How to Make a Simple Thanksgiving Centerpiece
It’s almost Thanksgiving and we’re sure you’re busy putting together all the last minute details. Here’s a quick and easy DIY centerpiece you can create using a small pumpkin and your favorite fall flowers.
Step-by-step instructions to arrange flowers into a pumpkin to create a Thanksgiving centerpiece:
- Floral Foam
- Floral knife, Small Branch Cutter, Scissors
- Small Pumpkin
- Flowers of your choice
Soak the floral foam in a large bowl of water until it is thoroughly saturated.
Clean out the pumpkin seeds so the entire cavity is clean of all seeds and seed membranes.
Line the cavity with heavy plastic wrap. Trim the excess wrap to the shape of the outside of the pumpkin. You need just enough hanging over to keep the plastic wrap from sliding out of place.
Place the floral foam into the lined cavity. (Trim corners as needed for a perfect fit)
Using a small branch cutter or scissors cut your flower stems to about 2 inches longer than you need them.
Begin arranging – alternating between flowers and filler.
Your centerpiece is ready to be finished off with any sort of additional adornment you’d like to add.
This arrangement should last up to 5 days. If you feel the floral foam may be drying out, use a small watering can with a narrow long spout to add the water directly to the floral foam.
