Succulent Pumpkin Fall Decoration

An article in the Orange County register today had a picture of a pumpkin that had succulents attached somehow.  Oh man that thing was beautiful!  I immediately went to YouTube and within minutes had pulled up several videos on making one of these puppies.  Didn't look too difficult, so off to Trader Joe's (for pumpkins) and Home Depot (for succulents) I went.  A couple of hours later, I had three pretty cool decorations! 

The total cost was about $30 for three and the directions will be posted on the Project Instructions page on this blog.  I encourage you to give it a try.  What's the worst that could happen?  If it doesn't look right, or you're not happy with it, you pull out the succulents, put 'em in your garden or in a pot and carve up that dang pumpkin!  It's a win win!



Pin It
A spritz with water now and then and it'll be happy!
