DIY Pumpkin Planter

The only thing cuter than fall pumpkins are fall flowers. Well here is a craft that combines the two perfectly, and in such an elegant way! The DIY Pumpkin Planter!

All you need is a medium or large sized pumpkin, a knife, some potting soil, and your favorite fall flower or plant.

Cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the insides.


Before filling your pumpkin with soil to plant your flowers, find a bucket large enough to fit your pumpkin. Pour in 1/2 cup vinegar, put in pumpkin then add water until pumpkin is mostly covered, soak for an hour, remove, and dry off outside of pumpkin, then it’s ready to add your soil! Soaking the pumpkin in the vinegar solution will keep it looking nice for several weeks.

Fill the inside of the pumpkin with potting soil then plant your fall colored flowers just as you would inside any other standard planter.

Be sure to remember to water your plants regularly, and on cold nights you might want to bring them inside, but that can easily be done pumpkin and all!
