Succulents may just be the most gorgeous plants ever. I just bought some yesterday that are arranged all nice in a little planter. It now sits in the middle of my kitchen table. The perfect centerpiece that I’ve wanted forever. Guess how long it will take me to kill them? I’m giving myself a week and if they are still alive after that, I’m calling it a success. That’s how bad I am with plants. Thank goodness for fake succulents, right? I got some amazing fake succulents at SNAP Conference and knew immediately what I wanted to do with them. My front door had been bare for a while, ever since I took down my Christmas wreath. It needed a new wreath and I just wanted something a bit different. So, my succulent wreath was born. You’re welcome.
^^^PIN THIS SO YOU REMEMBER HOW TO MAKE IT^^^
SUCCULENT WREATH SUPPLIES
Trim your succulent picks so the ends are short enough that they don’t poke all the way through the wreath. Aren’t these the most gorgeous fake plants you’ve ever seen? LOVE that pop of red!
Using a pencil, make holes in the wreath form where you want your succulents to go.
Place hot glue on the succulent picks and place them in the holes.
Cut the boxwood into strips and glue each strip to the wreath. At first, I cut these off individually but realized the process would go much quicker if I just left them in the rows and glued the rows on.
I first started with the top of the wreath and placed one row of boxwood all along the top side. Then I placed one row on the inside and another row of boxwood on the outside of the wreath.
When you are finished, your wreath should be nice and full. It will be able to lie flat against a surface because there is no boxwood on the back.
My front door is so happy now that it has a new wreath. And I’m pretty sure this one will last more than a week!
