DIY Faux Succulent Embroidery Hoop Wreath

Welcome to Our Crafty Mom! Do you find that once the Holidays are over and you get your house back in order, that you are looking to change things up? When January rolls around I always find myself looking at what I have on the walls or even on the tables and craving something new or  switched out from another room. I think that is one of the many reasons why I started crafting in the first place. It is much more budget friendly to create new things than to buy them! I love the look of succulents and was thrilled when I saw beautiful faux succulents at Afloral.

I received product from in exchange for this post, however all opinions are 100% mine. This post contains affiliate links.

These succulents are so realistic looking and while I know succulents are easy to care for, faux is even easier! You get the great look without the worry! Rustic Farmhouse Style really appeals to me and I knew immediately I would use these succulents in a natural wreath. Originally I was going to use a grapevine wreath but when I hit my craft closet, this embroidery hoop jumped out at me. Here is what I used:


Faux Succulents

Embroidery Hoop

Styrofoam Square


Ribbon or Twine

Hot Glue

Wire Cutters

You can stain the hoop if you want, but I kept it natural (this picture shows a painted blue one-I changed my mind ?) Take a small piece of foam and press the hoop into it adding a little hot glue to secure it.

Cut apart the succulents and trim them so they are a good length for the foam. Use hot glue to secure. You can space them out however you like. They look  good on the side as well, but I decided to go with them centered. You can add silks as well, but I chose to stick with a greenery look. Then just hot glue moss to cover up the foam and hang with ribbon of your choice. I used twine to keep with the rustic look.

This wreath is so versatile. In the first picture I hung it on a large Chalkboard. But, I really love how it looks on a stained piece of scrap wood on my Mantel. I have a feeling this piece is going to be moved around a lot, which is perfect for someone like me who gets bored easily! This is my first time working with Afloral and I am so impressed with the quality of the products. I also received some gorgeous silk flowers which I will be sharing in another post.  They are so realistic looking that the only way you know they aren’t real is if you touch them. I have been crafting for 30 years and love to use silks. These are some of the best I’ve seen. My niece is getting married next year and is looking into the Wedding Flowers at Afloral . They not only carry silk flowers, but everything you need to plan a Wedding including lighting, decorations and home decor. But Afloral is not just for Weddings, I fell in love with the rustic line of birch vases shown here:
