Succulent Pumpkins

Hooray! October is here! This is an easier, faster, and cleaner Pumpkin activity than the traditional Jack-O-Lantern. Plus, you get a decoration that will last for at least a month. So grab your pals, wine, and let's get crafting!

What you'll need:

Pumpkins! As many as you'd like, big or small.

Craft Moss (You can get this at your local arts store like Michael"s)

Hot Glue Gun and glue sticks

Succulents of varying heights and textures


Warm up the glue in your hot glue gun.

Glue a fingerful of moss onto your pumpkin. Press down and hold for a few seconds. (Don't burn yourself)

One by one, glue down your succulents on top of the moss, pausing to hold for around 10 seconds per succulent. You'll want a large succulent in the middle and your most aesthetic plants on the outside rim.

You may need to go back with the glue gun to fill in some gaps where to succulent may fall off the pumpkin.


Keep in a place with some amount of natural light.

Once a week, take a squirt bottle and just mist your succulents for 4 quick squirts.

Enjoy! I love doing this as a quick craft at home to celebrate autumn. If you have some craft ideas, send them my way on IG @eatsuperbatter or so that we can share them with our community.
