Pumpkin Vase

Source: Martha Stewart Living, October 1998


Pumpkins wear many hats this time of year, appearing in pies and soups as well as in centerpieces. Here's another use: Transform one into a colorful homemade vase.


  • Oasis floral foam

  • Pumpkin

  • Paint bucket or any plastic container

  • Seasonal flowers, dried leaves, and berries


  1. Place a cube of Oasis floral foam inside the container, thinning it to fit. Press the foam down to make it level, and drench it with water (enough so that a small pool collects at the bottom of the container).

  2. Arrange seasonal flowers, dried leaves, and berries as desired -- we used lady's mantle, dahlias, maple leaves, and hypericum berries.
