Beautiful Ways to Decorate with Succulents
Although I love greenery around the house, I wasn't always a fan of succulents. These little guys grew on me (haha), and now I'm in love! 🙂 They look great in just about any container or planter and are relatively low maintenance. There are just so many Beautiful Ways to Decorate with Succulents.
Fun Fact: Did you know nearly all cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti? Interesting.
Arrangements, topiaries, wreaths, and wall hangings are great ways to display succulent plants.
We literally see them everywhere. While at the plant nursery shopping for our annuals this year, we saw a lovely succulent garden nestled in a vintage birdcage. It was more than $50!
Although adorable, it was just too expensive to take home in my cart. It inspired us, though.
Come learn how to make one for $20 using Dollar Store succulents!
This DIY looks wonderful and authentic - no one would ever know they're not real. Bonus! No maintenance!
How to Make a Succulent DIY
We found the birdcage used in this tutorial at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store for 70% off, but you could use just about anything that fits your decor and budget. Vintage tins, tea cups, mercury glass vases, whatever you like!
All other materials came from the Dollar Store except one of the larger succulents, that was found at Jo-Ann's.
Take the floral foam and place it at the bottom of the birdcage, covering most of and surface. Cut and shape if necessary.
Use the moss to cover the floral foam. Spread it out, so none of the foam is showing.
Push your faux succulents through the moss into the floral foam. Vary the height and colors of succulents. We tried to pick ones that looked good together no matter which way they were placed. And tada, you're done!
We plan to enjoy the succulent birdcage outside in our outdoor entertaining area, but it looks good inside, too, so we'll see!
