Succulents are so popular right now. They are relatively easy to care for and can be planted in lots of different shallow containers and terrariums that normal houseplants cannot. They are so popular that you can even find the faux versions at stores like Dollar Tree. Today, I am going to show you how you can create your own faux succulent wreath using supplies from the dollar store. It makes a beautiful home decor piece that would be perfect for gifting for Mother’s Day. And since the succulents are not real, you will be able to create it ahead of time in just minutes.

To start, add a little bit of hot glue to the back of the wreath to secure the burlap onto the wreath.
Wrap the burlap around the wreath, pulling it tight as you go. For my wreath form, the 9 feet of burlap was the perfect amount to wrap the entire 10″ wreath. I tried to overlap the burlap on the middle of the piece before it, as you can see in the photo.
Note: If your wreath form is larger or smaller, or you wrap your burlap closer together you may need more or less burlap than I used for my project.
About halfway through wrapping the wreath, I secured the burlap using a little more hot glue, so that the wrapping would stay tight. When you reach the end of your wreath, fold the end over and use hot glue to secure the loose end of burlap to the wreath.
Trim the long stems off all your succulents using scissors or wire cutters.
Use hot glue to secure your succulents to the burlap wreath in whatever design you choose. I always try to work in uneven numbers when creating wreaths, as it is more pleasing to the eye. My wreath has seven succulent plants on it.
I often have a hard time knowing what to give as gifts on Mother’s Day since our moms have pretty much everything they need. Beautiful, inexpensive home decor is the perfect gift idea that will never fade.
