You can have beautiful decorative pieces in your home without breaking the bank to get them. I mean, $6.00 for this Spring Succulent Wreath? If I had not made it myself I would not believe it. Check your local Dollar Store. My local store is carrying the most beautiful faux succulents that make it easy to create pretty things on a dime! I definitely caught up in the succulent craze. I think they are such a simple splash of greenery with minimal upkeep. The problem with more unusual plants is that they can cost anywhere from $4- $7 each, and they don't always work well in every setting. But with these plastic ones you can hang them and not worry about them again until you are ready to refresh your wreath a bit. Here is how I put mine together for just $6 in supplies and in about 20 minutes.
How to Make a Faux Succulent Wreath
- foam wreath form
- 3″ burlap ribbon
- 4 faux succulent plants
- glue gun/glue sticks
1. Wrap your wreath form with burlap ribbon, using hot glue to secure the end to the form. Overlapping just a bit as you go to cover it well, secure the end with glue.
2. Pull the succulent from its planter. It will come out of styrofoam easily and you can keep the styrofoam and pot for another project. Press the stems of your succulents through the holes in the burlap and into the foam firmly. Use a combination of succulent styles, including some that cascade down to give some movement and texture to your wreath. Since the wreath form was smaller I used 4 plants.
3. Use the remaining piece to create a loop around your wreath for hanging, secure well with hot glue.
You Spring Succulent Wreath is ready to hang! I would recommend indoors or on a covered porch as moisture may cause burlap to mildew.
