DIY pumpkin centerpiece

Here’s a little tidbit about me: I love fall…especially October.  Maybe I’m biased because it’s my birthday month, but whatever it is, I love this month.  Because of this, I’ve been getting in the fall spirit lately: making apple cider, acorn squash, lighting pumpkin spice candles…all of the wonderful goodies that come along with this season.

Well yesterday as I was picking up some things for dinner, I just couldn’t pass up the gorgeous flowers on display at Trader Joe’s.  A few bouquets and several pumpkins later, and we now have this fabulous centerpiece.
Want to make one of your own?  Well here’s a secret: it’s SUPER easy.  All you’ll need is:
 
  1. Pumpkin
  2. Flowers
  3. Vase (that fits inside the pumpkin)
  4. Knife
  5. Flower food
Step 1: Cut a large hole in the top of the pumpkin
Step 2: Clean the seeds out of the pumpkin & put the vase inside
 
Step 3: Add water & flower food to the vase
 
Step 4: Fill with flowers
 
Step 5: Surround with several smaller pumpkins, then enjoy your handiwork!
