Easy Pumpkin Centerpiece

I've been in search of the perfect fall centerpiece for our kitchen table.  
I wanted to make something but didn't really know where to start.  
Then a friend texted me a picture of a pumpkin centerpiece she made.  
It looked so simple.  I ran to Hobby Lobby that afternoon picked up supplies. 
I bought everything for under $10, thankfully they had 40% off all of their fall decor.  
The centerpiece took 10 minutes to make.  It's the perfect addition to our kitchen table. 

Craft pumpkin (any size)
Decorative fillers (floral stems)
Marbles (1 small bag) 

Cut the top off the pumpkin (I would cut the circle smaller next time).  
I used a regular kitchen knife, doing a little at a time. 
I poured the marbles into the bottom of the pumpkin.  
I used marbles for the weight and to hold the stems in place.  
After that, I added the floral/ fall stems.  
It took a few minutes to get them arranged the way I wanted.  
I finished off by tying a bow using twine I already had around it.  
Simple as that.
