Pumpkin succulents are a unique way to display your favorite succulent variety this fall season. Pumpkin succulent planters can be personalized with your favorite design on the outside by adding paint & glitter or leaving it plain and focusing the colors with your succulents.

 

What you’ll need:

Foam pumpkin

Stencil

Scissors

Tape

Pencil

Permanent marker

Paint brush

Decoupage

Glitter

Glitter setting spray

Hot crafting knife (or regular knife)

Succulent potting mix

Moss

Variety of succulents

If you decide to paint or stencil a fall design on the outside of the pumpkin, then the above list is a helpful way to get you started.  Start by cutting a hole in the top of the pumpkin with a heated craft knife. Heated craft knives are sold at most craft stores and will make this step much easier. If you don’t have access to one, a regular knife will work, it will just take more time to cut through the plastic and foam. The size of the hole you cut depends on how many succulents you want to plant. In general, it’s safe to remove most of the top of the pumpkin. If it ends up being too big, you can always add more moss or succulents. Fill the pumpkin with potting soil about ¾ that is made for succulents or cacti. Succulent care best practices include using soil that is coarse and drains well. Place moss around the rim of the pumpkin so it hangs over the sides. You can use multiple types and colors of moss if you want to add more texture or keep it simple with just one variety. Next fill the pumpkin with succulents that you can find at any garden store.

These pumpkin succulent displays can be placed in your house all season long. Place it in the entryway to welcome the fall season or arrange it on your Thanksgiving dinner table as a unique centerpiece.

Pair your white pumpkin succulent garden with other fall-colored pumpkins and gourds to complete the look! You can also use real pumpkins as well, these will last about 2 to 3 weeks.
