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 (ha ha) and now I'm in love! 🙂 They look great in just about any container or planter and are fairly 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 all great ways to display succulent plants. I literally see them everywhere. While at the plant nursery shopping for our annuals this year, I saw an adorable succulent garden nestled in a vintage birdcage. It was more than $50! Yikes! Although adorable, it was just too expensive to put in my cart and take home. It inspired me though.
Come learn how I made mine for $20 using Dollar Store succulents!
If you know me, you know I don't have a green thumb, I've killed very hearty and "easy to take care of" plants, so I decided to use faux succulents for my DIY. I think they look wonderful and authentic - no one would ever know they're not real. Bonus! No maintenance! Remember, I'm not good with plants.
How to Make a Succulent DIY
The birdcage used in this tutorial was found 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 besides one of the larger succulents, which was also found at Jo-Anns.
Take the floral foam and place it in 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. I tried to pick ones that looked good together no matter which way I placed them. 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!
