DIY: Studded Pumpkin

I love getting creative for the holiday's especially with my tablescapes! This was such a fun project to do and literally took about 20 minutes once I had all my supplies ready to go. 

 What You Need
1 Small Pumpkin (scraped and clean)
100 gold studs (quantity will depend on size of pumpkin)
1 block floral foam, soaked in water
1 gallon size ziplock back (cut seal off)
Flowers of your choice
3 tangerines
3 wooden skewers
Scissors & Garden Clippers

The first thing you will want to do is cut and scrape your pumpkin clean! Make sure you cut the opening big enough to fit the floral foam. Now you can start making your stripes with the studs. My pumpkin had ridges in it so I followed the lines all the way down. 

Once you have that done it's time to get to work! 
Take your gallon ziplock bag, cut the seal off of the top and the line the inside of the pumpkin with the bag. Once the foam has been completely soaked in water place it vertically into the bag and press down. You will end up with a good amount of foam sticking out of the pumpkin. Take a knife and cut the excess off the top. 

Place the filler/greenery along the bottom and then start adding in your flowers. The last step will be to add your tangerines to fill in any holes you might have!
