Halloweeen Flower Arrangement in a Pumpkin

How simple is this arrangement. Everything came from our local grocery store...even the flowers. Total cost $32.
Why not do an autumn arrangement in a pumpkin?
Found this trick-or-treat bucket in the candy isle at the grocery store. Thsi will be perfect for holding water.
I use it as a template for the hole in the top of my pumpkin.
After removing all the seeds/pulp from the pumpkin, I slide my bucket right in. A crumbled piece of chicken wire will hold all my flowers in place.
Grabbed these flowers at the grocery store as well. Mini white hydrangea, roses (Conga), orange spray roses, and dyed orange goldenrod for texture.
Be sure to cut all your flowers at an angle so they can absorb as much water as possible.
Always start an arrangement wih the largest flowers first. They hold the other flowers in place.
Then add the roses in clumps.
The smaller flowers fill in any holes.
That's all there is to this. Looks like a $200 centerpiece from a profesional florists...and everything came from our local grocery store.

    you can coat the pumpkin with a bleach mixture once it is carved. The will make it last about another week. That gives you 2 weeks.

    Is it best to use bleach or use an acrylic coat to make the pumpkin last longer?
