Decorate your table for fall with these blooming faux mum pumpkins.

Materials Needed

  • foam ball
  • knife
  • spoon
  • faux mums
  • hot glue gun + glue
  • scrap wood

Prep the Foam

Cut off the base and the top of the foam ball so that is has two flat surfaces. Use a spoon to create a crevice in the top of the foam ball. 

Add the Mums

Remove all of the faux mums from the stems, leaving the small green plastic pieces at the base of each flower intact. Attach each flower to the ball by poking the plastic into the foam. To create a stem, attach a piece of scrap wood to the top with hot glue.
