Botanical Pumpkins - DIY Pumpkin Ideas
It's pumpkin carving season aka Halloween! If you’re looking for some pumpkin carving inspiration, here are some of our favourite DIY botanical pumpkin ideas.
In celebration of pumpkin day, we thought we would try something a little different for Halloween and put our botanical expertise to good use with a couple of DIY pumpkin ideas. These floral pumpkins are super-easy to create and make a wonderful autumnal feature in your home. They'd also be fabulous as a botanical table centrepiece at an autumn wedding!
To create your own pumpkin pot: carve your pumpkin and fill with beautiful autumnal flowers of your choice. Place amongst munchkins (mini pumpkins) for a botanical pumpkin patch feel.
To create a floral halo for your pumpkin this Halloween: punch a circle of holes around the top of your pumpkin using a screwdriver. Cut the stems of your chosen flowers to length and push into the holes gently. Add more holes to thicken up your halo where needed. Simple!
