How To Make A Lasting Pumpkin Floral Centerpiece:
The beautiful DIY pumpkin vases make the perfect pumpkin decorations for Halloween or anytime during the fall season. They look fantastic on your table but you could also use them to brighten up your porch.
Pumpkin Floral Centerpiece Materials:
- Oasis Foam
- Grapefruit Seed Extract (not grapefruit oil)
You can get most of these supplies at your local craft store and grocery store.
Pumpkin Floral Centerpiece Tutorial:
1. Soak your oasis foam for 2-3 hours before you start. You can skip this step if using silk flowers but soaking it well is key to keeping your real flowers hydrated and lasting a long time.
2. Select a pumpkin. A small sugar pumpkin in idea.
3. Cut the stem and surrounding area out of the pumpkin. Using a fun star shape lets the flowers spill out in a pretty way.
4. Scoop out the guts out of pumpkin
5. Put grapefruit seed extract at the bottom of pumpkin. This keeps any bacteria from growing in the water and helps your pumpkin last longer.
6. Cut your oasis block to size and insert into the pumpkin.
7. Stick flowers into the oasis foam to desired heights.
There you have your fun easy diy pumpkin vases. What a fabulous Pumpkin Floral Centerpiece for your dinner table this fall! Monica also shared an emotional story about buying back and renovating her childhood home.
