Hi Everyone! This is Melanie Artz from Artzy Creations again. Are you in love with succulents as much as I am? It seems like succulents are all the latest rage right now. I fell in love with succulents after having lived in California for many years. Succulents come in such a beautiful variety of colors and textures, but the best part for me was that they were very low maintenance. Now that I am living in Seattle, I can say that it’s really hard for me to keep my succulents alive, especially in the winter time. So, I decided to create a wreath using faux succulents. It can’t get any easier than that, right? I also wanted to create a look that would be perfect for the outdoors and was somewhat rustic. I used a recycled wine barrel ring also because I loved how worn it looks. Let’s get started and see just how easy it is to create this DIY Wine Barrel Ring Succulent Wreath.
Wine barrel rings come in different sizes between 22″ & 26″. Typically when you order wine barrel rings, you will have to order them in multiples, and you will probably end up with varying sizes and thicknesses.
- Wine Barrel Hoop
- Floral Wire
- Several Faux Succulents of Various Sizes
- Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue (Optional)
Step 1: Gather a variety of succulents that have various colors and textures.
Step 2: Taking the large wire cutters, trim the succulents so the stem is an 1″ to 1-1/2″ long.
Step 3: Taking a long piece of floral wire (at least 24″), wrap it around the stem of the succulent and then wrap it around the wine barrel ring.
Step 4: Start placing the succulents in the middle of the wreath and work your way out.
Step 5: At the end, go back and fill in places with the moss. You can also use wire or hot glue to attach the moss to the bottom of the ring and hide all of the wire.
In no time at all, you can create this beautiful outdoor decor piece for your patio area, entrance way, or even hang it on the outside of your home permanently. The faux succulents will last forever on this piece… no watering required. You’ve gotta love that.
Enjoy, and I think you will fall in love with this DIY Wine Barrel Ring Succulent Wreath. I know I have.
