You all know how much I love my little plant babies. It seems like the world is finally catching up, I’ve seen succulents for sale in the supermarket and some beautiful ways to wear them, and even a little plant pot for your bike! You too can wear your plant babies and take them out and about. I’m hoping wearing this DIY living succulent ring will stop me buying new ones when I’m picking up bread.
DIY Living Succulent Ring Supplies:
- Floral adhesive
- Reindeer Moss
- Succulent or cacti, ones that are rosette style are best.
- Ring blank with a dish.
Let’s do this
To start, remove as much of the soil from the bottom of your succulent and give the roots a bit of a trim.
Take the glue, and pop a dollop on the ring blank. Then, take a small piece of moss and glue it down. This is to help protect the roots of your plant. Stick the ring into a dish or shot glass with some rice or cous-cous in to help it stand up. Let the glue dry for about 10 minutes.
Wrap the roots around your plant, and put glue around the edge of your ring blank. Leave a gap in the centre so the roots can get some water. Push the plant on top, making sure that it’s centred. Press on the top for a short moment, and stick it back into the shot glass. Let dry for another 10 minutes.
Next, put some glue around the edge of the succulent. Let it go tacky for a minute or two and stick some more moss all around the edge. Don’t worry if it sticks out, just make sure the glue is all covered. Stick it back in your pot and let it dry completely.
Take some sharp scissors and trim the excess moss off. Then wear your amazing DIY living succulent ring for all to see.
I’m going to make a bunch more of these pretties, maybe I do need to buy some more succulents after all.
Until next time lovelies,
