Living Wreath

What type of item is this? Plant or Flower How would you describe the style of your project? Classic How would you describe the style of your project? Traditional How would you describe the style of your project? Outdoorsy What are you most proud of? That I got it done. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes time, or at least it took me quite some time to finally get it done. You have to use floral wire to keep the moss in place and it was very tedious but it was worth the results. Now just waiting for it to grow. I used succulents because they don't need too much water.

Q&A with CarSok

annibby093917855 asked:
I love succulents and I love how this looks. I hope I can do one like this. Is there any soil in it or charcoal for the succulents?
CarSok answered:
There is soil. I laid the wet moss down and then put soil in the middle and wrapped the moss around it and held it in place with wire. The only problem I had was that the succulents grew way too big. If you do some research online you can see how it's done.
