DIY: Make a Succulent Bracelet
Written by: Allison Swan
Want to wear something other than a corsage on your wrist for a special event? Make a statement with this unique succulent bracelet by the 100 Layer Cake blog! The best part is that you can make your bracelet a few days in advance and it'll still look fresh the day of the event. Here's what you will need:
Brass cuff with 1.25" width
Oasis floral adhesive
Dry sheet moss
Succulent cuttings: 1" for focal succulents and assortment of various smaller supporting succulents to fill in around the focal succulents
1. To get started, put a little glue on the base of the cuff on the top and a small amount on the sides, leaving enough room to tighten the cuff on the wrist. Let the glue and moss to dry.
2. While the glue and moss are drying, prep your cuttings. Make sure there are no bad leaves on the bottom of succulents and the stems are flush with the base of the succulents.
3. Put a small amount of glue on the base of the succulent. Place the succulent to the bracelet and hold firmly for about 30 seconds, making sure the succulent has securely adhered to the bracelet. Repeat this step with the other focal succulents.
4. While those are drying, prep the supporting succulents. Add supporting succulents around focal succulents, pressing and holding with each addition.
5. Make sure all areas and glue residue are covered. If there's a spot of glue residue, add another small succulent until you have covered all areas and reached your desired look.
Once the event is over, cut the succulents off and plant them!
