Make this floral arrangement in a pumpkin

PP Make a floral arrangement in a pumpkin - Flower arranging - Craft -

Presented in a pumpkin, this autumnal arrangement makes a stunning centrepiece, or Halloween decoration. Click here to see a larger photo of the finished arrangement.

You will need:

● pumpkin
● sharp knife
● vase or jar to fit inside
● scissors
● 3 hydrangeas
● leaves, in shades of green and red
● 2 or 3 sprigs of berries, such as hypericum

Step 1
Cut the top off the pumpkin and scoop out the flesh. Make sure that the bottom is flat inside. Position the container inside the pumpkin and fill with water.

Step 2

Trim the hydrangea stems so that the flowers sit on the edge of the pumpkin.


Step 3
Tuck in a few leaves around the edge and in the centre, to fill in the gaps between the hydrangeas.

Step 4

Add the berries and tuck leaves into any gaps that remain - see main photo, above.
