- 1 small pumpkin
- Oasis floral foam
- Oasis waterproof tape
- 1 stem of sunflowers
- 3 stems of yellow roses
- 1 stem of Estelle
- 1 stem of chrysanthemum
Step1: Begin by measuring your floral foam. Once you have your desired size, place the foam brick onto the top of the water and allow the foam to submerge into the water. Do not force the foam down into the water, this can cause air bubbles to form. If you don’t have foam, you can line the inside of the pumpkin with a small plastic container.
Step 2: Place the foam into the pumpkin and secure by creating an X with two thin strips of 1/2″ Oasis tape.
Step 3: Trim the stems and start adding your choice of greenery or filler flowers about 1″ into the foam. Add the rest of your flowers, start with largest to smallest.
Step 4: Lastly, add in any extra flowers or greenery to fill in any empty spaces. Make sure the floral foam or the plastic container isn’t peeking through.
