Thanksgiving Succulent Pumpkin Planters

Happy Thanksgiving! I love this holiday. That cozy, warm feeling, the arrival of loved ones, the fall air, the anticipation of seconds ? (or thirds!), the glowing lights and decorations that start poppin’! And the last minute run to the grocery store along with 10 million other people who also forgot the cranberry sauce. I am definitely feeling the holiday spirit this year! And more grateful than ever for a year full of love, good health, progress and adventure. May your holiday be full of peace, warmth and happiness…and succulent pumpkin planters! Keep scrolling for this quick & easy DIY. They make a perfect Thanksgiving table centerpiece!

WHAT YOU NEED

1) Several small pumpkins with variation in color and size (I like things in odd numbers, they group together better)

2) About 3 small succulents per pumpkin.

3) pumpkin carving knife

THE INSTRUCTIONS

A pumpkin detail to note: I used smaller pumpkins so that when I planted the succulents inside, the cavity was small enough and held the succulents firmly. If your pumpkins are too large, the succulents will fall to the bottom (although you could use larger pumpkins, but fill the majority of the cavities with paper towels or bubble wrap or something bulky so that planting the succulents doesn’t require a ton of soil. FACT: Succulents don’t require much soil to thrive, I keep cuttings alive in a terrarium with simply a lot of light and occasional misting.)

1. Start by carefully cutting a hole around the stem of each pumpkin, about 1.5 times the diameter of the plastic succulent pots.

2. Clean out the pumpkins’ insides and seeds.

3. Remove each succulent from its plastic pot, and break off about two-thirds of the soil from the bottom–it’s very dry soil and will crumble easily with your fingers. By removing most of the soil from each succulent, you can group about three together into one arrangement for each pumpkin. Combine different heights and succulent textures to create extra interesting planters.

4. Place each arrangement inside the empty pumpkin cavity and press firmly.

5. Mist with occasional water (I water all my succulents about every 2 weeks) and keep the planters in a bright area. If your succulents become limp and translucent they are not getting enough light. Move to a brighter area. The pumpkins will keep for about a week+ before getting soft and mushy. Place them in the refrigerator at night to keep them fresh longer!

Hope you enjoy this quick and easy DIY. Tag me with your creations, I’d love to see how your planters turn out!
