Succulent Ring Tutorial
Happy Monday Gnomies!
I hope you had a great weekend. Last week I shared a flower crown tutorial with you. I’ve been enjoying playing with flowers and plants in the garden and incorporating them into fun flower crowns and jewelry.
I started a new line of dried flower necklaces in my Crafty Little Gnome Jewelry Shop that you might like to check out. They are made with dried flowers called Statice, and I put them into a tiny bottle with a cork. I have six different colors available and you can include a custom message on a scroll if you like.
Today I am going to show you how to make a fun ring out of succulents. Succulents have been hugely popular for years now. They look pretty and are almost impossible to kill. A great combination for a plant! The succulent rings I am going to show you how to make are super rad because after you wear them, you can plant them in a pot and they will grow! How fun is that?
- Ring Base
- Floral Glue
Start by taking your succulents and gently pulling them apart so they are small enough to fit on the ring base. Plan out how you would like to arrange them.
Take a small amount of floral glue and and dab the base of the succulent into it, then place the succulent onto the ring base and hold it in place for about 30 seconds while the glue sets.
It’s that easy!
If you want to plant the succulents later peel them off the ring base and simply stick them in a small pot of dirt. With regular watering and some sunshine they will continue to grow.
Here’a another shot of the rings. You can see the Strawflower rings as well. If you missed it check out the Strawflower ring tutorial here
What do you think of my succulent rings? Where would you wear one of these beauties?
