I absolutely love having a wreath hanging on my front door. There is just something that is so welcoming about a splash of texture and colour greeting my guests. This year I worked smarter (not harder) and created a wreath that I could repurpose and use for all seasons. All it took was making one universally gorgeous succulent wreath and changing it up for each season.
Start by creating a somewhat neutral wreath. You can find all of the supplies that I used at Michaels or your local dollar store. I used a grapevine wreath form as the base and simply added faux succulents. Be sure to purchase succulents in a variety of shapes and sizes. Too big and the wreath may look unbalanced, too small and it may look busy. I like a variety of succulents in different shapes, sizes and colours.
How to create a basic succulent wreath:
- Begin by placing the larger plants on the wreath form and filling empty space with the smaller plants.
- Cut off any log stems that stick out and tuck the plants into the grapevine.
- Finally, when you’re happy with the placement, glue the succulents to the wreath using a hot glue gun.
- Attach a wire or rope hanger to the back of the wreath.
To repurpose this wreath for every season purchase faux flowers, leaves and embellishments specific to that time of year.
For fall: orange leaves, yellow berries, colourful gourds and an owl.
For spring: pink flowers, green leaves and peddle bike.
For winter: red berries, antlers and sparkly greenery.
For summer: simply leave the wreath unadorned. As the seasons change tuck the embellishments into the wreath. Use a dab of glue if you are worried about them slipping out. Change up the decor as the year goes by.
