{diy succulent wreath}

Happy Hump day. This post is a day late, I know. Anyone else having major Instagram issues? I can’t post. I can’t comment. Stories wont load. This is day #2 and Instagram needs to get their shit together. Because, I’ve got a lot to share…lol.

First off, I have to give credit to Dixon Florist. I spotted one of these succulent wreaths on their feed right after the Holidays. I could have gone to the store and picked one up. 100% down with supporting all the local businesses. But, I’ve been craving some creativity. That’s a mouth full. Ha. Just using my hands to make shit. So, I called my succulent dealer (aka, my mom) and she dropped off an assortment of the prettiest variety from her yard.

Buying a variety of succulents can get pricey, I get it! There is a group on Facebook called: Woodland Succulent Exchange. A women named Lola Gutierrez sells variety packs for $15! She ships and even does local deliveries. Check her out! Even if you just want to plant some in your yard, it’s a really great deal!

Remember back in October, when I shared my: {fall table setting + DIY succulent pumpkin}

Then in January I shared my: {DIY $12 eucalyptus wreath}

I LOVED seeing all your photos following my two DIY’s. Makes my damn day! For reals!

Well, this is kinda the same idea. A cross between the pumpkin and the wreath. Same tools + materials. Just swapping the pumpkin for a grapevine wreath.

And can we take a moment to mention, I took this photo at 6:30 PM! Do you notice anything. Frickin sunlight! You guys, as much as the time change can suck, I’m here for it. All this extra sunshine is giving me all the spring feels.

So, I came up with a fun. SUPER SIMPLE. Springy. DIY.

Succulent wreath!

I legit spent maybe 15 minutes tops. Then I made one for my Mom. One for Nikki. Now I’m working on two more. GG + Kissey both requested one.

Here’s what you’ll do…..

Add dabs of hot glue to the bottom of the grapevine wreath and attach pieces of Spanish moss.  It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Hot glue around the stem of a succulent and place it on top of the moss.  I try to weave the stem into the wreath for a better hold. Hold in place for a few seconds to be sure the glue holds.

Continue hot gluing succulent stems and place around the bottom portion of the wreath.

That’s all there is to it. So simple. And I love the finished product.

I’ve added printable directions below too…….

Here’s what you’ll need:

Here’s what you’ll do:

First thing first – Pour yourself a big glass of wine. Or make a Margarita. A beer will work. Better yet, a martini! Yumm!

Gather materials.

Trim + clean up succulents.

Add dabs of hot glue to the bottom of the grapevine wreath and attach pieces of Spanish moss.  It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Hot glue around the stem of a succulent and place it on top of the moss.  I try to weave the stem into the wreath for a better hold. Hold in place for a few seconds to be sure the glue holds.

Continue hot gluing succulent stems and place around the bottom portion of the wreath. 

Once you’ve added all the succulents, wrap a long piece of jute twine around the top of the wreath about 10 times. Tie a knot in the back and make a loop to hang.

Wait a couple of days, the begin misting with a spray bottle about once a week.  The best part, when you’re ready to switch out your wreath….. you can gently pull each succulent out of the moss and pop them in a planter or your yard.
