How to Make a Succulent Centerpiece


STEP 1: First let’s start with our vases. Take your two 7 inch vases and nautical rope. Wrap your nautical rope around the bottom of your vases adding hot glue as you go to make sure the nautical rope adheres to your vases. Now add 1 bag of river rock to each vase, making sure it is 2 and 1/2 inches below the rim, then add your pillar candles.

STEP 2: Next let’s add our 9 inch vase. For this vase, you will repeat step 1, but you will not add the nautical rope at the bottom of the vase. We are going to create a pedestal for this vase. To create your pedestal add your nautical rope around your green foam pot insert. Then use hot glue to secure it, now sit your vase on your foam.

It’s Time To Add The Succulents

STEP 3: Now on to our bowl of beautiful succulent plants. First, remove your succulents from the pot it comes in. Then evenly spread 2 bags of river rock in your bowl and place your tea lights in your bowl being sure to cover the silver rim.

STEP 4: The next step is to deconstruct your bamboo chimes so we can add them in our bowl. Place 2 long and 1 short bamboo chime on the opposite side of your tea lights, then add your beautiful green succulents to your bowl, be sure you have a 1 inch gap between your succulents and your tea lights so you don’t have any fire mishaps when you light your tea lights.

Create Your Moss Pedestal

STEP 5: Create your moss pedestal for your bowl. We will do this by first adding hot glue to your foam disc. Next cover your disc with your green moss. Repeat this step around the sides of your disc as well using hot glue to ensure the moss sticks. After it all dries, you can then place your bowl on top of your moss pedestal.


STEP 6: Set the table

I absolutely love how this Succulent Centerpiece turned out! The outcome is amazing and will definitely add that extra special touch to any wedding, baby shower, bridal shower or your home!
