DIY Faux Succulent Boho Pumpkin Planter

October 16, 2021

I have already put up my fall decor but I couldn't help creating one more thing to add when I found a cute little styrofoam pumpkin at a garage sale.


I have been inspired by the pretty pumpkin succulent planters I've seen lately. I shared one on my Facebook page that is really pretty.


So, when I found the pumpkin for just .25 cents, I knew what I was going to make.

Since my decor this year is more neutral, I decided to paint it off-white but it would be cute orange too.

Then I put some florist's foam inside so that I'd have something to stick the succulent stems into.

And then moss to cover the foam.

I had a bag of faux succulents that I picked up at Goodwill. A couple of them were too big so I just used some wire cutters and cut the bottoms off.

I added the light green stem from Walmart and one of the largest succulents that I cut down.

Then I started working around that, adding smaller plants.

One last spikey thing and some feathers I picked up in my yard. I think the feathers give it a boho feel.

I wanted to make a tassel for it too like I had seen on a few of those that inspired me so I used some green yarn and vintage green trim I had and just created a simple braid with the tassels on the end.

Then I glued it around the top edge of the pumpkin.

Next up is this basket. It's actually been listed in my Etsy shop for a couple years and hasn't sold so I've decided to repurpose it.

  1. So cute! Since it's not orange, it'll work year round, too.

  2. I love the boho vibe of your pumpkin succulent planter, Tania. The feathers and the trailing green stems make your pumpkin planter so unique and stand out above the others I've seen so far. Love it!
