Pumpkin Vase

If you're in the holiday spirit, try something new to brighten up your home. Simply clean and carve the inside of a pumpkin, just as you would if you are creating a scary pumpkin to set outside. Then, set a glass or cup in the middle of the pumpkin, fill it with water and place your favorite flowers inside.

This is a great way to get the kids involved in the season.
