How to Make a Floral Pumpkin Centerpiece
Supplies for Fake Floral Pumpkin

Steps for Your No Carve Pumpkin
- Find a letter in a simple font online.
- Use your printer to print out the letter. The size will depend on the pumpkin you choose.
- After printing, cut the letter to use as a stencil.
- Place tape on the back of the letter.
- Affix letter to the surface of the pumpkin where you want your monogram to be.
- Use your pen or pencil to trace the letter onto your pumpkin. Don’t worry about getting a perfect edge as it will be covered by flowers.
- After tracing, peel the letter off to reveal the letter’s outline.
- Pull the floral heads off of the stems.
- Using the stenciled letter as a guide, begin to hot glue flowers onto the pumpkin. You may have to move the petals or glue some underneath to get a defined edge.
- Add a ribbon around your stem to enhance the floral pumpkin. You can even make this coordinate with your decor.
