How to create a succulent pumpkin centerpiece

GTU Featured Guest

Local DIY expert and fellow fall enthusiast, Miranda Webster from Tinsel and Wheat showed us how to create a beautiful succulent pumpkin centerpiece for the holiday season. 

Pumpkin Centerpiece

Needed supplies: 

  • Pumpkins 
  • Succulents cuttings
  • Moss
  • Spray adhesive
  • Hot glue gun/sticks 


  1. Clean pumpkins with water and allow time to dry
  2. Spray top of pumpkins with adhesive
  3. Once adhesive is tacky, apply moss
  4. Using hot glue, add succulents to the pumpkins (start from the center and work your way outwards)

Tips for longevity: 

  • Place a piece of cardboard beneath your pumpkin to keep mold or rot from developing
  • Water moss every 10 days or 2 weeks
  • Place arrangement in an area that gets plenty of indirect sunlight
  • The succulent pumpkin arrangements will last up to 2-3 months at which point, succulents can be replanted 

Miranda will be co-hosting the next Craft Up workshop at University Place in Orem on Saturday, October 13th. For more DIY inspiration from Miranda, you can visit her website
