I don’t know about you but I love succulents! I think what I love about them is there are so many different colors, sizes, shapes and textures of succulents. I have been wanting to make a succulent wreath because they look so natural and look good at any time of the year.
I’m really happy with how this wreath came out. This tutorial will show you how to create a really nice faux succulent wreath that you can hang inside your front door or inside your home.
Here are the materials that you will need:
List of Supplies Needed for Faux Succulent Wreath
- Various sizes of succulents, here are the links to some different types you can use:
- 12 inch STYROFOAM® Wreath Form – White: I like this one because it has a flat base which makes it easier to arrange the succulents and it can hold the weight of the larger succulents very well 12 inch STYROFOAM® Wreath Form – White
- Moss Variety Pack by Ashland® – I like this one because the different moss colors and textures look very natural. Moss Variety Pack by Ashland®
- Glue gun
Here are some of the succulents I used:
Step 1: remove backing from the succulents
- I started with the largest succulents 1st before moving on to the smaller ones. The larger succulents have a backing that you can just twist off and then you will have a smaller stem.
Step 2: Puncture small holes into the wreath for the large succulents
- The large succulents have a bit of weight to them, so I wanted to make sure the succulents had no chance of moving around and stuck evenly to the wreath. This technique worked very well. The smaller succulents have a stem that can be bent or cut off using craft pliers.
- Space out the larger succulents around the wreath like this:
Step 3: Add the smaller succulents throughout the wreath
- Start removing the backing if any and glue in between the larger succulents. I made some smaller holes so they adhered to the wreath better.
Step 4: Add your moss
To fill in the rest of the white space around the wreath you will be adding pieces of moss in between the succulents, then cover the outside and inside the wreath. This part may take a little time, but this really gives the wreath a natural-looking feel.
There is more than one way to put this kind of wreath together, as you can see from this video:
Your wreath is finished and should look something like this:
