Easy & Affordable Everyday Succulent Home Decor Ideas

Never in my entire adult life would I believe you if you told me I would become a plant mom. Recently, my eye has been drawn to all things green. Moss, cacti, and of course, succulents. After doing a bit of research, succulents will work great with my farmhouse theme I have established in my home. So, in today’s blogpost, I am sharing my top succulent-themed decor projects that will not break the bank! Note: all projects require real or faux succulents

Succulent Wreath

Products:

succulent wreath

Step 1:

Take styrofoam wreath and adhere moss to entire wreath

Note: This can be done by using hot glue or spray adhesive…spray adhesive is faster; hot glue’s hold is stronger.

Step 2:

Position and adhere succulents on the lower half of the wreath in a “smile” like manner using hot glue.

Note: You may have to snip stems off of succulents for a better hold

Step 3:

Find a place to display your piece and admire your work

Succulent Planter

Products:

Step 1:

Cover planter with at least two coats of white (or desidred color) chalk paint.

Step 2:

Add a strip of twine to the top and bottom of the planter.

Step 3:

Cut styrofoam blocks to fit inside planter.

Step 4:

Begin placing succulents inside styrofoam. 

Note: if succulents have stems, use them to get a more secure hold inside of the styrofoam

Optional:

Use moss or pebbles to fill in exposed styrofoam that succulents do not cover.

Faux Succulent Wall Art

Step 1:

Place two coats of paint on the wood box.

Step 2:

Place washi tape just below the top of the top of the box and the bottom of the box.

Step 3:

Place styrofoam in the inside of the box.

Note: You may have to cut the styrofoam down into smaller blocks to fit inside the box. Take your time and make it neat.

Step 4:

Place down a layer of moss on top of styrofoam

Step 5:

Begin adding succulents to the styrofoam.

Note: If succulents have stems, use them to secure in place

Optional:

Fill in any gaps with moss

I hope these succulent-themed DIYs give you the inspiration you need to make your own home decor for the fraction of the cost compared to in stores!
