I am LOVING the succulent trend right now, but I can never keep them alive – luckily there are some amazing faux succulents available. I recently used them to fill a chicken feeder and then attached it to our wall – it gets lots of compliments! I’m excited to show you how I put together this Succulent Feeder Decor.
It’s one of those projects that’s hard to capture the awesomeness in photos, so just know that it’s awesome.
Succulent Feeder Decor
Let’s get started! You’ll need:
–Faux Succulents, various types and shapes
–Foam Sheet Scraps
–Dried Moss Decor
–Chicken Feeder or other container
So when I first had the chicken feeder added to the wall, I just stuck in some tiny succulents that I had on hand – they weren’t really working in the space – too small scale. But they couldn’t get bigger because of those tiny pots they were in.
So, on to the project!!
First I cut the foam sheets to fit into the bottom of my container. This will give a sturdy base in which to place the succulents. I then covered the foam with the decorative moss:
My container isn’t very deep. The succulents come with pretty long stems, which is great when you’re using them in a deep container. For my shallow container, I used the wire cutters to cut the stems shorter. I left about an inch and a half of the stem.
To secure the succulents in your container, simply press their stems firmly through the moss and into the foam sheet. Arrange as desired. I spread out the tall ones first and then filled in with the low-profile succulents.
That’s all there is to it!! And the best part – it’s going to stay looking this great (even without watering 😉 )
