Start by mixing some cement mix with water and filling the nylons with the mixture. Your mixture can not be to soupy as it wouldn't hold shape if it's too soupy. Following that wrap a small plastic pot with plastic wrap and insert it into the center of your pumpkin. I got this tiny pot from some succulent plants I bought at home depot.
Succulent Concrete Pumpkins
Hi everyone! Here's how I made some succulent pumpkins. They're super easy to make and with this cement mix they only take a few hours to set. You'll just need some nylons, cement mix, rubber bands and a small plastic pot.
Tie off the remainder of your nylons and attach rubber bands around it to create the pumpkin shape. Make sure your rubber bands aren't too tight. If they're slashing to much into your pumpkin they will make chunks come off when removing later on. Something to keep in mind :) ( I share more about the right water to cement mix ratio (recipe) on the blog. You can check it out here - https://www.lilyardor.com/succulent-concrete-pumpkins/ )
Isn't it too cute! If you're wondering how I got them to look mossy you can get the tutorial here - https://www.lilyardor.com/concrete-pumpkin-diy/
It's a trick I picked up from a previous DIY and doesn't require weeks of growing moss. Only takes about 10 minutes.
I'm in love with these succulents!! All from homedepot. I bought a few and separated them before planting.
That's it!! Thank you so much for tuning it! I hope this is helpful and inspires you to create!
