Fall is in full swing & that means: PUMPKINS! We love these squashes of the season and figuring out all the fun new ways to creatively use them each year. We had our October Learn + Grow Workshop this past Saturday, which is always a fun-filled saturday creating succulent pumpkin arrangements! (If you didn't go, you definitely missed out!) We wanted to share our secrets on how to create our signature pumpkin succulent arrangements!
STEP 1 | Gather up your tools & what you'll need. These items include:
- Pumpkin, any kind will do, but the fairytale pumpkins have always been our favorite! Pumpkins with a flat top will work best for this project. - Moss - Hot Glue or Crafting Glue - As many Succulents as you wish! - Floral Wire
Step 2 | Use a hot glue gun (or crafting glue) to adhere the moss onto the top of the pumpkin. You want the moss to be about 1″ deep. Trim the edges when you’re done.
Step 4 | Begin to arrange the succulents. Start with the large cuttings first and fill in with the smaller ones. Make sure you pack them in tightly and try to shake off as much excess dirt as possible so you can add more in!
Step 5 & 6: Use floral wire cut into small segments and folded in half (like pins!) to keep your succulents in place so they don't slide around on top of your pumpkin. After that, you're all done! You've made your very own Pumpkin Succulent Arrangement. Too easy right?!
Take a peek at our amazing workshop we had this weekend! EVERYONE was so creative and did such a great job creating their own arrangements!
These lovely ladies are starting off the class right! Checking which succulents are the largest and using them as a focal point; then working around that focal point.
We got down and dirty with a bunch of the mini 2" succulents we had in store. Too much fun!
They turned out great, didn't they!? We always have ton of fun during this workshop every year! We get so excited over Fall and jumping head first into a season of holidays and celebrations. Both of our locations have all of the tools you'll need to create these awesome pumpkin succulent arrangements. Don't forget to stop by if you need any tools or tips & tricks! Happy Crafting!
