We got these mini succulent plants at homedepot. I believe they were in a 2.5″ pot. We removed the succulents and wrapped the pot in cling wrap.
Because this cement is so fine it pretty much adheres the tights to the pumpkin if you let it set completely before removing them. In this case you’ll need to remove the tights and rubber bands about 15 minutes after you apply the rubber bands. The tights will still be wet which will help them easily remove. If you wait until the tights have dried onto the pumpkin it’s too late and it’ll seem like they were super glued. You’ll know they’re ready to be removed when you touch the concrete and can’t indent it but it’s still wet.
To complete it cut off any extra cling wrap sticking out and insert plant you succulents in the pot. You can also wait to remove the cling wrap. I find once the pumpkins set (at least 24 hours) the cling wrap tears out nicely. Keep in mind we didn not remove the pot we left it inside and only ripped off all the cling wrap around it.
