Turn a craft pumpkin into a succulent terrarium that’s perfect for the fall and Halloween season in just a few simple steps!
Can you believe that tomorrow we turn the calendar to September? With every month that goes by, I continue to question where this year has gone. I must admit that I’ve had just enough of the heat and humidity summer’s thrown at us. I’m ready for cooler, jacket weather. I know that means that the cold, harsh winter and snow isn’t far behind. Honestly, I think I’d rather deal with snow than breaking a sweat when I walk outside (but ask me again when we’re shoveling out in a few months).
One thing I’ve been entirely too excited for is the return of pumpkin everything (admit it, you’re excited, too)! I’m already pinning pumpkin recipes up a storm and I can’t wait to decorate pumpkins with my husband again this year! Since it’s practically September, I figured I would start working on some fall and Halloween crafts.
I went to Michaels for a few things last week and couldn’t help myself while browsing some of their fall craft items. Craft pumpkins were already marked down 40% off! I’ve had the idea to make a terrarium in a pumpkin probably since last fall. So I bought a diorama craft pumpkin and a few things to fill it with.
I started building my terrarium with a layer of moss at the bottom. Then, I glued in some artificial air plants and succulents that I had on hand from other terrariums I’ve made. I placed some mini pumpkins in-between. The last thing I did was add glitter spiders around the outside of the pumpkin for a spooky, Halloween touch. Now, I just have to contain my excitement a little longer to put this pumpkin out on display!

- Begin making your terrarium by hot gluing a little moss onto the bottom of the inside of the pumpkin.
