Romantic Floral Pumpkins for Halloween – The Easy Way
We have a gorgeous and -best of all- EASY and quick DIY idea to decorate your home for Halloween. It has been published on Glitter Guide! (We’re blushing!) This fall, we’re pretty much into a softer, romantic color palette and so our stylist Camille & I thought it would be fun to create pumpkins for grown-ups this year! Because yes, Halloween can be more than cheap candy and scary jack-o-lanterns.
I know you guys are busy so this one is a quick DIY project that ANYBODY can nail in only about 15 minutes. Busy gals and overwhelmed moms – we thought of you.
What you’ll need to make your Pumpkins:
– Pumpinks: We’re really into white pumpkins and light minty green ones. We also found some soft peachy orange pumpkins at the market. They really create a nice palette together.
– Green Floral Foam spheres (these you can find at any gardening center)
– A bunch of flowers. You can get creative here. We’d love to see your arrangements! TIP: Go to the farmer’s market to buy your flowers, it’s cheaper than going to the florist.
This is our flower selection if ever you’d like to recreate this exact look:
– Blushing Bride
– Leucadendron Plumosum Spray
– Leucadendron Safari Sunset
– Amaranthus Hot Biscuit
(Decor elements: Our Boucherouite pillows here, baskets here, and ridiculously good smelling soy candles right here)
Step 1: Cut the top of your pumpkin, don’t make the opening too wide, only as big as you need for your bouquet.
Step 2: Remove the seeds using a large spoon.
Step 3: Immerse your foam spheres in water. Let them soak for a few minutes so that they’ll absorb as much water as possible.
Step 4: Insert 1 or 2 foam spheres inside the pumpkin. You’ll need one or 2 depending on the size of your pumpkin.
Step 5: Insert the stems into the foam balls to create your flower arrangement.
There you go! You have a gorgeous floral pumpkin. If you feel your flowers need more water, just add water inside the pumpkin.
Camille & I styled our friend’s Ariane reading nook with our floral pumpkins and we really love how it turned out!
Oh, and her fluffy cat, Rico, really liked them too apparently! 🙂
You can mix your floral pumpkin with uncarved pumpkins of different sizes and start decorating your entrance, or coffee table. You could also create a very pretty centerpiece for your dinner table. Thanksgiving is not that far away guys!
If you like the décor styling make sure to head to the shop for these gorgeous Boucherouite pillows, cutest baskets, cozy throws & leather poufs. That pretty gold chair is from C2b.
They really create a stunning romantic feel. How pretty would they be for a fall wedding decor too!! If you make some floral pumpkins, please tag us via Instagram, we’d LOVE to see your creations!
Have fun! – Stephanie
