Looking for a way to spruce up your fall decor? Armstrong Garden Centers has just the class for that! Their “Pumpkin With Succulents Make & Take” class helps you create a fun and unique planter for your porch or patio with a pumpkin and succulents. This is a great class to take with friends as it promotes creativity and is a really social event. I recently made one myself and I totally impressed myself with how easy it was. Now it is on my front porch as a centerpiece!
How much is the class?
The class is $49 and is offered on Saturday, October 21st at 9am. Advanced registration IS required.
The first thing we did is pick out our pumpkins. I chose a pale orange one as I preferred the look of it over the bright orange typical pumpkins. Next we chose our succulents and laid everything out where we thought we would like to place it. Then we used Elmer’s multi-use spray adhesive to glue everything onto the pumpkin.
Start with the moss first. Then place the bigger succulents on top of it. I alternated colors so it would pop. Once you have added all your succulents, make sure nothing is falling and you are good to go! Just use a spray bottle to moisten the succulents a few times a week and it should last a very long time!
Armstrong also has mini pumpkins, corn, and pumpkin plants that would make a great addition to you succulent pumpkin.
However, my thighs worked just as well and I got out of there with 3!
