Pumpkin Succulent Centerpiece
I had purchased a few succulents at Lowe’s this past weekend just for this project. Right now they are all on sale for 50% off the regular price. Because the pumpkin centerpiece is just a temporary planter for the succulents, I did not put any drainage holes in the plastic cup. I added a tiny bit of potting mix in the bottom and started filling the cup with the small succulents. When it was full, I added some small pebbles on top of the soil.
If you make a centerpiece like this using a real pumpkin, don’t forget to remove your succulents after a few days because they will not survive such a moist environment. If you use an artificial pumpkin, I would put a few drainage holes in the bottom of the plastic cup.
Well, I hope I’ve given you a little inspiration today to create an easy fall centerpiece for your table. Visit our blog Cottage at the Crossroads for more fall decorating ideas, and I’d love it if you followed on Facebook or Pinterest as well.
