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.
- Succulents cuttings
- Spray adhesive
- Hot glue gun/sticks
- Clean pumpkins with water and allow time to dry
- Spray top of pumpkins with adhesive
- Once adhesive is tacky, apply moss
- 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 tinselandwheat.com.
