Fall & Thanksgiving offer you the opportunity to make a flower arrangement in a container that is unique to the season & the holiday, a cornucopia. The word comes from the Latin words cornus (horn) and copia (supply, abundance) so it is literally a “horn of plenty” and should be filled to overflowing with foliage, flowers, and/or fruits and vegetables. The key to making a pleasing arrangement in a cornucopia is capturing the look and feel of abundance.
Take a look at one of our favorite DIY Fall Centerpieces that uses mostly organic materials in its simple yet beautiful design.
This is a very easy DIY, with such an amazing decorative effect! I was able to put this together in under a half hour, which is so great when you have a lot of other things to do! To make things even easier, buy your flowers online at Fabulous Florals.
Sharp serrated Knife
Flowers, berries, greenery
Scissors or flower shears
- Buy your flowers conveniently online at Fabulous Florals.
- Carve and clean out one of your pumpkins.
- Cut the flower stems down far enough to cover the opening of the pumpkin.
- Place a water filled vase inside the pumpkin.
- And arrange your flowers!
You can put this arrangement together in a day or even 3 days ahead of an event, as the pumpkin, in my experience, does not deteriorate very fast at all! As long as you are keeping the arrangement indoors, it should stay looking fabulous for quite some time! These should last for at least a week if you change the water every 3 days.
Here’s another idea of an easy DIY Cornucopia you can place in your home as a Fall Centerpiece.
