- Scoop out the pulp and seeds, and use cling film to line the insides.

- Place the cylindrical container inside the carved pumpkin
- Carefully fill the container with water and flower food.
- Place fresh seasonal flowers into the container
- Add Halloween decorations such as a pirate flag, spider web orbat prop
