While my daughter Kate, of Twice Treasured, was visiting for Mother’s Day, she mentioned a beautiful living succulent wreath project she had recently pinned on Pinterest. She commented that sometimes she, like a lot of us, was guilty of pinning projects with the intention of doing them but then not following through. This project, however, was so perfect for us that we decided to make time and actually create this beautiful succulent wreath.
Two wire wreath forms
Medium gauge wire and wire cutters
Mat floral moss
Line one of the wire wreath forms with the mat moss
Pack with soil (the moss should keep the soil from passing through the back of the wire
Gently work the roots of the succulents through the wire of the other wire form so that the plants are on the outside and the roots are on the inside
Place the planted form on top of the soil form and wire them together working the roots into the soil
Using your fingers, gently work more moss into the wire around the plants
Cut four-inch pieces of wire and bend them into hairpin shapes. Press the hairpins into the wreath among the plants and moss to secure
Water thoroughly and keep the wreath flat for a couple of weeks or until the plants have rooted then it can be hung vertically.
