Let’s be honest I don’t have the greenest of thumbs. Does anyone need a cactus killer? I love plants but I can never keep them alive. With that being said, I will be showing you how to make these easy faux succulent pumpkin planters. Bonus this project only costed ten dollars, who has a green thumb now!

 

Supplies:

Start off by cutting a hole at the top of the pumpkin. Remove lid and disregard any extras. Note, you want your pumpkin to be hallow.

Completely cover all of the orange with two coats of paint.
