Succulent Wreath DIY
Make your very own Faux Succulent Wreath with these easy-to-follow instructions. Ditch the tradition evergreens by adding beautiful succulents to your year-round wreath. These trendy plants can be found at most floral shops, however we decided to stick with a more permanent, low-maintenance faux succulent instead. Follow our easy steps to create your very own special wreath!
1. Select your faux succulents:
You’ll want a good assortment of textures and shapes–long varieties to spill out of the wreath, larger specimens to grab the eye and smaller kinds to fill in the gaps. Choose several varieties of succulents and create a pattern you’ll follow throughout the project or wing it and create an effortless look.
(We found large bunches of succulents at Michael's for under $5 each.)
2. Pull succulents apart:
Take advantage of every piece on your succulent bunch! Pull apart individual plants from the stem to create more pieces for your wreath. Next, ditch the bulky stem.
3. Assemble the wreath:
Arrange the larger succulents into groups towards the bottom of the wreath. Then roughly arrange the smaller cuttings around the rest of the wreath, generally placing them where they might look best. Hot glue the base of the plant to the desired spot. If the glue isn't doing the trick, reinforce your plants with plant wire.
Glue small ornaments or holly berries around your wreath for a more festive look! Mini LED string lights also create a beautifully lit wreath.
