Pumpkin Centerpiece


If your kids are too young or just not interested in making jack-o'-lanterns, a pretty alternative is crafting a pumpkin centerpiece. All you need to do is cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin and set a jar or drinking glass inside to fill with water and any flora your kids like, such as wildflowers, cattails, dried wheat, or small branches with colorful leaves. Remember to keep your pumpkin in a cool, dry place when you're not displaying it to help it last longer.
