Faux Succulent Wreath (A Dollar Store DIY)
Learn how to make a beautiful faux succulent wreath to welcome spring with a few simple items from the Dollar Store and a hot glue gun!
March 5th, 2017 will be written in golden ink to the Navage family history book, for it is the day my babes finally took down the Christmas wreath that had been hanging over our front door since December 2015! I don’t know if The Guinness Book of Records has a “procrastination” category, but if they do, my babes’ 437 days should certainly qualify! Lol. Since I had nowhere to hang a wreath until Sunday afternoon, it’s no wonder why last Saturday I was busy DIYing a wreath stand to hang my new faux succulent wreath 😉
Apart from the wreath stand, I was also busy shopping at Dollar Store this weekend, and that is when I decided to make a faux succulent wreath for this spring. They had some really cool succulents at the Dollar Store – which was perfect, because just recently, I saw a faux succulent wreath in Pottery Barn’s catalog and was thinking about making one sometime in the future. Oh well…it was meant to be mine sooner rather than later! Hahahaha 🙂
Faux Succulent Wreath Tutorial
I have to say, it was one of the easiest wreaths I’ve made. You only need some Dollar Store faux succulents, a grapevine wreath, some reindeer moss and a hot glue gun to make this wreath.
I started off pulling the succulents out of their pots and placing them on the wreath to decide on the layout / arrangement.
Once I liked the layout, I heated my hot glue gun and started hot gluing the succulents on to the grapevine wreath according to that layout.
When I hot glued all the succulents into their places, I started hot gluing the reindeer moss. To do so, I grabbed some moss and put some hot glue on the moss.
Then I placed the moss wherever there was a big gap on the grapevine wreath. Something to note here: I didn’t try to fill all the gaps so the grapevine would peek through here and there. I think that randomness gave the whole thing a better and more realistic look.
And that was that! What do you think? Wasn’t it the easiest wreath ever?…
…and it looks pretty good too!
Some close-up shots for you to see the Dollar Store succulents.
For a dollar each, they look really great!
Before I forget…how do you like my new DIY wreath hanger? It cost me 5 dollars to make that. Not kidding! You just gotta love Hobby Lobby’s discount aisle 😀
Can you guess what I repurposed to make that wreath hanger? No? You’d better go and check that out then! 😉
We love it when you share our posts on Facebook and Pinterest!
faux plants my kind lol, this looks fabulous and so easy to make love it xx
Hahahaha 😀 Me too Chris! I love faux plants for indoors. If it weren’t for Greg, all our indoor plants would be dead by now. But I am very good with outdoor plants, because all they need is planting. lol Nature takes care of the rest. 😉
Lovely and so easy even an idiot errr I mean, I can make this!??❤
Thank you so much, Patty! Here is a hint for you: if I am posting a wreath tutorial you can bet your bottom dollar it would be so easy, because wreath-making and I aren’t cozy-cozy buddy-buddy yet. lol. Hopefully in time we’ll get there 😉
I really wish the Dollar Store existed where I live! It seems like such a crafting goldmine for so many people.
Oh I love Dollar Store, Natasha! Obviously they don’t sell the best quality stuff, but for a dollar sometimes you can find awesome things. I am sure they will start opening more and more stores all around. And when they do open a store in your area keep in mind: going there a month before major holidays or celebration days is the best time to find really cool things 😉
There are no “dollar stores” of any brand in Hawaii, but if one ever arrives I’m sure it will be incredibly popular! Thank you for the tips. =)
I lve it! I even like it without the moss. Either way, it looks great!
Thank you so much, Giselle! Yes indeed it looked pretty good even without the moss! I can’t wait to see what else Dollar Store will have for summer. They gave a good start to this year with their spring items 😀
Gorgeous Handan, thanks for sharing on craft schooling sunday! this past summer on a trip to the USA the one thing I did pick up at the dollar tree was some faux succulents as just couldn’t resist!
Thank you so much, Sara! I agree, their succulents look so cute and pretty realistic…especially when displayed next to a natural element such as moss. 🙂
Super cute! I love that the dollar store has these available now, and they look great too! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Creative Circle Link Party!
Thank you so much, Iris! 🙂
It looks awesome!
Thank you!! 🙂
Wow – that is so pretty – and they look real! I’m a little behind but I wanted to stop by and thank you for sharing on last weeks Pleasures of the NW’s DIY party
Thank you so much, Helen!
So pretty! Thanks for sharing with us at Funtastic Friday 🙂
Thank you so much, Debra! 🙂
Oh, I love this! I loves succulents, but seriously can’t keep any indoor plants alive. This is such a creative way to use them. I may need to make a trip to the craft store tomorrow. 🙂
Thank youm Amy! I am really bad with indoor plants too, that is why I am using faux succulents 😉
You’re right Handan! It really was easy to make and it looks fantastic. No one would know that half of it came from the dollar store. Don’t you just love it when projects don’t cost an arm and a leg? I also really like the hanger!
Oh I do, Mary…I love budget friendly projects! 🙂
Oh why don’t we have a dollar store in South Africa? Your wreath is beautiful Handan, and with the faux succulents it’s definitely going to look amazing the whole year.
I used some of these for a tablescape but this idea is much better and I will definitely try it.
Thank you so much, Sandra! 🙂
Oh my goodness that is just gorgeous! Hmmm I have all the stuff in my workshop to make my own 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration! Pinned and shared.
