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.
