With Halloween right around the corner, our house has been filled with all kinds of pumpkins lately. If you like making pumpkin pie from scratch, this project is great if you have an extra sugar pumpkin or two. These Festive Pumpkin Vases are the perfect accent for your fall decor—just place them right next to your collection of jack o’lanterns!


  • Sugar pumpkin
  • Paring knife
  • Spoon
  • Flowers
  • Oasis (Floral Foam)

Start by cutting the top off of your sugar pumpkin with a paring knife (as you can see, I tried to do a star pattern, but messed up the end a bit!), then scrape out all of the seeds from the inside of the pumpkin with a spoon. You can rinse and store these seeds later for roasting. Cut the Oasis down to size if necessary to fit inside the pumpkin (making sure you soak it in water before putting it in the pumpkin). Once the Oasis is inside the pumpkin, arrange your flowers and enjoy your new festive pumpkin vase!
