These DIY succulent pumpkins combine are so easy to make and so fun for fall decorating and gifting! A must pin and make!

If you follow me on instagram or have been a reader of this blog for a while, you saw me make these last year. But they are so good and the DIY was so popular I thought I would post it again. Especially since it combines two of my favorite things: succulents and pumpkins! If I could find a way to add peonies I’d probably break the internet, making it a DIY trifecta of instagram’s most shared things 🙂 

These succulent pumpkins are so easy to make, look fancier than just displaying mini pumpkins, make for great fall decor, and are also great for gifting! I made all of these while my older son and my husband carved a jack-o-lantern.

What You’ll Need:

  • a variety of small succulents
  • a variety of mini pumpkins and gourds (the smallest ones and the knobby gourds are harder to work with)
  • a sharp paring knife
  • a spoon for scooping

(If you have little kids like me and have a hard time gathering supplies, you can find most of this on Amazon, believe it or not!)

How To Make Them:

  1. As with carving a regular size pumpkin, cut the top off of the mini pumpkin or gourd with a paring knife. I tried a variety of sizes and found a small but sharp paring knife to work best, and feel the safest.
  2. Once you’ve cut the top off, scoop out most of the guts of the pumpkin.
  3. Choose one of your succulents and plant it inside the empty pumpkin. I found that the dirt that came with the plant was enough to fill the pumpkins, but if you choose a larger one you may need more.
  4. Display, gift, and enjoy! They are seriously that simple.These DIY succulent pumpkins combine are so easy to make and so fun for fall decorating and gifting! A must pin and make!

Don’t you love!? These are my new go-to decor for fall. I think I love them as much, or maybe more, than my dip dyed bottle brush trees and bottle brush tree snow globes that are my Christmas DIY go-to! I’d love to see these if you make them, so be sure to post on instagram and tag them with #ohlovelyDIY so I can see!
