Print out a copy of the template and enlarge it so that it is approximately three inches from the tip of the nose to the back of the tail. Trace it onto cardboard and cut it out. Make one for each of your guests.

Painted Squirrels

In a well-ventilated area, spread out newspaper and spray your cardboard squirrels with chalkboard paint. Allow them to dry.

Add Dirt

Fill each vessel with potting soil.

Add Life

Plant a few succulents on the edge of the vessel.

Moss Filling

Cover the remaining soil in the vessel with moss.

Gourd Topper

Place a gourd in the center of the arrangement.

The Finishing Touch

With the chalkboard marker, add the guest names to the squirrels, then tuck them into the place settings. These can be made a few days ahead of your get together.
