Create a succulent plant to wear around your neck. Anyone who sees it will be shocked to learn that it is alive.
DIY Succulents (Adams Media, 2015) by Tawni Daigle, is a great read for new succulent owners. Find the practical information you need to care for your succulent plant, and all of the fun ideas for arranging different succulent plants. You can even find ideas for wearing succulents on a necklace or headband.
Here’s another accessory option that’s easy to make but looks stunning. Not only are the baby succulents absolutely adorable, but people will be astonished when they realize you are wearing living plants around your neck!
Mist the moss every few days to encourage roots to form on the stems of your plants. Your necklace should last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the types of plants you choose. Certain succulents may be more sensitive to the floral glue and will not root. If your plant does not start to root, simply remove it when it begins to wither and replace it with a new plant.
