My DIY Succulent Moss Wreath is a statement maker for SURE!

I start with a grapevine wreath base.

You can make this wreath any size to fit the scale of your mantel and/or doors.

You can also display it on a flat surface and place a candle in the center.

Grapevine wreath (mine is 20 inches diameter)

floral paddle wire

wire snips

florist pins

skewer sticks

a variety of succulents


glue gun

glue sticks


  1. Using floral paddle wire, wrap the moss completely around the grapevine moss.
  2. Cut the wire using wire snips.
  3. Secure the ends of the wire around the back of the grapevine wreath so that it does not come undone.
  4. Using a skewer stick, poke a hole into the moss large enough to place the stem of the succulent into the hole.
  5. Remove the succulent from the grower pot and place hot glue on the stem.
  6. Place the succulent into the skewered hole.
  7. If the succulent still wants to wobble, you can secure it with a florist pin.
  8. I placed a variety of succulents around the entire wreath, but it also look good with just one section of the wreath filled with succulents.
  9. After you have styled the succulents as you wish, then water the wreath thoroughly to soak the moss.
  10. Then hang or place the wreath where you would like.


  1. The hot glue does not hurt or kill the succulent in any way. If you own a commercial glue gun, I would recommend turning it down to a lower setting. Other than that, the succulents will continue to grow and put out new roots through the glue.
  2. I water my wreath deeply once a week while it is hanging on the mantel.
