Succulent and Berry Centerpiece

succulent and berry centerpiece

I am really really excited about today’s project!  This is one of those projects that turned out better then I imagined it in my head!  I love how versatile it is too.  Today I am sharing a really fun Succulent and Berry Centerpiece and the best part is that after the holidays, you can easily make it work with your everyday decor!  Seriously!  This piece is so versatile, I just love it!  It would be easy to change this up season to season too if you like.  And of course it is super simple to make, anyone can do it!

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Cube, 5″ (or whatever size fits your container best, I used 2)
  • FloraCraft® Design It:® Succulent Picks and Air Plant Picks
  • Red Berry Branches (from the floral department at your local craft store)
  • Container of your choosing
  • Wire Cutters
  • Red Ribbon (optional)

I found this really fun metal container at my local craft store and knew it would be perfect for this project!  I was really lucky because (2) 5″ foam cubes fit inside of it perfectly.  You want to ensure the foam is snug, so trim your foam if needed to fit your container.

Once the foam is in the container, arrange your succulents and air plant picks into the foam so that the entire container is filled with green succulents and air plants.

Use wire cutters to trim the berry branches.

Place berries randomly into the container to add a pop of color and holiday cheer.

Tie a holiday ribbon around the container if you like.

This is such a fun project because you can vary it so much!  Find a container you love and go from there.  If you prefer to add metallic berries instead of red ones, those would look fantastic too!  And you can add any color ribbon you like, or leave the ribbon off all together!  There are so many options.

After Christmas, I plan to remove the berries and red ribbon and keep this cute centerpiece up all year long!  I might even add different colored berries or decor into it for other seasons or holidays.  I love decor that transitions from season to season.

Have you decorated for the holidays yet?
