I went to work while sitting on my porch. These are the types of projects I can only do when the hubby is not home and are the reason he got me my own camera this year. If he would have seen the condition of my hands while I was taking these pictures, he would have had a heart attack.
At this point of the succulent wreath making process, I was feeling really confident that I had it under control. It looks good, right? Needs more plants but otherwise promising.
And then I went to hang it up and it started to crumble. Plants falling out, general messiness, and panicky shrieks from me because I didn’t have the camera ready to take a picture 😉
So what is a crafter to do when a project goes awry? Well, turn it into something else of course! Behold a succulent wreath centerpiece. That was totally my intention when I started this wreath. Promise.
At least it looks good for now! Not sure the fate of these poor succulents in my hands but only time will tell.
