Pumpkin Vases

You need:
2 small pumpkins or gourds
Sharp paring knife or razor knife
Aluminum foil
Florist foam
Fresh and dried flowers, grasses, and seedpods
3-inch green, wired picks (available at florist shops or craft stores)
2 burlap strips (approximately 15 by 2 inches; optional)
Straight pins

Cut out the tops of the pumpkins with a sharp knife, and scoop out the pulp with a spoon. Line the pumpkins with foil. (Most pumpkins and gourds will remain watertight for several days, but lining them with foil gives added protection against leakage.) Cut the florist foam to flt inside each pumpkin, and add just enough water to saturate the foam. Arrange the flowers, grasses, and seedpods. Any tender flower stems can be secured and strengthened, using a wired pick.
