floral jack lanterns

October… One of my favorite months.

And creating simple halloween decorations for the home, porch, driveway or apartment hallway is always at the top of my to do’s. This year, I decided to make a series of blooming jack lanterns….

…it was incredibly simple with beautiful results.

To start, I loosely marked the circumference of a small solo cup and then cut out a lid, thoroughly cleaning out the seeds and interior of the pumpkin.

I then placed the solo cup into the pumpkin (photo shows the solo cup raised outside of the pumpkin but be sure to add it all the way so that there is no visible signs of your cup (or whichever vessel you choose).

One of the pumpkins I chose to paint white and the other I left natural orange for contrast. Integrate into your Setting & enjoy!
