DIY Rustic Pumpkin Vase + Decorating with Fresh Flowers

WOW! Check out this stunning DIY Rustic Pumpkin Vase that anyone can do! So pretty for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving!! http://www.whatroseknows.com This fall has been the season of decorating with fresh flowers for me. I can't seem to get enough of them and I wish I had discovered my love of decorating with fresh flowers a long time ago. I think most people tend to accessorize their homes with fresh flowers during the springtime because it's a way of welcoming new life and the new season. This autumn, I'm decorating with fresh flowers to bring in the warm colors of the season and celebrate my favorite time of year.

So pretty for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving!! http://www.whatroseknows.com This past week I received a complimentary Deluxe Fall Harvest bouquet from ProFlowers with gorgeous red and yellow roses, Peruvian lilies, bronze spider mums, cushion poms and dried wheat. The buds were closed when I received this bouquet so I knew I had some time to make a vase that would really make this bouquet stand out.

So pretty for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving!! http://www.whatroseknows.com I wanted this vase to be BIG, so I used one of the biggest faux pumpkins I could find at the craft store. I also purchased some dried wheat to add to the bouquet.

So pretty for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving!! http://www.whatroseknows.com I marked off where I wanted to cut the faux pumpkin and made sure the glass vase would be covered in case I decided to use the vase that came with the flowers. My plan was to either put the vase right in the pumpkin and then add the dried wheat under it, or use a completely different vase and add the dried wheat on top of the bouquet.

So pretty for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving!! http://www.whatroseknows.com I couldn't just use the faux white pumpkin as is though. I had to give it the same finish I used on my Rustic Pumpkins with Deep Brown Americana Decor Creme Wax from Hobby Lobby because it's such an easy way to add some character and avoid cookie cutter decor. Like the Rustic Pumpkins I made for our rustic black pipe tv console, I brushed the creme wax on with a brush, then wiped off the excess with a rag. This is a super easy method and I promise anyone can do it!

Before I did anything though, I read the tip card that came with the flowers. For someone like me with a black thumb, these tips are a welcome reminder on the best way to care for fresh flowers. :)

Hi, Rose ~ What a lovely bouquet of flowers, and I love the pumpkin vase you created! The wheat in the middle sets off the colors of the flowers so nicely, I feel like I could inhale and smell those beauties! :0)

Thank you Tiffany! I do love using wheat in my decor wherever I can - even if it's not part of my diet. Haha!

This is beautiful. I'd love to know what you used/how you cut the pumpkin. Also, am I correct in assuming you used only the bowl and not the glass vase? Thank you for the inspiration!

Hi Kate! My husband used his table saw to cut the top. It was the quickest way since this type of pumpkin is made of a pretty thick material. And yes, I did only use the bowl and not the vase! Thanks so much for stopping by!
