Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
I wanted my pumpkin to lift its head slightly so that it is easy to see the beautiful sepals inside. Making tiny legs also prevent the pumpkin from rolling.
Cut wooden sticks at a sharp angle... you can use Popsicle sticks or...
A sturdy stick for a more natural look.
Carefully position the twig.
Make a small hole or Hammer the wood into the pumpkin.
Seal the wound with Oasis Floral Adhesive to prevent moisture loss.
And position the pumpkin to stand on it's three legs
Neatly balanced in your design.
When in doubt, always give your armature three legs. Two legs are simply not enough and four legs will wobble if it is even slightly off balance.
My Halloween design... with some scary stuff hidden if you can read between the leaves!
Hanging pumpkins and tiny vases to create a Autumn mobile floral design.
