sunflower cream pumpkin arrangement

Fall is a time to decorate with pumpkins and sunflowers. This pumpkin arrangement is a balance of rich, natural tones, which are perfect for the dining table!
Step 1

Cut the top off the crafting pumpkin with a hot knife. Once the top is cut, set it aside.
TIP: Be very careful when working with a hot knife because it is extremely hot and sharp. Also, work very slow as you cut and ideally do this in a well-ventilated area to avoid the melted plastic fumes.

Step 2

Cut some floral foam to fit inside the hollow pumpkin and use hot glue to hold it in place.

Step 3

Cut the individual stems off the bushes with a wire cutter.

Step 4

Begin to push sunflower stems into the foam. Keep some low to the pumpkin and others spreading out like they are reaching for the sun.
TIP: Bend or curve the stems slightly before placing them in the floral foam as this is what makes the faux stem look as it does in nature.

Step 5
Fill in the empty space with the berry and button mum stems.
TIP: If you want the stems to permanently hold, add hot glue when inserting them in the floral foam. If you want to incorporate the stem of the pumpkin into this arrangement, you can hot glue it to the side of the pumpkin.
