Continuing on the pumpkin/succulent kick with Succulents and Sunshine
(last week I featured these painted face pumpkins
), I thought it’d be fun to add some succulents onto some pumpkins as if they were flower petals. Super easy yet lovely. We’ve been thinking about many ways to decorate pumpkins with succulents, and this one is fun for all ages!
- Pumpkins (light-colored work best)
- Succulents in various shades
- Glue gun
- Break off the succulents carefully at the very base of where they meet the trunk.
- Apply hot glue onto the pumpkin and then apply the succulent. I found that when you applied it onto the succulent, it’s more prone to fall off.
If you’ve been reading all of the collaborations I’ve been doing with Cassidy, you’ll know that I’m more comfortable working with paper and fabric than succulents! But I do love greenery, and these tutorials are a great way to work with plants, even if you’re not an experienced gardener. This tutorial on how to decorate pumpkins with succulents is especially perfect if you have succulents around the house that are falling apart. Don’t let those beauties go to waste! Use the leaves to decorate a pumpkin!
These decorative pumpkins are truly works of art if I do say so myself. I love how this tutorial allows for personal creativity. It’s a great activity to do with friends and family, and you’ll be able to see everyone’s personality in their pumpkin! I love walking around and seeing everyone’s decorations during the holidays, and these succulent pumpkin flowers are sure to impress your guests.
I mean, how adorable right? They’re like little encrusted jewels.
