While it may be fall in the majority of the country with cooling temps and changing colors, I’m still feeling temperatures over 90 degrees here in the Phoenix area. So it’s hard to completely give myself over to all things cozy and pumpkin related. As a way to find a happy medium in my seasonal decor, I decided to combine the fall staple – a pumpkin – and a super trendy summer item – the succulent – to create one fabulous piece of decor that adds a twist to the usual. These succulent pumpkins are remarkably simple to put together, but adds that punch to stand out from the typical pumpkin crowd!
Supplies needed to make your own succulent pumpkins:
- Paper Mache or Other Craft Pumpkins
- Artificial Succulents
- DecoArt Metallic Craft Paint in Copper
- Paint Brush
- Painter’s Tape
- Hot Glue Gun
Step Two. Paint the bottom portion of the pumpkin with the metallic paint. Because the paint is quick-drying, you can add a second coat almost immediately. Make sure that none of the paper mache shows through the paint. Allow it to dry to completely.
