Did you know that Dollar Tree sells faux succulents? I made a wreath with them in the past that was gorgeous and really well received. So, I decided to use them again and make this succulent ball. I absolutely love how inexpensive and realistic looking they are!
Honestly, I don’t think you could find more realistic looking succulents at a lower price!
I grabbed 2 metal hanging baskets, 2 coco fiber liners, 2 bags of floral moss and 4 willow wreaths from my local Dollar Tree for this project. I ordered the case of succulents online and picked them up in store while I was gathering the rest of my supplies. I highly recommend you do the same. I also used wire cutters, floral wire, hot glue/gun and zip ties for this DIY.
The first three wreaths I just wrapped vertically around the ball in various directions with the cut ends going into the bottom of the ball. Then, I stuck the pieces of the fourth wreath horizontally at random. I used the pieces placed first to hold them into place. Geez, I hope that makes sense! Tough to explain!
I really like this… Nice job!
This is my favorite one too! I love how it’s a hidden project within. You are brilliant!
