Who is ready for this Plastic pumpkin trick-or-treat pot turned into a planter?
This ADORABLE Succulent Planter is easy to do and inexpensive and so cute for the entire season! You can also do this great idea with an artificial pumpkin and succulents or real white pumpkin! I started with the artificial and was pleasantly surprised how cute this turned out. Check it out!

I started off by taking the stickers off the bottom and wiping off the whole plastic pumpkin with rubbing alcohol to clean the surface so the paint will adhere.
Let it dry 1 to 2 hours before adding the gray accent. We are going to paint in the creases of the pumpkin to accent to grooves. You may want to have a little gray and white so you can work back and forth between the two to blend it to the right color. What I mean by this is if you get too much gray in the crease you can get a little white to soften out the gray. I added a quick video tip below – I apologize for the exposure but it showed the color much better:
I hope I taught you something new!! Happy Fall to you ALL!
