Last Friday when I was in San Francisco, I visited my favorite garden store, Flora Grubb. They are known for their lush and abundant succulents and offer you every which way to create and grow your own succulent gardens that either hang on the wall or in beautiful containers around your living space. I was inspired to get to making the paper succulents that have been brewing in my creative brain for a while and decided to start with a simple paper wreath. This is my new front door wreath, perfect for late Summer and Fall. I made it with polka dot card stock and felted card stock in different colors that I pick up at Michaels. I designed four different succulent plants and mixing and matching the papers with the patterns made something that is just lovely out of paper and a green foam wreath. So simple. Since I have four different succulents tutorials and patterns, I will be sharing those in the following posts. I will also show you alternative ways to use these pretty succulents in small pots, wooden containers or glass bowls. So many options! Enjoy the paper eye candy and we will get to work on the DIY tomorrow. Cheers! ~ Lia
