“This Was Probably The Most Fun Pumpkin Activity I’ve Ever Done.”

Thank you, Sarah for sharing about your creative experience with us this past week! We love hearing that our guests had such a great time and we must say those succulent pumpkins look great!

Missed our class this week? That’s ok we’ll teach you everything you need to know to make your very own succulent pumpkin from home! Grab some floral adhesive, moss, succulents, a pumpkin and fall décor to start your simple fall centerpiece or porch accessory. First, you’ll start with your pumpkin and don’t worry.. you don’t need to do any messy carving! You’ll take your moss and cover the top area of your pumpkin. Then take your succulents (it’s best to choose a variety of colors and shapes and sizes) and place them sporadically on the freshly mossed area. If you need to peel back any of the bottom succulent petals, feel free. It’s best to create a flat surface for them to ensure they stay with the glue. Then add the goodies! You’ll probably have some areas that the succulents didn’t cover, or you just want to fill in to create a bit more festively. In our class we used wheat, fall leaves and raffia. But please feel free to use as much or as little extra fall décor! Good luck and please share a photo of your final product! We can’t wait to see.
