DIY Succulent Worded Pumpkins

Show off your green thumb in your Halloween decor! In my collaboration with Cassidy of Succulents and Sunshine, we’ve thought up a few DIY decor ideas with pumpkins and succulents.

Keep reading below for the DIY instructions of these beautiful worded pumpkins!

Here’s the third of four projects that Cassidy and I collaborated on. She made these adorable pumpkins spelling the words “BOO” written in succulents.
We love pumpkin projects here at Lars, especially because they’re a Halloween decor staple! All of these pumpkin projects have me aching to go to a pumpkin patch. Finding the perfect pumpkins for your decor is important (but mostly just a great excuse to go pick some pumpkins)!
This DIY is pretty easy, and it doesn’t require many materials! We stacked the pumpkins in this tutorial, but you can always place them next to each other to spell out whatever phrase your Halloween decor calls for. Gah! Stacking pumpkins is harder than it looks!

Materials:

  • Succulent Cuttings
  • Pumpkins (live or fake!)
  • Hot glue or floral glue
  • Toothpicks
  • Permanent marker

Instructions:

  1. If you’re opting to stack your pumpkins, I applaud you! The first step is to stack the pumpkins how you want them displayed
  2. Use a permanent marker to trace the letters on your pumpkins (we decided “BOO” was a cute and easy phrase!)
  3. Attach the succulent cuttings to the pumpkins with hot glue, floral glue, or toothpicks. Cassidy decided that toothpicks work best for larger succulent cuttings. According to Cassidy, floral glue also works very well when working with succulents!
  4. If you decide to use the toothpick method, stick the toothpick into the pumpkin, leaving about 1/2″ sticking out. Then take your succulent cutting and stick it on the toothpick. Voila!

Get the full scoop on how to do it and pictures of the process on her blog, Succulents and Sunshine. Let me know in the comments what you chose for your phrase and how your own succulent worded pumpkins turned out!

These worded succulent pumpkins will surely turn heads of passersby. And as if these worded pumpkins are not cute enough…

BAM! Dogs make everything 15 times cuter.

I love these projects with Cassidy because they work for all ages and they can fit into any style of Halloween decor! Check out our other pumpkin and succulent projects, including decorating pumpkins with succulents and making a pumpkin family!
