Can you believe fall is just around the corner? I was itching to get my craft on and succulent pumpkins are what I came up with. The best part? They are so super easy, my little buddy even helped me.
- Small Succulents
- Large Succulents
- Pumpkins – either hollow ones or styrofoam filled pumpkins – I found mine at Joanns
- Foam blocks – if your pumpkins are hollow
- Glue gun – optional
How to Create Succulent Pumpkins
First cut the top off. You can see the difference of these 2 pumpkins. One is hollow the other has styrofoam in it. Both work just great. If you get a hollow pumpkin you will need foam blocks to put into the pumpkin to stick the succulents into.
You can cut your foam down to whatever size you need.
Next add in your succulents. Make sure you are pushing them down hard enough into the styrofoam so they will stay put. If you are worried about them falling out you can hot glue them in
Continue adding succulents all the way around until it is how you like it.
Once you get it just perfect you can push your moss in-between the succulents. This will hide the styrofoam and I like the texture it adds! You can also hot glue in the moss so it won’t fall out.
And TADA you have some beautiful EASY succulent pumpkins!
You can also create a floral pumpkin the same way. Just us artificial plants instead! View my favorite stems here.
