Invite your friends to bring a pumpkin, some succulents, some found and foraged materials from their yards, and make an evening of it!
It is really up to you how you want to adorn your pumpkin. But at a minimum, you do need a pumpkin, succulents, a glue gun, moss, twigs, and extra decorative pieces.
Like any good container garden, aim to have a ‘thriller,’ a ‘filler,’ and a ‘spiller’ succulent. All mine have roots.
Use a variety of mosses to take the place of succulent soil.
Try an assortment of twigs too. Take a walk and see what catches your eye!
Add pinecones, berries and these little gems from a Crape Myrtle tree!
Use a waterproof trivet, keep it away from direct sunlight, spritz moss, and plants once a week, then replant after season.
This is an excellent DIY if you are looking for some immediate gratification and instant fall home decor.
