Wouldn't you like to make a fuss free and gorgeous succulent centerpiece using only succulents or succulents combined with your favorite flowers?
I don't know about you, but I love the fact that succulents have become oh so popular in the world of floral arranging and wedding decor. So when I collected some of these succulent flowers on a recent trip to the coast (which I'll share with you on Friday!) I knew I just had to use them to make a summer's end succulent centerpiece. You know, something a little crafty and eclectic using things that I had on hand. And I think I came up with a pretty good equation that you could duplicate if you'd like to make one centerpiece like this, or even many for a special occasion.
- a square metal tray of some kind, this one was only $1.99 at Amazing Savings in NY, a great deal
- one tall colored glass bottle, mine is a Chivas Blue Label bottle that I was eyeing for some time!
- one short clear jar, mine is a hinged cover canning/storage jar
- two very small colored bottles, or even a beautiful tea cup or cream pitcher might look great, I used two plastic very tall shot glasses that I got at Target last summer
- jute twine
- metalic gold ribbon
- some shells or pieces of costume jewelry or interesting keys, anything small and beautiful, little porcelaine figurines or vintage pillboxes could be beautiful too
- Succulent flowers and pieces of succulent plant that look like flowers, or some combination of succulents and actual flowers
How To: Wrap twine around the middle of the clear jar. Add a little shine by wrapping some thin gold ribbon around one of your tiny bud vases. Make a low dense arrangement in the jar, and fill the tall bottle with just a few sprigs. Each of the two small bud vases (the other one is hidden behind the jar) should hold a single bloom or piece of succulent. That's it!
