Easy DIY Succulent Pumpkin Planters


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!




Styrofoam pumpkins, acrylic paint, faux succulents, sand or small pebbles, scissors or a knife, river rocks, and a foam brush.


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.


Next add in the sand or pebbles, leaving an extra inch for the river rocks.


Insert faux succulents and you are finished!
