How to Make Gorgeous Flower Pots With Pumpkins (VIDEO)

Can you smell the pumpkin spice in the air? I can! And I'm already seeing a plethora of really fun, fall-inspired crafts to try on Pinterest. One pin that seems to make the rounds every year is flower pots made using pumpkins. Typically I repin them but figure they're probably too time-intensive to try on my own.


This year is different, though! I decided to give the pumpkin flower pots a try and make one using a real pumpkin and the other using a carvable craft pumpkin.

I gathered my pumpkins, carving knife, a scooper, and a flower arrangement and got to work! I'll be honest, it really didn't take much time at all once I had my materials in place.
