Instant Succulent Centerpiece Wreath For Holidays

by / 2 Comments / 361 View / December 11, 2013

Who has time for "decking the halls" these days?

What if you could put together an "instant succulent centerpiece wreath" for the holidays in less than one minute?

My friend, Jenny Peterson, a talented garden designer and  co-author of the popular book, "Indoor Plant Decor" shares her design idea in this short, 50 second video clip!


The beauty of Jenny's wreath is that you can easily change out the plants throughout the year for different holidays and occasions.


Purchase fresh and healthy looking 4"-inch plants to swap out the succulents.

Garden centers usually have a variety of small-size perennials and houseplants that you can use.

Here are some ideas:

Christmas Plants

  • Azaleas
  • Hydrangeas
  • Cyclamen
  • Ivy
  • Mini Roses
  • Poinsettias
  • Christmas Cactus
  • Gardenias

While you are in a creative mood, you can also add details to this wreath like nuts, citrus fruits or pomogranites!

  1. Hi Toltec,

    If your succulents are enclosed in glass, they are probably exposed to too much water as they are incased in the ornament.

    They are probably rotting.

    Succulents can be used in terrariums as long as the top is open and the planting medium is allowed to dry out before re-watering.


  2. I received a succulent “ornament” this Holiday. The leaves are turning brown. What’s causing this to happen?
