Succulent Summer Wreaths

As we get ready for summer we also welcome a decor reset that accents all of the beautiful flowers and plants that have become available. This succulent wreath is an easy and inexpensive way to brighten up your space. You can source the materials from your local craft shop and the succulents from any local nursery. Here are some simple steps to create this beautiful wreath:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Wooden Wreath

Moss (including sphagnum moss)

Succulents

Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

Floral Wire or Greening Pins

Trimming Scissors

Step 2: Begin by hot gluing the moss to the base of the wreath. This will create a foundation that the succulents can rest on top of.

Step 3: Cut your succulents where the stem meets the soil so you’re left with just the head of the succulent. Next, cut a piece of floral wire that is long enough that it can wrap around the wreath. Use the floral wire and wrap it around, winding it between the petals around the base of the succulent.

Step 4: Lay out your succulents on the wreath before adhering them. Attach your succulent by wrapping the wire around the wreath and twisting the ends together at the back of the wreath. 

Step 5: Repeat. I decided to only cover the base of the wreath with moss and succulents but you can continue around the entire wreath if you like.

Step 6: Mist the succulents once a week.

Hope you have great success making your very own succulent wreath. For a step by step guide you can head over to my Instagram page @hookandgarden for a “how to” video. Enjoy!
