DIY Pumpkin Succulent Planter

Our love for succulents has never faded. We love them, year-round! So, recently when we took a trip to find pumpkins at a garden center and saw pumpkin planters with succulents, we were head-over-heels in love. We made our own versions of the pumpkin planter {we bought the one with the skeleton}. This no-carve Halloween arrangement can be made for friends and family this Halloween and Thanksgiving season, and when pumpkin season is over, transfer the arrangement to a more festive winter holiday base.

Step 5: Spray hair glitter on the arrangement. This can be wiped off later, but the sparkle is so cute!

You’re done. To keep the succulents alive, spray them with water.
