Succulent wreath

Did you guys know that I work over on the Make it Fun blog! You can see all my posts ! This wreath was orginally over there –but here you go in case you missed it!

Today I have a fun Spring  wreath for you! I totally love Make it Fun succulents…they are gorgeous and look so life like (and added bonus–I can’t kill them! Seriously aren’t succulents supposed to be hard to kill? ) So I knew I wanted to create a cute wreath using them!

 

Here is what you need to make a wreath:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Wreath (whatever size you choose)
  • FloraCraft Smooth Finish®  Paintable Coating
  • FloraCraft® Design It:® Air Plant Picks
  • Acrylic Paint –
  • Paintbrush
  • Fine-Grit Sandpaper
  • Leather or ribbon

I’ve seen lots of fun wreaths wrapped in ribbon or fabric…but I wanted to paint this and keep it simple! To be able to paint it I use Smooth finish

You just add it and it seals the porous nature of the foam. Here is a before and after for you! (I did two coats –sanding in between!)

Then paint! I chose a pretty blush pink! 

After the wreath was ready it was time to grab the succulent picks! 

I actually grabbed a few leaves from some fake flowers and just started building out from there.

I didn’t even glue them in-just pushed the picks into the foam. 

I added some green moss in between as fillers (plus the fun bright green adds a pop) I also added in a couple felt succulents that I had laying around!

Added a little leather strap to hang for the finishing touches! 

I pretty much love love love it!

Blush pink-succulents-leather! All my favorite things!
