What Will I Need to Make a Faux Succulent Wreath?

These are the items used to make this succulent wreath. And this wreath will last ‘forever’ because faux succulents are its base.

How Do I Make an Early Spring Succulent Wreath?

You can make your own spring succulent wreath in just a few minutes, using this tutorial.

Want to upcycle your grapevine wreath for ‘new’ seasonal decor? Using floral wire and simply sticking the stems into the grapevine allows you to reuse the base over and over, just like I did with my 10-minute DIY Fall Wreath.

  1. Take your floral wire and cut one piece into about four or five 3-inch pieces and bend them into a “U” shape.
  2. (a) Take your moss and place different textures (and colors, if you want) in patches around the inside of the wreath. (b) Using your u-shaped wire pieces, anchor the moss by pushing the wire through the wreath. No need to twist the wire in the back.
  3. Cut your succulents and florals apart leaving about a two-inch stem on each of them.  This will ensure they stay put when you insert them into the grapevine.DIY 10-minute spring succulent wreath tutorial steps
  4. Use a large succulent as your ‘main event’ piece on the wreath, then add another smaller piece next to it. Just push the wire stems into the grapevine wreath.
  5. Add one medium-sized succulent to give it some interest and color.
  6. Your white peonies are added to the ends of the succulent arrangements (6a and 6b). (Remember to use some buds, for added color and texture).DIY 10-minute spring succulent wreath tutorial steps
  7. In the center of the arrangement, tuck another smaller succulent and another bud or two from the flower stems under the larger succulents so they peek-out and surprise you!
  8. As the final touch, add a couple of long succulent stems at the top of the arrangement, and another smaller stem near the bottom of the arrangement.tutorial steps for easy diy succulent wreath
  9. Stand back and say, “I did it!”

    1. Kay… I have not been a ‘succulent type of gal’ either! I was just thinking about how much I hated that my mom liked to collect all the succulents and put them all over her garden. I thought they were so ugly. But, if we put our own twist on them… and maybe add some white peonies (everything is better with peonies, right?), it takes on a whole new look! Thanks for the kind words, and be sure to let me know when you make one! 😉
