First, shorten longer branches and stems, but not too short. You can always trim them in the course of work.

Wrap wire around the flower stem to secure it, and then wrap it around the wreath as well. Tie ribbon tightly for hanging, and you’re done!

Succulents are a welcome plant, especially in the summer, when it comes to making long-lasting decorations. But since succulents have pleasant pastel colors, they are also suitable as accents for door wreaths to spring from natural materials, as this example also proves.
- Willow wreath, straw wreath or made from vines (bought or self-tied branches; in the last example you can see how to form branches into a wreath yourself).
- Moss panels as a base or gap filler
- Succulents (preferably those in pink are also included)
- floral wire
- optional spring flowers or flowering twigs
Make your own spring door wreath from succulents – here’s how:
You have several options if you want to use succulents for door wreaths for spring from natural materials. First, you can cover the whole wreath with moss (tie it with floral wire or fix moss panels with hot glue). But if you like the look of the wreath made of branches better, you can attach succulents to it right away and use small pieces of moss as gap fillers.
So, depending on your preference, start with either the succulents or the moss. The succulents can cover the entire wreath or just serve as an accent in one spot. You can easily try out what you like best by just spreading the plant parts out first without tying them down right away. Real moss as a base has the advantage that you can regularly moisten it and in this way also provide water to the succulents. This makes door wreaths for spring from natural materials last longer. Therefore, leave the roots on the plants and at most shorten them a little, if they interfere. If you want, you can still incorporate in a few flowering branches or spring flowers for even more spring feeling.
