DIY Pumpkin Flower Vases

Give Your Pumpkins This Magical Makeover

I love the idea of recycling my Halloween pumpkins by transforming them into these wonderful flower vases for my Thanksgiving table. There’s no need limit pumpkins to pies and soups this fall. Grab your carving knives, Divas, it’s time to dig in!

DIY Pumpkin Flower Vases


What You’ll Need:


  • Empty Hiland Dairy Milk jugs, various sizes
  • Pumpkins, various sizes and colors
  • Carving knife
  • Flower bouquets
  • Scissors


  • Rinse jug and remove label with warm, soapy water. Allow to dry completely.
  • Carve the tops off of each pumpkin.
    • Tip: Be sure to cut a big enough whole at the top to fit the milk jugs.
  • Cut each jug about half way down, short enough so you don’t see them sitting inside the pumpkins.
  • Place the cut milk jugs inside of each pumpkin.


  • Fill cut jugs with water.
  • Arrange flowers in each pumpkin vase (yes, it’s that simple!).
