Martha Pumpkin Cachepot

Overflowing with bright blossoms, these chubby-cheeked planters are sure to elicit grins. The plants remain in their plastic containers inside the pumpkins, so no repotting is required.


1. Cut a hole in the pumpkins’ tops.

2. Scoop out the flesh.

3. Using a hole cutter or a drill, cut openings in the bottom for drainage.

4. Fill pumpkins with potted flowers, such as chrysanthemums, and display in a sunny spot.
