Pumpkin Planters For Your Succulents

DIY Pumpkin Planter

Few things make us happier this season than fall Bouqs, pumpkin spice, and a little DIY project. Any activity that helps us connect with the outdoors is a surefire way to get us into the fall spirit. Instead of admiring the change of season through your window, get your hands dirty with our favorite fall accessory- pumpkins!

Give your flowering succulents a temporary new home inside these cute DIY pumpkin planters. Once you’re done, place it in a shady area such as a covered porch or on the steps leading up to your doorway to greet guests into your home. Remember to spritz your succulents with water from time to time to keep them healthy and looking fresh. Watch below for what you’ll need and the steps to create!

What you will need:

  • Pumpkin
  • Succulents
  • Spade
  • Soil
  • Spoon
  • Knife

Step 1: Use the knife to carve a medium-sized hole out of the top of the pumpkin, pulling out the stem. Be careful carving, safety first!

Step 2: Spoon out the inside of the pumpkin, taking out all of the seeds and pulp.

Step 3: Scoop the soil into the pumpkin, making sure to leave space to fit the succulents.

Step 4: Take the succulents, roots and all, out of their container and place into the pumpkin. Scoop a little more soil around the edges to cover fully. The pumpkin will be a happy home for the succulents for a few weeks. Once the pumpkin is no longer suitable, you can easily replant the succulents into a new container for the long-term.
