What You'll Need:
Flowers (well, just SOMETHING to fill the pumpkin)
Knife (to cut pumpkin)
Spoon (to clean the inside of the pumpkin)
First thing’s first: we have to prep our pumpkin. Wipe off the pumpkin to get any dirt and soil off from when you bought it. Also, don't worry if your pumpkin has any little white spots like mine did, chances are your flowers or whatever you choose to add later will cover them.
You’re going to want to cut the top of your pumpkin so that you can A. clean it out and B. put flowers inside of it. So, I would suggest making the hole about the size of your hand. You might want to sketch a line to cut so you get a smooth circle cut.
It will look something like this when you're done.
Finally, find some flowers and cut them so they fit into the pumpkin well. This will make it look like the flowers are growing from the pumpkin, as well as cover up any jagged cuts you made earlier.
Ta-da! You’re done with your pumpkin centerpiece! As with many DIY projects, you can make this one as simple or complex as you desire, so feel free to customize your centerpiece however you want! You can start with a white pumpkin if you’re not a fan of the orange, which would be adorable as well!
