“LEAFBOWL”. .... Cut the top off of a small pumpkin and let inside dry out (after cleaning out the goo of course!). Add a bit of floral foam inside for a foundation, then poke leaves into the foam – the more you poke the prettier and fuller it looks!
After you scoop out and carve your pumpkin, dip it in a large container of bleach and water (use a 1 tsp:1 gal mix). The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.
Love this idea for pumpkins. A little something different than just carving them.
