Pumpkin Succulent Centerpiece

Sabrina Soto shares an easy craft to get your house ready for Fall! Check out more of her great ideas on her website!

  • White pumpkins (any size)
  • Various Small Succulents
  • Hot glue or Floral Glue

Start by wiping down the top of your pumpkin with a damp cloth to remove any excess dirt from the surface. Next, choose your succulents and take them out of their containers, making sure to shake out any soil left in the roots.

Then, all you need to do is attach your succulents with a dollop of hot glue–Yes, hot glue! I know it sounds crazy but the glue holds the succulents in place all season long without doing any damage to the plants themselves (I confirmed this with a florist friend). If you really can’t wrap your head around using hot glue, swap with floral glue.  Regardless, they will continue to stay fresh for up to three months!

The trick to achieving this look is to vary the size, texture and color of each succulent! It’s so fun to build the arrangements as you go and watch your pumpkins come to life.

I used both large and small pumpkins to add depth to my fresh fall centerpiece!
