DIY Succulent Topped Pumpkin

This DIY project literally took 10 minutes. It's so easy and a really cute and different way to dress up your pumpkins for fall.

Here are the supplies:
Spray Adhesive
All-purpose glue
Painters tape

First, I taped off the top half of the pumpkin, just so I wouldn't get the sticky spray adhesive on the bottom half.

I then generously coated the top half of the pumpkin with spray adhesive.

Then, I pressed the moss on the pumpkin. Don't be bashful with the moss, you want to have a big enough pile so the succulents have something to adhere to.

Next, I cut the succulent at the base.

And then applied glue to the bottom of the succulent.

After that, it's all about arranging the succulents in a way that pleases you.

Remember, succulents are highly resilient, so they only need a sprinkling of water maybe once a week. And once the pumpkins have seen their better day, don't throw the succulents away! Just stick them in a pot with some cactus soil and they should begin to grow roots again. Succulents are really awesome in that way.
Happy Fall!
