how to make succulent pumpkins step by step tutorial

The succulent pumpkins are not only aesthetically-pleasing, but they are also super fun to do. The materials that you are going to need are easily accessible and if you follow the steps, it won’t take more than 15 minutes to create your pumpkin decoration. Here’s what you are going to need:

  • a pumpkin (the size and the color is entirely up to you)
  • a pumpkin carving kit
  • natural moss
  • scissors
  • black marker
  • hot glue gun
  • natural or artificial succulent plants

Now, let’s go ahead and start with the DIY project. The preparation is just a few steps and they are easy to follow. If you are doing the pumpkin decoration with your kids, don’t let them use the hot glue gun!

  • Grab your black marker and draw the place where you are going to cut the pumpkin (around the stem). Make sure that the hole is big enough so it can fit the moss.
  • Start carving your pumpkin and make sure you clean everything from the inside.
  • Now, you have to place the natural moss inside the pumpkin. Leave a bit for later on, because you are going to need it. Also, you might need to use scissors to cut it and form it the way you want.

  • If you are going to use natural succulent plants, make sure you remove the dirt from them and clean them well when you get them out of their pots.
  • Start arranging the succulent plants around the moss. Once you’re done and you are happy with the arrangement, get your hot glue gun and start gluing the plants. One piece of advice is to place the bigger plants in the center and the smaller ones around the big ones.
