Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Leaves burst with vibrant colors, cooler nights, vine ripe pumpkins, hayrides and of course bonfires. If you get excited too, then this sweet DIY pumpkin centerpiece is the perfect addition to your home. This same technique can be made in any container!
The box above came from Hobby Lobby Spring Collection at 90% off but you can choose any container and apply the same steps.
Next grab some foam blocks to hot glue onto the bottom of your container. These came from Dollar Tree, but Walmart or any craft store will have these in all sizes.
Next grab some fall pumpkins in any color. This entire package was at Hobby Lobby at 14.99 with 50% off for fall. The skewers pictured is to poke in the bottom of the pumpkins, the next picture will show how I did this.
Place a little hot glue on the tip of the skewer and then poke it into the bottom of the pumpkin. This will hold the pumpkin in place and the skewer will also provide different heights in the centerpiece.
I wanted my centerpiece to be full so I grabbed this pick to help fill in the gaps. I also used a few pieces of left over greenery from another project. You can use fall leaves, pinecones, or any floral picks of your choice. Cut the pick apart with wire cutters.
Now the fun part!! Place the pumpkins at different heights. This step is a personal preference because depending on the container used, the skewers may need to be trimmed. This can be done with the wire cutters.
I did not hot glue the skewers into the foam. This allows removal and replacement if the placement is not to your liking.
A side bonus too- if you don’t use hot glue then you can remove the pumpkins and use this for other holidays. How cute would this be with evergreen, ornaments and pinecones?
The last step is filling any gaps. My go to is moss. The natural look of it softens the picks and pumpkins. That is it! I hope that you will let me know if you try this and remember these steps can be used for any containter!
