Tired of the same ol’ leaves and acorn decor for fall? Why not modernize your decor and color scheme with a new look that’s fresh, but still fall festive!
To complete this project you will need the following:
Paint- we used In the Moment T18-15
Step 1: Select a pot that fits
Select a flower pot that is the right size for your pumpkin.
Step 2: Trace pot lip
You will need to cut a hole into your pumpkin large enough to fit the pot in. Place the widest part of the pot, on top of your pumpkin and trace a line around it.
Step 3: Carve hole into pumpkin
With a knife, carve a hole into your pumpkin following the marker line. Remove pumpkin top when you’ve made a full rotation.
Step 4: Fit pot
Place your pot in the hole to make sure it’s wide enough to sit down into the pumpkin. If it doesn’t fit, use the knife to expand the holes until it does.
Step 5: Hollow out pumpkin
Remove the pumpkin innards with a spoon.
Step 6: Paint pumpkin
Paint your pumpkins to add color variety to your fall decor. We chose to paint ours, In the Moment T18-15, our 2018 Color of the Year. Completely coat the outside of the pumpkin and allow it to dry before moving on to the next step.
Step 7: Pot succulents
Arrange your succulents as you wish them to look and pot as so. Add dirt to your pot if needed.
Step 8: Place pot into pumpkin and display
Place your succulent pot into your pumpkin and place somewhere all can see.
