We adore succulents so much that we decided to show them the love with a Succulent Heart Wreath! We added rich red roses to bring out the burgundies and reds in the succulent leaves. And we added clusters of green moss as a finishing touch. So pretty! And such a great way to decorate for Valentine’s Day––and well into Spring!
How To Make A Succulent Heart Wreath
14″ heart-shaped grapevine wreath
3 red silk roses, 2″ to 3″
3 red silk rosebuds, 1″
3 large round green artificial succulents, 4″ to 5″*
3 medium round burgundy and green artificial succulents, 2″ to 3″
8 medium round green and burgundy artificial succulents, 2.5″
3 small burgundy succulent bunches
3 small green succulent bunches
1 bag light green moss
glue gun & glue sticks
*The last time we made a faux succulent wreath, a few people asked us what the succulents were. Well, for those who love succulents enough to know their names, we used echeveria, jade, and draping sedum!
1. Start by hot gluing the 3 large succulents to the grapevine wreath, one in the upper right of the heart, one in the lower right, and one in the middle of the left-hand side. Snip the roses off their stems. Hot glue the roses to the wreath in the area between the large succulents. This is a great way to approach wreath making. Glue the big pieces in first, then the medium sized, and finally the smallest. Once you get the big items arranged and glued down, it’s easy to see where to place the next pieces.
2. Hot glue the medium succulents and rosebuds in the areas between the large succulents and roses.
3. Snip the succulent stems apart with the wire cutters.
4. Fill in the rest of the wreath by tucking and hot gluing the smaller succulents in the spaces between the large and medium succulents and the roses. Be sure to cover the inside and outside edges of the heart wreath form as you go.
5. Tuck and hot glue clumps of moss into the gaps between the succulents and roses until no grapevine shows.
6. To make a hanger for the wreath, cut a 6” piece of wire, feed it through the back of the grapevine wreath, twist the wire together and form a loop. Secure by twisting the ends of the wire together around the base of the loop.
We think this Succulent Heart Wreath is a real stunner! And once you gather the materials, it’s a quick snip and glue project. The trick is to keep filling in the spaces with smaller and smaller pieces to make the wreath look rich and full! Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? Tell us what you like to do! We always love hearing from you!
