Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
Last month I made a Seashell Succulent Arrangement for the Make it Fun Blog. It was such a fun and easy project and I couldn’t wait to share it with my followers! Last week I also made a Succulent Farmhouse Style Wreath for the house. I can’t stop using succulents right now, their the best!!
Ok on to the post!
I absolutely love anything coastal. It’s my thing and I’m seriously obsessed. I also love succulents! So, you can just imagine how I feel about this Succulent Arrangement. And the best part is, it only takes 10 minutes to make! You could make one for your mom for Mother’s day in a snap or even a gift for a friend!
Supplies needed to make this project:
- FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Balls: 3″ (or sized to fit your container)
- FloraCraft® Design It:® Succulents or Air Plants (or a combination of both)
- FloraCraft® Design It:® Floral Pins
- Wire Cutters
- Serrated Knife
- Low-Temp Glue Gun
- Seashell Container (real or fake)
Step 1 – Add Your Foam Ball
Start off by cutting your foam ball in half with the serrated knife. Use one half the fill the inside of the shell (I had to cut that in half as well). Glue the other half with the flat part facing out into the shell.
Tip: Gluing the foam inside the shell helps keep the arrangement in place. I made a tester and the whole arrangement kept falling out. It’s not going anywhere now!
Make sure you use a low-temp glue gun for this project.
Step 2 – Add Succulents
Now let’s add our beautiful succulents to the arrangement! Simply trim the stems and insert the picks into the foam. I like the little bit of height, so I placed my longest stems in the back and my shorter succulents in the front.
Step 3 – Moss Time!
Fill in around the arrangement with moss to cover the foam. Easily attach the moss using floral pins. The pins make it less messy then having to use glue.
See how simple this project is, I LOVE it! And I think it actually takes less than 10 minutes. That’s my kinda craft!
I also used one of the air plants and added it to the inside of a sea urchin shell the same way. Looks like a mini jellyfish.
This is a quick and simple home decor piece, but if you’re having a coastal-themed wedding or shower then these would be perfect for your table settings. And if you have to make multiples, they go together in no time!
