The Easiest Centerpiece To DIY: Succulent Pumpkin Patch Centerpiece

After stumbling across a few inspiring images on Pinterest [...] I decided I needed my own succulent pumpkin combination, but I wanted to create something with a bit more seasonal staying power. I wanted to put something together that would allow me to ditch the pumpkins after Thanksgiving and replace them with something Christmas-y. So I used the wood shim planter box I made a couple months ago to create a succulent pumpkin patch centerpiece for my breakfast room table.

This was the easiest centerpiece to throw together. Literally, it was done in less than 10 minutes. Once I had all the succulents planted, I added in a little green and spanish moss for texture and then layered in these white spray painted foamkins.

Like I said, easy peasy.  And what I love most is that when we're done chowing down on the turkey I can simply put my foamkins away for next year and replace them with mercury glass balls... or maybe some paper mache reindeer? Hmm... not sure on that one yet.
