DIY Succulent Favors
DIY succulent favors are easy to make and you can use your imagination to make cute arrangements. Below are a few ideas that only require a few items to pull off.
Items you will need:
The process of arrangement is quite simple. Just put some glue on the piece of wood or agate stone where you would like to place the moss. It doesn’t have to be at the center, it can be skewed to one side.
Break a small piece of the moss and place it on the glue. Add some glue to the succulent’s tip and place it on the moss and you’re done.
You can be creative and use different items as the base, the idea is something that will hold the succulent cutting. The agate stones are popular because they’re available in one uniform color or many beautiful and bright colors.
Just like the succulent favors in pots, the DIY favors can also be removed and planted in bigger containers where they can last longer. It is obvious that succulent favors will create lasting memories for all your guests.
