This Centerpiece is a fun summertime project. The succulents give a fresh summer vibe to any indoor or outdoor space.
We finally got a dining table on our patio, and I wanted to create a center piece for it. I found some really inexpensive items at the Target dollar spot and Big Lots and figured I could make a centerpiece that would look perfect for the summer time.
Difficulty Level: Easy
- Sand for floral filling (white and green)
- Succulent décor pieces
- Wire Cutters
- Clear Pitcher from Target dollar spot
Step 1: Poured Sand
I poured most of the white sand in the picture. I didn’t pour all of it because I wanted to leave some to pour on top of the floral pieces so that the stem would be covered
Step 2: Cut the Stems
I had to cut some of the stems of the flower pieces. They were pretty thick and difficult to cut through so I used wire cutters to do this. You can also use floral tools I just didn’t have any this time.
Step 3: Picked two Large Succulents
I picked one large succulent piece and one slightly smaller piece to be the main visual elements in the display. I added these bigger pieces first. I had to add the larger items first or else I wouldn’t be able to fit them in once I started adding the smaller pieces.
Step 4: Added smaller pieces
I picked a few of the smaller floral décor items and pushed them in. I was careful to not overload the picture because I wanted to save room for the additional sand.
Step 5: Pour in remaining sand
I sprinkled in some of the green sand and the remaining white sand making sure to cover the stems of the succulent pieces so that the stems were not visible.
Step 6: Display
Here is how it turned out
