Happy Happy September 🌞🍁🍂 We have some pumpkins ready to be picked, which means it’s time for one of my favorite late summer/fall crafts. To make this pumpkin biodegradable, I made a food-grade glue that can be washed off or composted. This way, you can still enjoy delicious heirloom squash because it is food, after all! Of course, this won’t stand up to the rain, so if you want to leave your pumpkins outside, they’ll likely have to be washed clean. To place the flowers, you may need to moisten the glue slightly. Apply glue using a paintbrush or pastry brush (food safe), apply the pressed flowers, then add another layer of glue. Very simple! Here’s the glue recipe. Make sure to save this for later! Here’s what you’ll need to make 1 cup of glue: 1 ½ cups (350 ml) water 2 tablespoons (40 g) corn syrup or honey 1 teaspoon (4.9 ml) vinegar 2 tablespoons (15 g) cornstarch 1. In a saucepan, stir together 3/4 C (180 ml) of water, syrup and vinegar and bring the mixture to a complete boil. 2. In a medium bowl, mix the cornstarch and the remaining half of the water together until combined. 3. Slowly stir the cornstarch mixture into the simmering mixture on the stove. Return the glue mixture to a boil and continue cooking for 1 minute. 4. Remove the glue from the heat and allow it to cool. Store in a closed container. It’s best used within a few days, but mine has continued for several months. Just check for mold. It can also be stored in the refrigerator, but may need to be reheated before use. Be sure to save this, and if you enjoy the idea, please like, share, and let me know below! Oh, and stay tuned for more fun seasonal creations! A lot on my sleeves ❤️🍁❤️

Of course, DIY decoupage adds a stunning natural element to these pumpkins, but @northwoodsfolk emphasized that the edible glue and flowers also reinforced the zero-waste aspect of her floral pumpkin design. “This way, you can still enjoy delicious heirloom squash because it is food, after all!” She explained.
Fans in the comments were dazzled by the delicate flowers and magical appearance of the pumpkin blossom, with one saying: “This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.” Another wrote: “This is what Alice in Wonderland’s pumpkins would look like,” and we have to agree!
@northwoodsfolk has issued a warning about its amazing Halloween alternative. “Of course, this won’t stand up to the rain, so if you want to leave your pumpkins outside, they should probably be washed clean.”
You don’t have to keep them outside, though. Why not add it to your fireplace for a statement piece or place it on a windowsill so you can really admire your handiwork?
