When autumn is in the air and everything outside is crisp and colorful, it signals the start of wreath season! While we adore vibrant fall wreaths crafted with live flower and succulent embellishments, it’s aways a little heartbreaking when they wilt away. Our solution? Infuse faux plants to get the look of those wreaths with a much longer lifespan, so you can enjoy them inside or outside your home year after year.
Follow these six simple steps to create your own fabulous fall wreath that pops with lively-looking faux succulents.
You will need:
- An assortment of faux succulents and faux airplants
- A glue gun and a few glue sticks
- A premade wreath
- Cutting pliers
Prepare faux plants, dismantle from surface if necessary. Be sure to trim down any long stems.
Start laying out the plants to design a nice visual before applying glue.
Once satisfied with your layout, you can begin glueing on your faux plants.
Hold down each plant after glueing so it adheres to your wreath. Be cautious of the hot glue.
Check for any empty spots and fill in with left over faux plants if necessary. We added in the faux airplants towards the end because they make great “fillers.”
Hang on your front door, entryway wall or display it on a shelf this autumn or year round!
