DIY Pumpkin Succulent Instructions:

Step 1: Spray tacky adhesive on the top part of the pumpkin, covering the full circumference around the stem, about 2″-3″ from the stem. This will act as the base to adhere the moss.

Step 2: While the adhesive spray is still tacky, adhere the moss to the top of the pumpkin, building a layer about 1/2″ to 1″ in depth.

Step 3: Using clear gel tacky glue, begin to adhere the succulents to the moss by gluing the bottom of the succulents. Gently hold the succulent in place for about 30-60 seconds, to help it stick better.

Since the succulents are not planted, don’t expect it to grow or flourish for more than a few weeks. To keep the succulents looking healthy, mist the plants with a water spray bottle weekly.

      Hi Shannon, since they aren’t planted, they are expected to die. This centerpiece should last at least 1-2 weeks, if not longer. Succulents prefer bright light, so it’s ideal to keep it outside or near a window (after using for a special event).
