Pumpkin Decorating Idea

October for me means pumpkin decorating! And not the scary spooky kind!

Why not create a pumpkin floral display and turn your 🎃 into a vase!

Here’s our easy to follow tutorial…

First you’ll need a pumpkin! We bought three from our local supermarket.

Next, find a plastic pot smaller than the pumpkin you’re using. I used an empty yoghurt pot! There’s probably something perfectly suitable in your plastic recycling bin.

Draw around the diameter of your pot on top of your pumpkin

Dig out the middle of your pumpkin, be careful not to go out of the edges of where you’ve drawn

Optional – Paint or decorate your your pumpkin a colour of your choice, I went for copper paint!

Once dry, pop your pot in your pumpkin and you’ve got yourself a makeshift vase.

Hope you loved this pumpkin decorating idea! If you make one I’d love to have a peek! Tag us on facebook or instagram with @idohandmadeuk or send us an email

Happy October everyone!
