Thanksgiving Flowers

Happy Thanksgiving! Today I thought I'd share an easy flower arrangement I made for Thanksgiving using a pumpkin as a vase.  To start I bought a sugar pumpkin and some zinnias at the grocery store. To hold the water I used a half pint jelly jar that I already had, but any glass or plastic jar smaller than the pumpkin would work.  I traced the rim of the jar onto the pumpkin and using a knife cut out the opening.  After scooping out the seeds (and saving them for toasting) I inserted the jar into the pumpkin.  To finish it off I added some water to the jar and then arranged the zinnias for a simple and festive arrangement.
