Slow Harvest #6 (detail white pumpkin) -- Embellish novelty pumpkins and ornamental gourds with succulents and seashells
Kathleen Barber of Erika's Fresh Flowers in Warrenton, OR, suggests beginning with an unusually colored or textured pumpkin. Attach succulent and sedum cuttings around the stem with glue. Fill any gaps with smaller succulents, dried flowers, pods, seashells and moss. These designs can be displayed inside or outside on a covered porch. (c) Kathleen Barber Photography with permission.
