I’d really love nothing more than to pass this post along like I am just the most crafty, pinteresty, artsy fartsy girl out there. You know, Martha Stewart…scrapbooking…all that jazz. But the truth is, this is as crafty as it gets around here.
My mom was coming for a visit this past weekend and I wanted a fresh fall centerpiece that really gave the impression as though I was just crushing the wife life and maybe even lead her to believe that I am now in fact a true domestic goddess. These cute little blooming pumpkins take about 5 minutes to make, cost less than $10 and really put out the suzy homemaker vibes.
Keep scrolling to see how its done…
Here’s What you need:
1.Pumpkins. I chose mini ones for my dining room table but you can do large ones for your front porch too.
2. Succulents. You can do this with any plant or flower but succulents are the only plants I can keep alive for any amount of time.
3. Potting soil. You know, like dirt.
Here’s what to do:
1. Clean the pumpkin. Cut a hole in the top, remove the stem and scoop out seeds and guts. If you wash your pumpkin with 1 part bleach and 10 parts water it stays fresh longer.
2. Fill with soil. Slowly add potting soil to the bottom of your pumpkin to make a bed for your incoming plant.
3. Add your plant. I’d recommend leaving a little bit of room up top for watering. **Queue domestic goddess hair flip**
