The leaves are changing colors, the weather is cooling down (kind of), and there are pumpkins as far as the eye can see.   I know your first thought is to take those pumpkins and carve a face into them, but we think you should try a different approach this year.  Show some love to all the mini pumpkins out there.  The possibilities are endless for decorating these little guys.  We chose to create mini pumpkin succulent holders that you can use as holiday decorations, centerpieces, or just to keep around the house since they are so cute.


  • 3 mini pumpkins
  • 3 succulents
  • spoon
  • knife

Step 1: Cut an opening in the top of your pumpkins large enough to fit your succulents.  After cutting the opening, take the top portion of the pumpkin off and scoop the insides of the pumpkin out.

Step 2: Put each succulent, and the dirt attached to the succulent, into each emptied out pumpkin.  You can add more dirt to secure the succulent if needed.

Step 3: Water each succulent and admire your work!  Wasn’t that easy?
