Pumpkin Vase

Today I'm going to share with you a lovely way to transform your boring pumpkin into a charming, colorful addition to your seasonal decor. This idea comes from the 2007 November edition of Martha Stewart Living Magazine.

Tools and Materials:
Cylinder vase
Pumpkin-carving tool

1) Carve an opening at the top of your pumpkin. (Note: be sure to make the hole opening large enough to fit the entire width of your vase down in).
2) Scoop out and discard pulp and seeds.
3) Fit vase inside pumpkin and fill three-quarters of the way with water.
4) Cut ends of flower stems off diagonally to appropriate length.
5) Arrange flowers inside vase. (I used a autumn seasonal bouquet mix, but you can also include pressed leaves or berries).
