Spooky Succulent Bowl

Spooky Succulent Bowl

As I had to re-pot some succulents out on my deck, I figured I may as well spookyify them since Halloween is coming up and make a table centerpiece! I also went to Michael’s today for some craft supplies and found lots of Halloween themed miniatures on sale.

Succulents that are rootbound, leggy or overcrowded are a good choice for replanting and re-pupping into a new larger home.


I found a cauldron pot, which has no drain hole, but as this is going to be decor for less than two months, the succulents will be just fine. You may use ANY pot of your choosing, just remember that it has a drain hole if you water it inside!

I do however line the bottom of the pot with rocks so there is better drainage on the bottom. The rest of the space may be filled with existing potting soil, fine decomposed granite, or even sand.


Take some moss cover (your choice of color) and spread around the top. 

Insert the miniature Halloween decor into the pot (hot glue pieces if necessary). Try to stagger bigger, taller pieces towards the back.


Add about 1 cup of water.

Succulents do need to be watered about once a week, but just a little bit. Soggy succulents will get wilty. 

These came out so cute that I’ll make a few for friends. Plus, I have tons of extra miniatures from Michaels left over!
