Hang and Display Your DIY Succulent Wreath

6) Allow your succulent wreath to dry and take root for a few weeks.

7) Once the succulents have established roots, you can hang and display your stunning creation. I’m still too chicken to hang mine, so I just display it on a table or kitchen island. When it isn’t on display, I have my DIY succulent wreath under a covered porch with bright, indirect light so the cuttings don’t stretch.

Caring for Your DIY Succulent Wreath

To care for your succulent wreath, mist it lightly with water every few days (literally one of the only times it is acceptable to mist), making sure not to overwater. Once the cuttings have established a robust root system, you can water it with a sprayer hose attachment also. Another way to water your DIY succulent wreath is to soak it in a shallow tray of water when the moss is dry. Avoid placing the wreath in direct sunlight or in areas with extreme temperature fluctuations.
