Local boutique Belle & Union has come up with a new creative way to make use of your pumpkins. Rather than carving your pumpkin to make a jack-o'-lantern, you can instead turn it into a pumpkin succulent.

Begin by using as sturdy a pumpkin as possible. Carve it out clean and let it sit overnight to dry up completely. Choose your preferred succulents and sit them in water overnight, as well.

Belle & Union suggests filling your pumpkin with pea-sized gravel in order to keep it dry and to hold the pumpkin in shape after it starts to wilt. Plant your succulents inside, add whatever greenery you would like and set it out for everyone to see.
