These flower arrangements made in a hollow pumpkin are the cutest! They are perfect for Halloween and easily carry over into November for fall decorating.
My husband taught his floral design students how to make these pumpkin flower arrangements.
First you cut the top of the pumpkin off. You don't need it anymore since your pumpkin is essentially now a vase. Next scoop out all of the seeds and stringy strands until the inside is pretty clean like this.
You will put floral foam (amazon affiliate link) inside the pumpkin to hold water and the flowers. Once you position the moistened floral foam, start adding flowers until you get a full rounded shape with some height in the center (aim for about 1.5 times the height of the pumpkin). If you are making a centerpiece, it should not have a front and a back. You want it to look good all around since it will be seen on all sides.
This pumpkin flower arrangement makes such a lovely fall centerpiece.
My husband demonstrating how to make floral pumpkin arrangements at Pumpkin Daze at the arboretum. My seven year old made the square styrofoam jack-o-lantern by carving a solid block of styrofoam. He brought his jack-o-lantern to decorate at the arboretum too. He's such a sweet and creative kid and he is always making something.
One of my husband's students helped demonstrate at Pumpkin Daze and created this elegant pumpkin arrangement with floral sprays extending from each side.

I never knew you could use a pumpkin as a flower holder! I have always wanted to do something with our leftover pumpkins every year. After Halloween, we tend to have a lot of pumpkins because we always join the competition in our subdivision on whose house has the best decorations. We always throw out the leftover pumpkins because we do not really know what we would do with it. But now that I have read your blog, I would definitely turn our leftover pumpkins into flower holders!

Flowers have a calming effect on a person because they trigger dopamine, which is the feel-good hormone. Therefore, when your friends and loved ones receive flowers from you, they’ll feel special and appreciate your gesture.
