Taking a square and making a round shape for a flower power pumpkin.

Can you fit a square peg into a round hole?

Yes!  How? 

Make it fit.

I when to our local dollar store for a Styrofoam ball and all they had is square.  Did I head over to another store?

No, I decided I could make it into a round shape…or close to it.

Let’s do it

Square styrofoam flower power pumpkin #pumpkin #fallHere’s what I used for this easy flower power pumpkin.  That square Styrofoam, some dollar store silk flowers, a stick, and my favorite white craft glue.

If you use a square Styrofoam, make it sorta round by pressing on the corners and then the edges.  I suggest using a round shaped one!

Pull off the flowers and glue around the Styrofoam.  Since mine was not round, I left about 2 inches of stem on the flowers in the 6 flat areas.  I could then “shape” my square into a round!

Done and sorta round

I stuck in the stick on top.  Then sit my flower power pumpkin on a base from those 70″s styled lamps.

I love using the bases around the house.  Perfect as a pedestal for a plate of cookies {makes them feel special.}  Around here a plate of cookies would be special without a pedestal.

This was an easy project and could be in any type of color of silk flowers you have around the house.  It’s the “stem” that makes it a pumpkin!

My photography skills are still developing.  I make the flower power pumpkin outside and took the finished photos inside.  The flower I used is not as white or as yellow as the pictures.  Hum!

How did I do making a square peg into a round pumpkin?
