How-To Project: Succulent Pumpkin Planters

A new way to decorate your pumpkin for Halloween.

I got this great idea at work to create succulent pumpkin planters. First, carve off the top of a pumpkin. I used white pumpkins. They have a great shape and are easier to cut. Plus white pumpkins are unique and trendy this season. Fill a small plastic container with succulents and slip it into the carved pumpkins. It is important to plant the succulents in a container because it will allow the display to last longer. Add a bright fall bow for some colour and Spanish moss to fill the empty spaces. It is a great centrepiece for any table or porch for Thanksgiving and Halloween.

Also, the pumpkin can easily be replaced once it begins to rot because of the plastic container. Once the season is over, remove the container and keep the plants near a sunny window. The last two pumpkin pictures were made and are available for purchase at Martha's Greenhouse in Windsor. However if you are feeling creative and want to try it yourself, all materials are available for purchase at Martha's as well.
