The final project from my collaboration with Brittany at The House That Lars Built is this fun monogram!
After discussing doing the BOO on a pumpkin, we thought it might be cool to cover an entire pumpkin with succulents and just leave the outline of a letter. It was probably one of the more time consuming projects, but I’m really happy with how it turned out!
Here’s what you’ll need to make a pumpkin like this:
Start by drawing a block letter on the pumpkin with the marker.
Cover the marker line with small succulents. Use the hot glue or floral glue to adhere the succulents to the pumpkin.
I used cold-hardy Sedums to create the outline.
Once you have the outline covered with succulents, cover the rest of the pumpkin.
For this pumpkin I decided to use some cold hardy Sedums and Sempervivums so they would survive outside if it happened to freeze several nights in a row.
And that’s it! I alternated Sempervivums with the smaller Sedums. I really love how it turned out!
It’s been a lot of fun to do all of these projects with succulents and pumpkins! I have to say it has definitely made me even more excited about my favorite season of the year.
