DIY Succulent Concrete Pumpkin

We couldn’t be more excited about the fall: cozy sweater weather, colorful scarves and hats, hot tea, scented candles. And, of course, pumpkins. Real pumpkins, ceramic pumpkins, paper pumpkins, concrete pumpkins. Wait, a concrete pumpkin?

Today, Cook It will share with you a charming succulent concrete pumpkin DIY using tights and concrete to get you as inspired and enthusiastic about the coming season as we are. This little project is a lot easier than it may look, plus it is super cute, unique, and fun to do. Get your supplies ready, and let’s get crafting!

Concrete Pumpkin DIY

Supplies:

  • a pair of sheer tights
  • small potted succulent
  • cling film
  • 4 rubber bands
  • quick-setting cement
  • water

Instructions:

  1. To begin with, prep your tights and pots. Because cement starts setting pretty quick, it is best to have everything ready before mixing it. Cut the tights off at the bottom, measuring at roughly 12 inches in length and put them aside. Next, remove succulents from the pot and wrap it with cling film. This will stop the concrete from entering the pot.
  2. Mix 4 cups of concrete mix with a little under a cup of cold water. This makes enough for one pumpkin.
  3. Immediately fill your tights with the concrete mix. Then, go ahead and insert the little pot in the center, making sure that no cement covers it. Tie the leftover tights in a knot on top.
  4. To create a pumpkin shape, pull rubber bands around the tights. Rubber bands should be pretty large, so they do not slash into the pumpkin, because then you won’t be able to remove them.
  5. Do not let your pumpkin dry too much before removing the tights — wait for approximately 10-15 minutes. At this point, your pumpkin should be wet yet solid, and you won’t be able to make an indent in it.
  6. Cut off any extra cling film and place your succulents in the pot.

That’s it! Don’t you just love how this succulent concrete pumpkin turned out? We hope this inspired you to make your own little pumpkin-shaped planters. If you enjoyed this article, be sure to share it with your friends!

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I actually enjoyed reading it, you could be a great author.I will make certain to bookmark your blog and may come back in the foreseeable future. I want to encourage you to continue your great job, have a nice evening!

Almost all of what you mention happens to be astonishingly legitimate and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is 1 position I am not necessarily too comfortable with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual main idea of your point, allow me see just what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that
you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but
instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read.
I’ll certainly be back.

I was more than happy to uncover this great site.
I want to to thank you for ones time just for this fantastic read!!
I definitely loved every part of it and i also have you book marked to check out new
things in your blog.

Hi, i think that i saw you visited my web site so i came to “return the favor”.I’m trying to find
things to improve my site!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!!

I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading incredibly slow for me.
Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be
able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Many thanks!
