How To Make A Succulent Wreath

 If you are looking for Link Party #29 CLICK HERE.

Last week after bible study, a group of us ladies got together and made a succulent wreath.  It was so much fun and very easy!  These wreaths are so simple to care for.  They do not require alot of water and they do well in the sun and shade – very low maintenance – my kind of plant.   You can hang them or use them as a table decoration (pretty with a candle in the middle).

Supplies Needed

2 Metal Wreaths (same size)
Succulents
Planting Mix (Miracle Grow Moisture Control)
Fishing Line
Sphagnum Moss
Scissors
Burlap Ribbon
Floral Pins
Sharpy Pen (or something to poke a hole into the moss)

My BFF, did a great job setting everything up for us!

Step 1:  Fill a bowl with water and add the moss, making sure that the moss is submerged all the way into the water.  Soak your moss for at least 1 hour.

We even had gloves!  The woman thinks of everything 🙂

Step 2: Begin by grabbing a handful of moss and squeezing out all of the water.

Step 3:  Begin attaching your moss to the front of a wreath.  Pack it tight and push it through the wires so that it stays.

Step 4:  Once you have the front of your wreath covered, turn it over and put your potting soil into the back of the wreath.

Step 5:  Place the 2nd wreath on top of the potting soil.

Step 6:  Attach moss to the 2nd side of the wreath.  Make sure that you add moss to the sides.

Step 7:    Cut a long piece of fishing line (about 3-4 ft) and wrap around your wreath (spacing widely) to hold it together.  I went around my twice (2nd time was the opposite way).   Tie off with a knot.

Step 8: Using a sharpie (or anything to poke a hole) poke a hole where you want to plant your succulent.

Step 9: As you plant your succulents, use the floral pins to hold them in.  Don’t put the pin through the actual plant, just try to  “catch” part of the plant to hold it down.

Step 9:  Be sure that you leave some room to put your bow on… You might want to do this before you start putting in your succulents!

You can learn from my mistakes 🙂

I love how they turned out!

Be sure to water your wreath regularly until the succulent’s roots get established.
