Another easy DIY coming your way today. This one is so easy, it’s embarrassing! I’m showing you how to turn a plastic pumpkin into a planter/vase. I have seen these in stores and online, and thought…I can do that!
All you need is a plastic pumpkin and a sharp knife. I bought my pumpkin from a craft store years ago…but this one is similar. I took an old steak knife and cut a hole in the top! I wanted the hole to be big enough to put a jar inside. Start small….it’s easier to keep making the hole bigger rather than cutting it too big from the start. (mine started way too small!)
You want a fairly decent size opening. The flowers look better, and lay better if it’s not too small.
Once you have your hole cut, it’s ready to hold a jar with flowers!! I have used it to hold a bouquet of my dahlias, on the step of my shed with zinnias, and you could also pop a small mum inside!
This would also be great just holding dried flowers (hydrangeas of course) or branches, and skip the jar of water. It also would make a great centerpiece for Thanksgiving!
Hope you enjoyed this quick DIY! Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!
