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.

The smaller flowers fill in any holes.
