Make a stunning succulent pumpkin centerpiece using a painted paper mache pumpkin and faux succulents!
It is still a bit warm for me, but a girl can dream.
Fall is my favorite season.
I love the cooler temperatures, the gorgeous colors, and all of the amazing decor.
Bring on all.the.pumpkins!
Follow along as I show you how to create this beautiful DIY succulent pumpkin centerpiece for your fall decor.

Acrylic paint (Silver Sage Green) (affiliate link)
Craft foam (affiliate link)
Faux succulents (affiliate link)
Note: Select succulents with warmer colors for this fall arrangement!
Use the box cutter to carefully cut a hole ~3-4″ wide at the top of the pumpkin.
Save the stem for another project if you like!
Depending on the color you select may depend on how many coats of paint you need.
I like how a single coat looked on my pumpkin.
I love the “Cinderella” pumpkins so I selected a greenish-silver-blue color.
Fill the pumpkin with the pieces until it is completely stuffed.
Trim the stems as needed with wire cutters.
Start with the larger blooms and press them into the craft foam.
Go back and gradually add in the smaller blooms as filler.
Don’t be afraid to take apart succulent picks that have multiple blooms to spread them out in the arrangement.
How easy was that??
It pairs well with other vintage items like this old silver tray and rustic votive holders.
And I love that I can bring it out year after year since it’s all faux!
That, my friends, is my favorite kind of craft.
