Summer Striped Succulent Wreath. Thank you all for the understanding, supportive love I felt last week when I posted my story. I was so nervous about sharing real life and what I discovered is that such a weight is lifted by being authentic and honest. Letting go of the 1905 Cottage was very hard but I feel so much lighter and happier since we moved. We are still unpacking and getting settled in our new home, but of course one of the first things I had to do was make my doorway welcoming with a new wreath. And I have a thing for succulents lately, so I thought a succulent wreath would be pretty for summer.
Our new home has a wonderful big front porch and I can’t wait to figure out how to decorate it. The door is black right now and I really want to paint it. But I am not sure what color. What do you think??
The 1905 Cottage was all grey and white. And looking back on that period in my life that reflected my mood. But I really want this house to be bright and colorful. I think colorful is really my personality. And the new owners of the cottage wanted to buy a lot of the furniture, so I am now able to change things up completely which is really fun! I am excited to share all of the colorful projects I am working on soon.
Here is how to make this Summer Striped Succulent Wreath:
Ribbon – I think my wreath form is 16 inches in diameter and I needed two spools of ribbon and they barely fit.
Succulents. You can find some really realistic succulents around. Mine are from Hobby Lobby. They have a great selection.
Hello – you can add a little word to your wreath if you want
Glue gun and sticks
Ribbon to hang the wreath
- Wrap the wreath form with ribbon, making sure to overlap the edges so you can’t see any of the styrofoam
- Arrange the succulents on the wreath. Once you are pleased with the arrangement, glue gun the crap out of them so they will stay lol
- Wrap some ribbon around the wreath at the top and add the word if you have one.
- Hang it up and enjoy your pretty front door!
There you go! You could actually hang this wreath up all year round – it isn’t really just for Summer. And it would also be cute inside as well.
Let me know what color you think I should paint my front door, ok? I am also planning on painting the porch lights the same color – whatever we decide.
Here are a few other wreaths I have made over the years. I love making wreaths – it’s therapeutic. LOL
Have a Beautiful Day!
