I can’t explain how much love I have for succulents. Living in Arizona, you’d think I was tired of all things in the cactus family, but I love the heck outta these things. It’s probably because they don’t scare me. I won’t kill them and so they’re something I just don’t have to work at. What’s even better are the fake succulents because then I REALLY don’t have to worry about killing them!
This month’s Make it Fun team challenge included Desert Foam and succulents so I decided it was time to get my FALL DECOR going and created a Succulent Pumpkin.
To make a succulent pumpkin, I used:
- Design it:® Simple Style® Succulent Pick
- Design it:® Silks & Naturals Desert Foam®
- Design it:® Floral arrangement kit
- Carving Pumpkin
I started by cutting the top off of my craft pumpkin with a regular steak knife.
I trimmed my succulents with the snippers in the Design it:® Floral arrangement kit and pressed them into the Design it:® Silks & Naturals Desert Foam® at different angles.
I love how simple and easy it was to create such a stunning piece of Fall Decor! This Succulent Pumpkin can stay up until Thanksgiving, which makes me happy – I can continue to be a lazy decorator!
