Foam Pumpkin Succulent Planter - planter on woven matA beautiful succulent pumpkin arrangement for indoor and/or outdoor use. This succulent pumpkin is an arrangement for my kitchen. This arrangement can be used as a wedding center piece too if you're having a fall wedding or makes a great fall gift!

This arrangement did not cost me much because I had all the supplies at home already. The carve-able pumpkin was saved from last year's 90% off sale at Target, the clay pot/saucer I bought at Michael's with 50-60% off coupons, and succulents and soil, I have on hand.

Total Time: 45 minutes

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Using a utility knife carefully cut around the top of the pumpkin as a guide for step 2.
  2. Foam Pumpkin Succulent Planter - cutting off the stem
     
    Foam Pumpkin Succulent Planter - looking down at the top of the pumpkin after removing the stem
     
  3. Place the pot on top of the pumpkin and trace around it with a Sharpie.
  4. Foam Pumpkin Succulent Planter -
