DIY 10-MINUTE EASY SPRING SUCCULENT WREATH
Do you like an easy and fast DIY project?
Yep… me, too!
This early spring succulent wreath is so easy, it will only take you about 10 minutes to create!
Seriously… when I say fast, this DIY 10-minute wreath is just the ticket when you don’t have a lot of time, but want to pack a decor “punch” in your living room or the entry door to your home!
And this year, I’m using green and white for my spring decor colors. So, this faux succulent wreath was a no-brainer for My Wee Abode!
So, shall we take a look at how to create it?

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.
Also… for your convenience, I am sharing links to similar items below. However, if you can get to Michael’s or Hobby Lobby, the prices are better and everything is available in-store.
- Sunburst Grapevine Wreath (approx. 28″) This one is from Hobby Lobby with the 40% off coupon, and you can get something similar from Michael’s (wait for a sale!)
- Multi-textured/colored moss (again, use a coupon or wait for the sale)
- Assorted faux succulents (you won’t use all these for this project, but you just might want some extras for projects on the horizon)
- Small white faux peonies (mine are from Michael’s in-store)
- Floral Wire, 18 gauge (I use this floral wire all the time)
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.
- Take your floral wire and cut one piece into about four or five 3-inch pieces and bend them into a “U” shape.
- (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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Add one medium-sized succulent to give it some interest and color.
- 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).
- 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!
- 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.
- Stand back and say, “I did it!”
DIY 10-Minute Spring Grapevine Succulent Wreath
And now you can hang your early spring succulent wreath and enjoy!
Viewing mine each time I walk into my living area makes me feel all happy inside!
The black lanterns add a bit of what the decor world calls ‘grounding’ to this light and airy space.
The mini white peonies add a bit of juxtaposition (another frequently used word in decor) to the faux succulent wreath.
The last-minute succulent stems added just the smidge of “umph” that was needed.
(Trying to get photos on a rainy day can be challenging, but look dramatic, too!)
Where’s the Best Place to Hang a Faux Succulent Wreath?
You can hang an early spring wreath just about anywhere your heart desires!
- On a vintage window pane (wonder where that idea came from?)
- Over a mirror
- On a cupboard door (think a smaller grapevine)
- On your entry door
- Above your bed
