Home » A Rustic Succulent Wreath – Curb Appeal Blog Hop 2016

A simple succulent wreath, made from readily-available materials, will bring life and style to your outdoor spaces!

 

DIY Outdoor Succulent Wreath

I created this wreath as part of a recent Curb Appeal Blog Hop I took part in, where I was desperately in need of that special something to hang outside on my front porch. A sizeable succulent wreath is a mainstay in the DIY world these days, with both hoop wreaths and succulents being everywhere you look! I combined the two elements to come up with this gorgeous outdoor succulent hoop – let me show you how I made it!

WHAT TO DO:

PAINT IT

Since I already had out the spray paint, I decided to make my ring using a hula hoop and metallic paint in charcoal gray, brown and copper. I used the copper to lighting spray areas to look similar to rust spots.

 

I was lucky enough to find a hula hoop with a flat edge – Walmart, 2.99 – and although the kids said it wasn’t perfect for hula hooping, it was perfect for me!

ADD SUCCULENT STEMS

I picked up some succulent picks and greenery stems at Joann’s – tip: buy your succulent picks at Target in a ready-made arrangement, remove the picks and keep the container. It will cost you less to do this than to buy individual succulent stems!

Starting in the middle, I attached the largest, single succulents of the bunch using floral wire. I wrapped the wire around the stem then around the hoop.

I continued working outward up to the sides, adding succulents and other greenery, keeping it balanced on both sides, using floral wire and hot glue where necessary to secure the succulents.

 

ADD A BOW

When I was happy with the placement, I added a burlap bow to the top.

I’m delighted with how it turned out and love how it fills the space while still keeping it simple. It’s entirely on trend for less than $20 – how can you beat that?!
