    Make It By Monday: Thanksgiving Pumpkin Centerpieces

    With the holidayS kicking into high gear, get a leg up on the festive season by making your own versatile decorative pumpkin centerpiece. Take a pumpkin or gourde and add some succulents to create a memorable table accent that will wow all of your guests for Thanksgiving and beyond.

    • How to make a pumpkin centerpiece:

    • MATERIAL:
      • 1 heirloom pumpkin (I used a “Jarrahdale” because I love its dusky blue hue, but any will do)
      • succulents (remove the root balls but leave at least an inch of stem)
      • reindeer or other moss
      • lisianthus
      • broom corn
      • oak or other tree leaves
      • dusty miller leaves
      • bronze fennel seed heads
      • trailing amaranth, dried or fresh
      • mini pumpkins or gourds to match your colors
      • vintage tray or other base
      • floral foam (Oasis)
      • waterproof florist tape
      • Bindwire or basic floral wire
      • scissors
