step by step
NOTE: If you have a glue gun at home, I highly recommend that you use it for this craft! Hot glue will not harm your succulent clippings and is a much easier and faster glue to use than the cold craft glue.
Unpack all your materials
Arrange your clippings along the wreath form to attain a visual plan before beginning.
(Optional) If desired, use the floral wire to wrap your winter green clipping to the wreath form.
Glue along the wreath form where you wish to arrange your clippings.
Take small amount of preserved moss and tightly press it against the glued wreath form. Cut a piece of floral wire (about 6-7 inches) and wrap it around the moss to secure tightly.
To glue on succulents – simply apply a small amount of glue to the bottom of your clipping and then press firmly into the moss. After about 1-2 weeks your clippings will grow roots and root directly into the moss.
Finish with seasonal elements to accessorize your wreath, such as: small holiday berries, feathers, dried flowers, wild grass clippings, tiny pinecones, holiday baubles, etc.
Glue the three magnets to the back to complete your living wreath magnet OR… OPTIONAL: Use ribbon, twine or yarn to tie a bow on top and hang with your holiday decorations!
LIGHT: Provide bright and indirect light.
WATER: Wait 1-2 weeks after creation before giving any water (this gives the plants time to grow some roots). Then, mist lightly every 5-7 days and only when the piece feels totally dry.
MAINTENANCE: Once your succulents begin to outgrow their wreath home (typically in about 3 months) you can remove them by gently pulling them off the moss, and then replanting into any vessel of your choice (mugs, jars, vases, bowls, etc.). With the proper care, they will continue to grow!
