A floral pumpkin wreath that acts as a vase is easy to create using fall flowers, berries, and grasses attached to a grapevine wreath base. Using one pumpkin and cutting it in half so that you can create two for a double door. Or, share it with a friend and have a fun craft night together.
Have you seen people use a pumpkin as a vase for their dining room table? I was looking for something fun to create for this year's fall decor and thought of this pumpkin centerpiece idea.
Instead of using it for my dining room, I decided to create a floral pumpkin wreath by cutting an old plastic pumpkin in half, and attaching it to a grapevine wreath.
How to Make a Floral Pumpkin Wreath
Since we have double front doors in our house, cutting one pumpkin in half gave me two perfect pumpkin vases with flat backs.
- Cut the pumpkin in half. It was surprisingly easy to cut this pumpkin in half with an old serrated kitchen knife. Just follow the line along the molding.
- Then cut around the top.
- Use a piece of cardboard and glue it to the back.
- Next, hot glue the pumpkin vase to a grapevine wreath.
- Then add a bit of floral foam inside, which will make it easier to arrange your flowers and other fall floral picks. Any kind of Styrofoam will work here.
Make it Natural
It's easy to find all kinds of faux flowers, berries, and other fall pieces this time of year at any craft store. I bet most of you have some laying around from past projects that you can reuse.
However, you probably have several natural options around your home such as viburnum berries, bittersweet, hydrangea blooms, or some grasses which would look wonderful in this pumpkin wreath. I love to make foraged natural fall wreaths and natural centerpieces during the fall and early winter.
The funny thing is that we just purchased a new front door, with sidelights to help bring more light into the house. I guess I'll have to give one of these floral pumpkin vase wreaths away or move one somewhere else in the house.
