One Person's Pumpkin is Another Person's Centerpiece



I am definitely in denial that Halloween is over and you would think that having to throw away my jack-o-lanterns would bring me back to reality. Nope. 

Okay, so obviously Halloween is over and everyone and everywhere is on board the Christmas train (which I don't totally mind.) But, if you're like me and want to hold on to your pumpkins for just a little bit longer check out this pumpkin DIY (inspired by May Designs.)


What you will need is:

Mini white pumpkin
Keurig cup
Pumpkin carving tool
Flowers (real or fake)
Masking tape
Gold spray paint
K-cups
Twist ties


The first step in this super simple project is to make a cup of your favorite coffee. After you finish enjoying your refreshment, clean out the k-cup. Then, trace the outline of the k-cup on the top of your pumpkin.


Next, carve out the center of the pumpkin (large enough for the k-cup to fit in.)


Once you've carved out your pumpkin, put masking tape around the middle. Use the gold spray paint to paint the bottom half of the pumpkin. 

Pro tip: if the gold paint bleeds over the tape, nail polish remover can be used to clean it up.


Place your k-cup inside your pumpkin and cut the stems of your flowers down. Tie your finished flowers with a twist ties and insert them in the k-cup.


Let me know if you give this DIY a try!
