Pumpkin Floral Arrangement

Pumpkin Arrangement

Time to make a fall pumpkin arrangement! Tomorrow is the first day of September and we don’t have any cooler weather yet….but at least we know it’s coming)))

I’ve seen several arrangements made on top of foam pumpkins or even fresh flowers inside a hollowed-out real pumpkin so I thought I’d try my hand at it. The thing about using a real pumpkin is that….it draws gnats! So I opted for a Walmart foam pumpkin.

Foam Pumpkin


Hot Glue



Wood Wool or Spanish Moss

My pumpkin floral arrangement was made with all leftover pieces of florals. You know that stash you keep instead of throwing away leftover pieces))) Well, my stash is quite large and holds flower pieces and greenery for just about all seasons! So I picked out the fall florals like sunflowers and yellow blooms along with some fall greenery. I used leftover ribbon and made a simple bow, attached it to a pick, and inserted it into the Styrofoam.

Hot Glue Gun

I love my cordless glue gun, it’s perfect for projects like the pumpkin floral arrangement. Dab little bunches of wood wool with hot glue and cover up the Styrofoam. Be careful….hot glue is HOT!

So many times a glue gun with a cord is just unhandy as the cord gets in the way or makes the glue gun fall over. I found this cordless glue gun at Harbor Freight Tools and it’s been just right for my craft table.

This past weekend we had to get a new cordless drill and after we got home….we found out that the batteries for the glue gun and drill were the same! That was a great find since now I should always be able to find a battery that is charged)))

hello fall

Fall is my favorite time of the year no doubt. It puts me in the mood for decorating even if it is still blazing hot right now…..cooler weather is coming)))
