How to Make a Succulent Wedding Bouquet
Succulents are more popular than ever in the gardening world and now they are bringing their bold shapes and forms to the floral shop too. They have become a popular addition to floral arrangements and even bridal bouquets.
Creating a bouquet with succulents is simple. All you need to do is add a stem so you can bundle the “blooms” together.
Materials for Making a Succulent Bouquet
- Cut flowers
- Floral stem wire (available at craft stores)
- Floral tape
Directions for Making a Succulent Bouquet
Remove the succulent from its nursery pot and gently wash away the soil and cut back the roots.
To create a “stem” insert a piece of floral wire into the base of the succulent and bend to form a loop.
Wrap the base of the succulent and top of the floral wire with floral tape.
Assemble your succulent flowers and a few cut flowers from the garden into a bouquet.
Hold all the stems at the top as close to the base of the flowers as possible and secure with floral tape. This will cinch the blooms together into a tight bouquet.
As a final step wrap the stems with a pretty ribbon.
