DIY Fall Coastal Floral Arrangement

6 Materials

Most of the items I used for this arrangement I already had at home, including the faux hydrangea, the faux sunflowers and the metal container. I bought the 3 mini pumpkins (but only ended up using 2), the larger pumpkin and the white decorative rocks at the Dollar Tree.


I planned to make my arrangement more coastal than Fallish.

I started by painting the mini pumpkins English Channel, which was left over paint from this thrift store makeover. Next, I carved a large hole into the larger pumpkin and then painted it white using some craft paint I had.

I also had some floral foam left over from when I made this DIY Monogrammed Succulent Garden, so I cut a piece down to size and placed it in the pumpkin. Then I stuck the hydrangea in the middle and the sunflowers all around the sides. I did have to cut the stem on the hydrangea pretty short using some wire cutters, and I cut each sunflower off the stems, and cut them pretty short too so they would fit into the small piece of floral foam.

Lastly, I arranged them in this metal tray I’ve had for a few years, and added the white rocks and some shells. I placed it on my outdoor dining table by our pool.

But Wait, There’s more…

I thought it looked cute and I could have left well enough alone, but it seemed to be lacking something. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I LOVE all things coastal/beach/nautical. Having said that, I decided to trace some nautical shapes on each pumpkin and paint them using my white paint pen and then filled them in with some white craft paint. I used the color English Channel for the anchor to match the color of the pumpkins and used a very small paintbrush I found in my sons’ room. Don’t look to close, they are not perfect by any means.

Once I was done with that and the paint was all dried, I put them back in the metal container.

Yup, that looked much better.

So, that is it. This was super easy to make and since I had most of the materials already, only cost me $4.
