Hey, so this is a first!
The first time, that I’ve made a wreath I mean (all of the wreath tutorials on this blog so far have been by other contributors). In truth, I’m not entirely sure what’s come over . . why I suddenly felt like I could and needed to make a wreath. Maybe its the fancy new glue gun that has come into my possession or maybe it’s simply the change in season?
Nothing says Autumn quite like a wreath hanging on your door, right?
Granted, I had envisioned using REAL succulents for this wreath- but turns out faux ones are just as good. And I may have cheated a little by using an embroidery hoop to create the base for this wreath. I wanted to keep it simple.
Sometimes simple is good,
As for the tutorial ? Well it really is self explanatory once you see the pictures.
MATERIALS NEEDED TO MAKE A SUCCULENT WREATH:
HOW TO MAKE A SUCCULENT WREATH:
1 . Separate the embroidery ring. You will need to use the outer ring to make this wreath
2. Clip the ends of the plastic succulent flowers and leaves
3. Using your glue gun, start sticking the succulent leaves to one – making sure to follow the curve of the ring.
Position them together so that there are no visible gaps.
4. Next glue the leaves in the reverse direction , leaving a small gap for the larger succulent flowers.
5 . Glue the biggest succulent flower in the gap you have created.
And then the smaller green succulent flower adjacent to it
6. Wrap the jute string around the top of the wreath to create a loop to hang the wreath.
And that my friend, is how you make a simple Succulent wreath .
Hang it on your door using self adhesive hook!
