Your front door has never looked so magical!
Succulents are adorning just about everything these days — from wedding bouquets to bracelets, necklaces, and rings, these little desert plants are the real MVPs of modern style. In this tutorial, we’re taking it up a notch and showing you how to create your own overloaded succulent wreath to give your front door a serious upgrade that will last year-round!
• 50–75 succulent cuttings
• Scissors or pencil to make holes in the moss
*Optional: Butterfly accents and stem wires (or whatever themed accent your heart desires!)
Adding the Succulents:
Select all your succulent cuttings for this project a few days prior so they have dried out and calloused over.
- Use scissors or a pencil to poke a hole in the moss big enough to fit the stem of your succulent
- Be sure there’s at least 1” of stem showing. You can take off the bottom leaves and set those aside to propagate later and have brand new succulents! See our video here on how to propagate here!
- Place the succulent cutting straight in the hole you made.
- Use greening pins to secure.
- Repeat steps 1–4 for all succulents you add.
*Tips for Adding Succulents:
- Lay out your succulents before hand to see the direction you want to go.
- Use bigger cuttings first and then fill in all the empty spots with small to medium-sized cuttings.
*Optional*: Adding Accents:
- Place your stem wire in the moss and attach butterflies (or other accent) to the end to secure.
