  • White pumpkin

  • Knife

  • Spoon

  • Small container/glass

  • Scissors


  1. Select a pumpkin about eight inches in diameter; cut off the top, and scoop out pulp and seeds.

  2. Place a small container, such as a highball glass, inside the pumpkin.

  3. Trim flowers to fit (we used twelve dahlias, but two dozen carnations would also work), and arrange in the glass.
