Steps

1.) Pick out your best faux succulents

To get started making the wreath, pick out your best faux succulents. We bought some of our faux succulents at the dollar store. What a find! Ours came in little pots, so we plucked them out and trimmed the stems with wire cutters. To attach your succulents to your grapevine wreath, squeeze hot glue onto the stem and back of each succulent.

2.) Glue the succulents onto the wreath

While the glue is still hot, slide the stem of the succulent into the grapevine wreath and press the succulent into place. We like to start with the largest succulents first and arrange them evenly around the wreath.

3.) Add the shells

Once you have the succulents in place, you can add the shells in the spaces in between. To attach the shells, place the glue on the flat parts of the shells that will make good contact with the grapevine wreath.

4.) Place shells between the succulents

Add one or two shells between each succulent. We like to turn the shells in different directions to add movement to the wreath.

5.) Cover the grapevine with small pieces of succulents

Now that all the large succulents and shells are arranged on the wreath, you may have areas of the grapevine wreath showing through. Cover these with small pieces of succulents. We like to trim succulents down for this purpose. Hot glue them into place.

6.) Hot glue small batches of Spanish moss

To finish the wreath, hot glue small clumps of Spanish moss to the inside and outside edges of the wreath. We use a craft stick to press the glue into place so the hot glue doesn’t burn our fingers. When the whole wreath is finished, you can trim any stray sticky-outy pieces of moss with scissors.
