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 –
- 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!
