Need a pretty fall centerpiece idea?

Try making this easy and stylish DIY succulent pumpkin centerpiece as an idea to display on your kitchen table this fall. It even makes a thoughtful hostess gift!

This is such a FUN craft, you’ll want to warm up that glue gun and start right away! In fact, I think these succulent pumpkins would be such an adorable craft to do with friends as a creative girls night.

Grab some gourd-eous supplies from your craft store!

You’re gonna need a large and preferably flat-shaped faux pumpkin. Michaels has some nice varieties of real-looking craft and decorative pumpkins this year if you’re looking for one like mine! My faux succulents are also from Michael’s. Make sure to always have your paper or digital coupons ready for extra savings when shopping there.

If you happen to already have any craft pumpkins on hand which can use a refresh, use those (you can even paint them as desired first).

  • Separate and cut apart the succulents into smaller pieces. Start with your largest pieces and hot glue them down to the pumpkin first.

  • Keep adding and arranging smaller pieces until you reach the desired fullness on your pumpkin. Also fill in any empty spots with additional moss if desired, using glue. I added a few feathers too, but that’s optional.

I’m so in LOVE with this pumpkin centerpiece!

I chose a white pumpkin for that farmhouse vibe, and I love the contrast with the succulents. What a fun and simple craft idea that you can use year after year. I had fun arranging these succulents, and I can’t wait to make another. I think this would such a fun gift idea, too!

Have a more limited budget? Check out my miniature Dollar Tree succulent pumpkin I put together! Yep, this is a $1 pumpkin!

I first painted the orange Styrofoam pumpkin according to THESE instructions, and then I inserted the larger succulent to the top, which is also from Dollar Tree. I also glued moss and small pieces of leftover succulents pieces from the larger pumpkin!

Want to use real pumpkins and succulents?!

You can, and it will last a couple months with some extra care of the living succulents. In fact, Hip2Save sidekick Emily, makes these incredible living centerpieces, pictured above, each year, as a tradition with her family. She confirms they do last through the holiday season. Head to for full directions on how to make a succulent pumpkin centerpiece using real succulents.

“My mom and I hosted a party making these real pumpkin succulent arrangements in her garage, and we had like 20 women come. You had to BYOG (bring own gourd) and an appetizer and everyone had a great time! To keep the succulents alive, I would spray them with some water every other day. “ -Emily S.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
