Alternative Botanical Flower Pumpkins

Botanical flower pumpkins are a safer (and less messy) alternative to pumpkin carving for all the family.

Start by assembling your supplies. You will need:


  • dried flowers - I had some left over from this fun Easter craft (you can find instructions on how to press your flowers in the blog here), but it takes about a week to dry your own. If you don't have time to do this, you can buy pre-pressed flowers.

  • Mod Podge or PVA glue

  • brush to apply Mod Podge or glue

  • pumpkin

Using the brush, apply glue on your pumpkin and stick on the flowers in any way you choose. Unleash your creative side!

Leave to dry for about 12 hours to allow the PVA glue/Mod Podge to clear. Simple!
