I love, love, love fall! The changing colours, the cooler weather, the pumpkin spice lattes… and the first thing that I like to do to celebrate the changing of the season is hang a new wreath on my front door. This Succulent Wreath is perfect for fall and provides a fresh, classic pop of colour to my entryway. It’s also simple to make and create your own. Let me show you how…
How adorable is the little woodland owl peeking through the foliage?!
I love using a variety of succulent shapes and textures while pairing them with muted pops of colour.
The hints of yellow, orange and gold are perfect for fall.
14″ grapevine wreath
Selection of succulents
Pumpkin, leaf and owl accents
Hot glue gun and glue
Wire or string for hanging
All of the supplies can be purchased at Michaels. Be sure to have a variety of succulent shapes, sizes, colours and textures on hand. Lay out your design by placing the succulents where you want them on the wreath. Cut off any long stems as needed. You may need wire cutters or heavy duty scissors for this. Once you have the plants where you want them, use the hot glue gun to stick them into place. Add fall accent pieces where desired and glue them into place as well. Tie a string for hanging to the top of the wreath.
Pro Tip: keep your eyes open for wreath making supplies at your local thrift and dollar stores. Buying new craft supplies can get expensive but reusing old or inexpensive ones is a brilliant way to get a lot of bang for your buck. I found this wreath form at the thrift store and many of the succulents at the dollar store.
