How to Make DIY Mini Pumpkin Planters


  • Mini pumpkins
  • Scrap knife or pumpkin carving tool

Step 1: Start by cutting a hole all the way around the stem on the pumpkin, about ½ inch out from the stem (or more for a larger plant).

Step 3: Next, remove the seeds from inside the pumpkin with a spoon.
