Succulent Wall Planter

I am LOVING the succulent trend right now, but I can never keep them alive – luckily FloraCraft makes some amazing faux succulents that you can find at WalMart.  I recently used them to fill a chicken feeder and then attached it to our wall and it gets all the compliments!  I’m excited to show you how I put this together.

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It Fun® Foam Blocks
  • FloraCraft® Design It: Simple Style® Succulent and Air Plant Picks
  • Dried Spanish Moss
  • Wire Cutters
  • Chicken Feeder or Other Container


First, I cut the foam blocks to fit into the bottom of my container.  This will give a sturdy base in which to place the succulents.  For extra security, use low-temp glue to attach the foam to the container.  Then, I hid the foam with the Spanish moss.

For my shallow container, I used the wire cutters to cut the stems of the succulent picks to fit.  I left about an inch and a half of the stem.

To secure the succulents in your container, simply press their stems firmly through the moss and into the foam sheet.    Arrange as desired.  I spread out the tall ones first and then filled in with the low-profile succulents.

That’s all there is to it!!  And the best part – it’s going to stay looking this great (without water!)
