DIY Wedding Succulent Centerpieces

How To Make A Super Easy DIY MIni Succulent Centerpiece

Your wedding flowers are the highlight of your wedding décor, from the florae that create a picturesque ceremony setting to the arrangements that adorn your reception tables. Most unfortunately, however, these gorgeous blooms have a fleeting lifetime: They’ll only keep for just a few precious days post-wedding. But your succulents, however, can find new life. So, don’t despair over your soon-to-wilt wedding flowers—create a living keepsake instead by making a meaningful—and pretty—habitat for your wedding plants. This tutorial explains how to turn those succulents into living memories that double as fun home accents. With minimum upkeep, you can continue to enjoy them for years to come! A big thank you to event company, Swoon California and Willhouse Photography for creating this fun DIY project and sharing it!

Directions:

1. Create a base layer of dirt in your vessel, spooning in a layer 1/4 inch and patting it

down so it’s lightly packed.

2. Layer on gravel, rocks, or sea glass—about 1/3 of an inch. (Put in more than you think

you need, as the layers will look thinner from the outside.)

3. Layer on bark, patting it down to minimize gaps.How To Make A Super Easy DIY MIni Succulent Centerpiece

4. Wet your hand, then grab a handful of potting soil to place on top the bark (the water

keeps the soil together). Carve out a small hole, about 1/2 inch deep to plant your

succulent.

5. Plant your succulent, adding more wet soil as needed until the base is fully covered.
