Looking for a new wreath for your door? Don't want to fuss with dried flowers or grapevine? This living succulent wreath is modern and earthy. Plus, this organic moss-and-succulent wreath dials down the yellow door's boldness. Adjacent on the color wheel, green and yellow are pleasing to the eye but with a bold punch. Choose succulents of varying colors and sizes to add interest and texture to the wreath. We included ivy, ferns, and reindeer moss to break up the weight that the succulents add. If you're looking for a seasonal touch, try adding a bow. Using wired ribbon, create a bow and then attach it to your wreath with a wired wood pick. You can easily change it out when you want a new look.
Begin with a living wreath form. Consider the size of your door and how the wreath will fall once hung when picking a size. We used a medium size with a 20-inch-diameter wire ring. First, line the form with damp sheet moss or sphagnum moss cloth. Then fill with potting soil.
On the front of the wreath, make small holes with scissors or needle-nose pliers. Insert clippings of your choosing and use U-shaped florist pins to secure the plants in place. We used succulents, ivy, ferns, and reindeer moss for bold green colors and textures.
