Make A Living Wreath

A  living wreath that grows? Sounds like fun, this is how to make one.

You will need:

  • a wire wreath frame
  • sphagnum moss
  • fishing line
  • bobby pins
  • rooting hormone

  1. Get some succulent cuttings. ( If you haven’t got any ask friends and relatives.) Look for different colours.
  2. Spread cuttings out to dry for a few days, till a scab forms on the end.
  3. Wet the sphagnum moss for 5 minutes and then stuff tightly into wire wreath. Wrap with fishing wire, turn over and cover the wire with moss and again tie down.
  4. Use a pencil to make a hole in the moss, dip succulent in rooting hormone and poke into hole. Secure with bobby pin. Repeat till the whole wreath is covered making a pretty pattern.
  5. You can lay it flat or hang it up. Make sure it receives some sun and spritz it with water occasionally. Have fun and enjoy your wreath.
