DIY Goodwill Pumpkin Decor

What a find-
A goodwill find! Some people toss the best things-
Two large white foam pumpkins and I was so excited-

I took off the plastic stem and started cutting out the center-


Although it's foam, I used a steak knife and cut away-

I grabbed my stash of floral supplies and decided to try 2 different looks- an Autumn color scheme and a neutral one- I'm personally not a fan of the warm autumn colors in my own decor so the 2nd way was going to be more to my liking-



I started with a small spray of roses, vines and leaves in the center, and went from there-


Adding as I turned it-



I was wrong about these colors- 
they bring a warmth to my blue and white room and
love how this looks on my coffee table!



I decided to make the 2nd pumpkin centerpiece with all neutrals-



I used a grapevine twist with silk roses and a silk garland of roses-



This was much quicker since I didn't have to arrange the flowers inside-

  

I found the metal stem at TJ Maxx in clearance -perfect for my cute pumpkin!




I love both style pumpkins but the 2nd one is my fave!  What about you?

Take care, gotta fly-
