DIY Succulent Arrangement

| May 15, 2017

Succulents are still such a popular plant in home decor, but if you don't have a green thumb, or just don't want to worry about keeping a real succulent arrangement alive and happy, here’s a project for you that doesn’t take any watering or monitoring after it’s finished!

What You’ll Need:
  • Small tray of any size. We used a square metal tin tray, but you can even use the bottom of a clay pot if you’d like!
  • Floral foam
  • Spanish moss
  • Faux Succulent pieces. Buy individually, or in a value pack available at Carolina Pottery!
  • River rocks
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Refills
  1. Cut a piece of floral foam into a thin section that fills most of the tray you will be filling with succulents.
  2. Cover the tray with Spanish moss, securing with hot glue as needed.
  3. Take Succulent picks and stick them where you would like, securing with glue before inserting into the floral foam, or place without using glue if you would like to rearrange your centerpiece later.
  4. Make sure the middle has the most height and work down from there.
  5. Place river rocks in gaps and over areas where some of the foam might still be visible underneath the Spanish moss. Again, you may use hot glue to secure the rocks if you would like.
  6. Place on a coffee table, dining room table, or even a side table in the living room to enjoy your new custom succulent arrangement!
