Easy DIY Floral Pumpkin Decoration

I’m about to blow your mind with this ultra easy floral pumpkin decor that you’ll be able to use year after year.

DIY Floral Pumpkins

My inspo came from real pumpkins at a local florist where they’d cut off the top and hot glued succulents inside. The cheapest option started at $100.  I knew that with a visit to my local craft store, I could make my own for a fraction of the price, and I ended up making THREE for only $30! Check out my Amazon idea list if you want to order your supplies and get them quickly- it’ll cost about $50 if you want to make 5 pumpkins using the items on my list.

I was feeling very anti-orange and  I wanted my party set up to scream “grown up” and “sophisticated” so I chose black foam pumpkins. But you can get the look with whatever color combo you want… I’ve seen foam pumpkins come in black, white, and orange, but you could also spray paint them metallic if you’re feeling adventurous.

Supplies Needed

  • Foam pumpkins
  • Silk/ faux flowers (I used premade bouquets because they provided a variety of shapes and colors that went well together, plus I just happened to find them on sale for 40% off!)
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun

That’s it! You probably already have a glue gun & scissors, so all you really need are the foam pumpkins & the flowers. You can do the entire project in about 30 minutes. Yep, this is insanely easy!

Step 1- I cut the flowers off the arrangements, and placed them on the pumpkins to get an idea of where I wanted to glue them.

Step 2- Make a hole in the pumpkin where you’re going to place the flower. I just used the tip of the scissors for this.

Step 3- Fill the hole with hot glue.

Step 4- Place the flower in the hole and hold for a few seconds while the glue cools.

Step 5- Repeat!

When I’d placed all of the flowers I planned on placing, I went through and used the remaining flowers to fill in the gaps and make my pumpkins look a little more lush.

And that’s it!
