How to create a Succulent Bouquet:
Floral Supplies Needed…
- A variety of succulents
How To Prepare Your Flowers:
- Take a piece of wire and insert into the stem of the succulent, pulling it through the other end and twisting it down.
Create Your Succulent Bouquet
- You have two options. You can individually wrap floral wax tape around the wire of each individual flower until it is completely covered, starting at the base of the succulent and working your way down.
Or, if you are pressed for time, you can bunch all of your succulents and wire stems together, arranging them thoughtfully, and twisting “stems” together. Carefully cut all of the wire so that it is even.
- Begin the process of binding the stems together. Stretch the floral tape so the wax becomes adhesive.
- Starting at the neck of the succulent bouquet, tightly wrap the floral tape from the top to the bottom.
- Dot one end of the burlap with hot glue, and loosely wrap around the stem from the top to the bottom. Once you have reached the bottom, wrap the burlap back up to the top. Trim and secure the end of the burlap.
