House Number Pumpkins

Welcome friends, family and guests to your home with these house number pumpkins.

Round Up Your Supplies

You will need: pumpkins/a knife or drill/floral vials/fall bouquets/newspaper/paper towels/pencil and scissors.

Size Check

Sketch out the number on the pumpkin with a pencil. With a knife or drill, make a hole angled downward. The hole should be large enough for the end cap of the floral vial to sit flush with the pumpkin.

Fill the Floral Vials

Cut a few blooms off of a bouquet, and add them to a water-filled floral vial.

Taking Shape

Make a hole every few inches for the floral vials. Be sure the flowers are touching one another to create a uniform look.

The Number Three

I find it is easiest to drill a couple of holes and then add the flowers; checking on the overall shape as I go. You will need to wipe off any excess pumpkin after drilling the holes.

Ongoing Maintenance

You can replenish the water as necessary to the floral vials and replace the flowers as needed throughout the season.
