Succulent Wreath with Terracotta Pots

Succulents are in season and this succulent wreath is just the DIY project to make for your front door. We love spring wreaths with flowers like this Flower Wreath with Daffodils.

This succulent wreath with terracotta pots is unique and fun!

For this front door wreath, we picked up the pots at Dollar Tree and grabbed our grapevine wreath on Amazon.

As for the succulents, you can use faux succulents from the Dollar store, or use real ones. That depends on how green your thumb is.

If you think this project is cool, my clay pot racecar garden art will surely impress!

These are the instructions for how to make a succulent wreath.

Dry Fit The Terracotta Pots

Dry fit the terracotta pots by laying them onto the wreath where you’d like them to be. 

In this case, I’ve used 10 terracotta pots, spread out incrementally just like in this photo.

Glue The Pots To The Wreath

Using hot glue, adhere the clay pots to the wreath. I used large strips of glue so there was plenty – making sure it stuck well.

Succulent Wreath Decoration

Now it’s time to add your succulents and decoration. You can have some with succulents and some with moss. You can even have all succulents and use the moss in and around the wreath for even more decoration.

This is where your creativity comes in!

If you’re not feeling very creative, just do what I did here. I filled some pots with moss and some with succulents. 

For the moss, to make it look like it’s growing out of the pot, simply use hot glue on the inside and outside of the pot. Careful you don’t burn your fingers!

Don’t forget to glue your bird onto one of the pots, or onto the wreath.

Add Succulents

After you’re done placing moss in some of the pots, add the succulents to the remaining pots.

Make sure to add some moss around the fake succulents to make them look more interesting!
