DIY Terracotta Succulent Wreath

I’m somewhat crafty, with an affinity for DIY projects. I’ve always loved succulents and have been dying to make my own wreath with mini terracotta pots! This past weekend, I finally had the opportunity to do so when we were taking down some old shrubs outside our house. I’m definitely pleased with the results!

The best part about this project is that it’s super easy and inexpensive. You don’t need much more than terra cotta pots, glue, string, moss or floral wire, scissors and succulent plants from your local nursery or garden center. Oh, and a wreath of course.

Here are some step-by-step instructions on how to make your very own terracotta succulent wreath.

Homemade Terracotta Succulent Wreath

Supplies you’ll need:

  • 18 Inch Grapevine Wreath
  • 10-12 Small Terracotta Pots, Dollar Tree
  • 3 Faux Succulents, Dollar Tree
  • Reindeer Moss
  • Regular Moss
  • White Bird
  • Hot Glue Sticks

Terracotta pots are easy to come by, and they’re the perfect size for a succulent wreath. This project is really easy to put together – even if you’ve never made one before!

It’s time to bring out the plants, it’s Spring! There is nothing better than decorating your front door with flowers and plants. But if you are like me, you don’t have much of a green thumb or a lot of space for gardening. That doesn’t mean that you can’t plant anything at all though! With just a few supplies from your local craft store, you can make this cute mini-terracotta pot wreath that will be perfect for any springtime get together.

Start out by prepping your supplies. Lay out all of your pots you want on the wreath in a design that works best for you (I used 10 total), spacing them enough to allow one strip of hot glue per pot. Next using your hot glue gun, attach strips of hot glue to the terracotta pots and press each firmly onto the wreath form.

Once all of the pots are attached, decide which ones you want to have succulents or moss in them. To make the moss look like it’s coming out of the pot, use hot glue on one side and then place the moss inside of the planters.

Add the succulents to some of the pots and then fill around it with moss and add some glue to the side so the moss looks like it is coming out of the pots.

Decide where you would like to place the white bird, and hot glue it into place.

After the glue has dried, hang your wreath and enjoy!
