DIY Succulent Centerpieces

Northwest Pearls: Succulent Centerpieces Last week I went to Colorado Springs for the wedding of a college roommate. I was her maid of honor so I went down a few days early.

Another bridesmaid and I helped her with some of the DIY stuff for the wedding. We created the succulent centerpieces for the tables and the paper flowers for the head table.

Here's how we made the succulent centerpieces:

We had:

  • 15 glass bowls from Home Depot
  • 17 succulents
  • White sand from Michael's
  • Scissors
  • Clear tape
  • Plastic wrap
  • A water dropper

We took the succulents out of their plastic containers and shook some of the dirt off. Then we took a square piece of plastic wrap and wrapped it around the rest of the roots and dirt so that it wouldn't transfer to the white sand. To keep the plastic wrap on, we took a piece of tape and taped around the bottom of the plant (the top of the dirt) to make sure that the plastic wrap wouldn't go anywhere.

We poured some sand into the bowls until it was where we wanted the bottom of that succulent to be. Then we placed that succulent into the bowl and carefully poured the white sand around it.

It was a pretty easy way to create some pretty centerpieces for A's wedding.
