DIY Pumpkin Succulent Decorations

Succulents are a huge decorating trend right now. This DIY pumpkin succulent project is a fun, simple, and unique twist on the standard terrarium.

What we need

- Mini white pumpkins, proportionate to your succulents - Artificial succulents - Drill, pumpkin carving knife, spoon (not shown)

Let's make DIY Pumpkin Succulent Decorations


Drill pumpkin: White pumpkins can have a particularly tough outer shell, so I’ve found it easiest to predrill a starting point for carving out the top of the pumpkin. 

Carve the hole: With your pilot hole started, it will be easy to carve out the top of your pumpkin. You only want to take about 1” or 1-1/2” out of the top of your pumpkin so your succulent will rest easily on the pumpkin itself.


Carving: Use a pointed, serrated knife to begin at your pilot hole and carve a small opening. Pull out the stem and empty the seeds. Measure your succulent against the opening on your succulent.


Cut stem:  Use wire cutters or tin snips to cut the succulent stem at that point. (Alternatively, you can simply bend it, depending on the size of the inside of your mini pumpkin.)


Add succulent: Place the succulent into the mini pumpkin. Settle it down into the pumpkin’s belly. Ideally, the end of the succulent’s stem will dig slightly into the bottom of the pumpkin’s insides.
