There’s no better way to greet the spring weather then with a new wreath on your front door. Succulents seem to be all the rage right now and if you are anything like me, you can’t keep the real ones alive, so this Modern Faux Succulent wreath is a happy solution. Stylish and durable, it’s the perfect addition to your entryway this spring.
Selection of faux succulents (purchased at the local craft supply store)
Round Metal Hoop
Floral wire and cutters
Twine (if needed)
STEP 1. Layout your arrangement of succulents. I had some going up the side then some hanging off the bottom with a few larger ones in the centre.
STEP 2. Start at the top and tightly wrap the succulent stem onto the wire hoop with the floral wire. You’ll want to wrap the wire very tightly so they stay in place on the wire hoop.
STEP 3. Lay your next succulent in so that it covers the stem of the first one and wire it tightly onto the hoop.
STEP 4. Continue this until all your succulents are wired onto the hoop and stay in place. Clip your floral wire and tuck the sharp end in.
STEP 5. If you have spots where the succulents don’t overlay and the stems and wire are exposed, wrap with twine to cover the gaps.
STEP 6. Hang your wreath on
your front door as a warm welcome
to both your guests and the warm spring weather.
