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.
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.
