Here’s the finished Faux Succulent Wreath
I love the way it turned out! It has been in our dining room ever since I made it in the spring and I don’t intend to take it down until at least Christmas.
In case you missed the steps in the video:
Step One – Remove the stems from the succulents
You’ll want to remove the tops of all the succulents and in some cases cut the groupings down to smaller blooms and greenery. You can typically do this by just popping them off the faux stem, or cutting them with thick heavy crafting scissors.
Step Two – Arrange your Succulents
Practice your layout on your wreath. Make sure to mix up colours, textures and sizes. Place groupings so they trail and make sure the succulents are all able to touch the grapevine wreath twigs or they won’t sit properly.
Step Three – Glue the Succulents
Use a heavy duty glue gun to affix the succulents to the wreath, pressing down as you go. Leave it flat to dry for a few hours prior to hanging. Hang with a ribbon or hook!
