Turn a pretty pumpkin into a high-style vase for this seasonal floral arrangement that's formal enough for gala Thanksgiving dinner.

Supplies

  • Medium-size pumpkin
  • Flowers, sprigs of bittersweet, leaf stems, and twigs
  • Metal soup can or similar container
  • Sharp knife
  • Large spoon for scooping out seeds

Instructions

  1. In the top of the pumpkin, use a sharp knife to carve a hole a bit bigger in diameter than the metal can.
  2. Discard the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and flesh with a large spoon.
  3. Wedge the can (or container) into the pumpkin. Fill the container with water, about 3/4 full.
  4. Arrange the flowers, leaf sprigs, and berries in your hand. Cut off all stems to an even length and insert the stems into the water container.
  5. Tip: Keep water filled on a daily basis and remove and replace any wilted blooms.
