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:
Pumpkin
Moss
Spray Adhesive
All-purpose glue
Succulents
Scissors
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!
