DIY Foam Pumpkin Succulent Planter

A 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



  1. Using a utility knife carefully cut around the top of the pumpkin as a guide for step 2.
  2. Place the pot on top of the pumpkin and trace around it with a Sharpie.
  3. Follow your tracing and carefully cut out (to fit the pot into pumpkin.)
  4. Place the saucer inside (for pot drainage)
  5. Fill pot with soil and place into pumpkin.
  6. Collect your succulents (ex: thriller, string of bananas, etc.)
  7. Ready to design your arrangement, I placed string of bananas in front.
  8. Then I added my succulents. Fill up the pot/pumpkin. This process takes some trial and error + adjusting to your liking.
