A few weeks ago, I had a few of my friends over to assemble gift boxes for our moms just in time for Mother’s Day. We set up shop in my front yard — bringing out a table from inside, chilled Oyster Bay Wines and all of the fixings for the gift boxes. They turned out super cute and my mother and mother-in-law absolutely loved them! Since I had everyone gathered, I thought that it would be the perfect time to do a little DIY wreaths, too. I’ve been itching to do a wreath with succulents because it’s simple and they last a long time!
Even though the wreath is easy to make the results are impressive. You just need the following:
- Succulent plants
- Preserved Moss
- Grapevine Wreaths
- Floral Wire
- Hot Glue & Glue Gun
- First, figure out the placement of the moss and succulents.
- Add the moss to the wreath with hot glue & floral wire.
- Carefully remove the succulent from the pot shaking off the excess soil. Be careful when handling the succulents because they’re delicate.
- Using floral wire attach the succulent to the wreath.
- Use glue to secure in place.
- Repeat as needed until you have attached the desired amount of succulents to the wreath.
Simple as that! We had so much fun doing this together and the girls loved that they were able to bring a little springtime greenery back home! It’s always a good idea to change up girls night with a creative activity.
