Here is a simple Step by Step Guide to creating your DIY Floral Pumpkin as a centre piece or display in your home, office or window display. You will need the following ingredients:
- Large pumpkin
- Florist Knife
- 3 stems of Oak Leaves Dyed Red
- 3 stems of Gerbera Acapulco
- 10 stems of Crocosmia Emily Mckenzie
- 8 stems of Physalis Chinese Lanterns
- Plastic container
- Brick of Wet Floral Foam
- Anchor Tape
Please ensure if children partake in this activity, they are under adult supervision.
Top Tip: Depending on how long you anticipate to have / use your table display, will depend on whether you need to use a plastic container. If you only anticipate to use it for one day, then you will not need to use a plastic container. If you are using it for a longer period, I would recommend to use the plastic container.
Top Tip: To reduce the surface area covered by the anchor tape, half the anchor tape that is positioned in the centre of the floral foam using the edges to secure the plastic container.
Due to the size of the Physalis, it is positioned quite low and using shorter stem lengths in the arrangement to create recession.
Top Tip: The stem of the Gerberas are wired to strengthen the wire.
The arrangement can be finished by placing the lid at the base of the pumpkin or wired into the arrangement to create a statement! Whichever you decide, this arrangement is sure to WOW your guests, whether it be at a dinner party, passers by from your window display or at a wedding reception!
