The fall decoration you never knew you needed: Pumpkin succulents

/ Source: TODAY

Ditch your boring planter this fall and step up your succulent skills — by adding them to a pumpkin!

These pumpkin succulents are so simple to make and look great almost everywhere in your house.

Here's how you can make these beautiful centerpieces:


You can get all of your supplies from a craft store and hardware store:

  • White or orange pumpkins (smaller ones are easier for first-timers!)
  • Spray adhesive glue
  • Moss (make sure it's real or this project won't last as long....we learned the hard way)
  • A couple of succulents in different sizes
  • Clippers

Step 1: Remove the stem of your pumpkin using garden clippers or your hand, if it's a smaller pumpkin.

Step 2: Coat the top of the pumpkin with spray adhesive glue.

Step 3: Apply a thin layer of moss to the crown of the pumpkin. Press down gently.

Step 4: Grab the tallest succulent you have! Apply hot glue to the bottom. Don’t worry, succulents don’t mind the glue!

Step 5: Attach the succulent to the center of the pumpkin. Hold it there for a couple of seconds, until it is secured on the moss.

Step 6: Repeat steps 4 and 5, placing succulents from the center of the pumpkin, toward the edges.

These centerpieces vary in how long they will last, but generally they are good for about a week!
