto® knife, cut a large opening at the top of the pumpkin.

  • 2 Decorate surface

    Using multi-surface acrylic paint, decorate the surface of your pumpkin if desired.

  • 3 Make a bow

    While waiting for pumpkin to dry, make a large bow using ribbon of choice.

  • 4 Add foam

    Once pumpkin is dry, cut and place floral foam to fit inside pumpkin.

  • 5 Add bow

    Using a chenille stem, wrap the center of the bow and stick the chenille stem into the center of the foam, allowing the bow to flow out of each side of the pumpkin.

  • 6 Add floral

    Arrange floral embellishments around the bow, sticking them into the floral foam and making sure they are secure.
