Pumpkin season is in full effect and that means well…everything pumpkin! DUH! I took a trip to Trader Joe’s to pick up some Fall colored florals and greenery + a pumpkin to make my floral arrangement!
Pumpkin ( medium sized )
Bundles of flowers
Greenery fillers ie: eucalyptus
Wet Foam Flower Sponge ( Hobby Lobby, Joanne’s, Michaels )
Plastic Saran Wrap
Dried Wheat ( Hobby Lobby )
1. First you will want to gut your pumpkin as good as you can, once it is empty, take your saran wrap and place it inside the opening of the pumpkin as a protection for the sponge at the bottom.
2. Place your sponge on top of the seran wrap, make sure to completely soak your sponge prior before inserted.
3. Add about 1/2 cup of water on top of the sponge.
4. Insert each floral at a time, rotating the pumpkin to get all sides, think front, back, side & side for each stem. Then greenery, and then add your dried wheat. Tip: Don’t worry about having your stems be the same length, the height dimensions will add texture and make your arrangement appear larger!
