Are you hosting people for Thanksgiving this year? We are going to Tucson to visit my sister. But I decided to create this succulent pumpkin arrangement for Thanksgiving, thinking it would be easy to recreate there!

I love succulents. Over summer, I started growing my own succulents and they’ve been slowly growing. I wasn’t sure what to do with all of these little succulents I had.
I had planned to plant them and maybe gift some for Thanksgiving. But I found these mini pumpkins at Sprouts and knew these succulents would look so cute.
I imagine a little succulent pumpkin at each place setting on a Thanksgiving table. How cute would these look?! Then each of your guests can take home their own little succulent pumpkin.
And of course if you’re going to have a mini succulent pumpkin for each guest, you should also have a big pumpkin for the center of the table. I think these fairy tale pumpkins are absolutely gorgeous and are perfect for succulents.
Succulent Pumpkin Arrangement for Thanksgiving
All you need for this project are pumpkins, succulents, and hot glue. Really that’s it! All you do is hot glue your succulents to the pumpkins.
It’s such a simple project. But it has a big impact!
You will need a variety of succulents. I love the way hanging succulents look on the pumpkins and create a different texture. I used string of pearls, but you could use a different hanging succulent, or also moss.
- Fairy Tale Pumpkin and/or Mini Pumpkins
- Assorted Succulents
- Hot Glue Gun
- Wash your pumpkin with mild soap and water. Let fully dry.
- Arrange your succulents on top of your pumpkins to see which arrangement you like. Trim your succulents to make sure they fit.
- Use your hot glue gun to glue the succulents to the top of your pumpkin.
Try not to glue the roots to your pumpkin so that you can still water the succulent.
Use little succulents for the mini pumpkins are bigger succulents for larger pumpkins.
Make enough mini pumpkins for all your guests and add name tags to use them as place card holders. Then every guest can take home their own succulent arrangement!
Spritz your succulents with water once a week or so to keep them fresh.
If succulents aren’t your style, you can do a pumpkin floral arrangement for Thanksgiving instead! Hope you try this DIY!
