DIY: Orchid and Succulent Arrangement



I wanted to share a recent little DIY I did for a clients coffee table.  Her coffee table is rather large so we needed something big and unique.

I found this amazing live edge wooden bowl at HomeGoods and knew it was perfect for this project.

Here is what you will need:


Secure the floral foam inside the vessel with a glue gun:



Add your moss. I used spanish moss, but you could use reindeer moss as well.



Push the silk orchids into the floral foam to secure.  I found these at Hobby Lobby.


Tuck in the succulents and you are done! These are from Hobby Lobby as well. But you can also purchase them here.


I also made one in this large clam shell from Z Gallerie. Get creative with your vessels and have fun!  
Some options here , here here and here

  7. that is gorgeous!!! I love it in the clam shell.

  8. Love this Amanda! I’d never guess the plants were faux. I’m so glad that you did this. I have wanted to do this for a while and I have the perfect container, but I do not have enough sun in my kitchen. The faux arrangement will be perfect!
