You can focus on Halloween, you can focus on Thanksgiving, but there’s one thing that always makes the cut: pumpkins.

That’s right. Pumpkins are the ultimate fall decor piece.

Whether you’re decorating for one particular holiday or the season in general, they always fit right in.

Instead of plain pumpkins, you should try your hand at something a little bit more unique. Try turning a big pumpkin into a succulent planter!

All you need is a large pumpkin, some spray adhesive, some moss, and succulents of choice.

Start by spraying the pumpkin with spray adhesive, then lay down your moss. After that, gather your succulents.

If there is any dirt on your potted succulents, remove it. The succulents will root into the moss. Use hot glue to attach the succulents to the moss.

Don’t worry about the hot glue damaging the succulents. It won’t! Arrange the succulents however you see fit, then you’re done!

Pretty simple, right? Now you’re probably wondering how to take care of it without it dying. It’s a lot easier than it seems.

Use a spray bottle and spray the plants twice a week to keep them hydrated. Make sure they’re getting enough sun as well.

Once the pumpkin begins to rot in a few months, cut away the moss and the roots and transfer it directly to a planter. So easy, right?
