What do you get when you combine a pumpkin and a succulent? A pumpculent- basic chicks are going crazy! Catch the details to this fall DIY.
- succulents (4 for a medium size pumpkin)
- heirloom pumpkin
- sharp knife
- spoon or garden spade
- Cut the top of the pumpkin off with your knife.
- Use your spoon or spade to scoop out the inside of the pumpkin. Spoon in some soil and place you succulents in the soil.
- Tip: Water your succulents one per week. They do not need much water, but they do need sunlight to last a long period of time.
We are crossing another item off of our fall bucketlist with this “craft.” I love me some succulents! I would have them in every corner of the house if my husband would let me. Truth be told, I somehow kill cacti?! How do I even manage this.. it is because I am better at giving advice than taking it. I usually don’t give my succulents get enough sunlight. I am determined to keep this creation alive for as long as possible. This pumpculent (I am coining this term) would make an awesome center piece or front porch attraction. I used an heirloom pumpkin since they are more rustic looking and I love the cool colors they come in, like green and peach. Do you have any fall projects or fun crafts in mind?
