I’m not always a planner. I plan my everyday life about a week at a time, and sometimes I don’t even accomplish that. I do, however, plan for the big stuff…vacations, visits from my kids, and holidays. I’m already planning for Thanksgiving, so I’m sharing some mini pumpkin flower arrangements that can be customized to go with your favorite décor. Use whatever flowers and greenery you like or have on hand…and of course, use the pumpkin color you like best. I chose little white pumpkins, white berries, russet mums, and rosemary. Read on to find out how to put these little cuties together.

Mini Pumpkin Flower Arrangements Supplies Needed:

*I had no blooms left in my garden, so I bought what I needed at the grocery. I purchased one bunch of mums, two bunches of eucalyptus, and one bunch of white berries. The only thing I had on hand was fresh rosemary, so I used that too. All this was just enough for four pumpkins.

How to Assemble the Pumpkin Flower Arrangements

  • Soak about half of a block of floral foam in water for a few minutes.
  • With a sharp knife, cut approximately the top third off each pumpkin. Slice straight through the pumpkins. Don’t use a ceramic chef’s knife for cutting the pumpkins. I promise you it will break!

  • Scoop the seeds out of the pumpkin bottoms with a spoon.
  • Tear off a small piece of press ‘n seal to line each pumpkin. Place the sticky side down and press it into the pumpkin holes.
  • Trim off the excess press ‘n seal with scissors.
  • Cut pieces of the wet floral foam to fit the hole of each pumpkin.
  • Add more water to each piece of floral foam. You want them wet, but not wet enough to overflow.

  • Prepare your flowers and greenery by cutting the stems to about 3 or 4 inches long.
  • Begin by placing pieces of greenery around the outside edges of the floral foam.

  • Fill in the outside edges of each arrangement with blooms.
  • Use the rest of the blooms, greenery, or berries to fill in the top of each pumpkin.
  • Try to make the top of each pumpkin as rounded as possible.
  • Stand back and admire your handy-work!

I love the way these mini pumpkin flower arrangements turned out. From start to finish, the four pumpkins took about an hour to arrange, and I enjoyed every minute. You can definitely make these up a few days in advance. If you prepare your pumpkins first, the arrangements will last four to five days…especially if you use mums.

By the way, I recently heard from a reader who was making 30 of these arrangements for an event she was hosting!
