Note: You have to wait 6-8 weeks for the succulent roots to grow out before you hang the wreath. However, if you would like to hang your heart succulent wreath immediately, you will need to use wire to secure succulents in place.

Total Time: A couple days

Supplies:

  • iron heart chicken wire wall decor
  • chicken wire
  • coco liner
  • pliers
  • sphagnum moss
  • soil
  • plant training wire
  • black plastic flat tray
  • black plastic sheeting
  • assorted succulents
  • chopstick

Steps:

  1. At your local arts and crafts store you can find various size/shapes of chicken wire decor items. I purchased this heart shaped one.
  2. Heart Succulent Wreath - heart shaped chicken wire wall decor item
     
  3. Flip heart decor over to the backside. You want to cut coco liner to size and cut chicken wire slightly larger.
