Follow along as we make these easy yet adorable succulent mushrooms. We are all about woodland decor, enchanted gardens, and anything with mushrooms or succulents so we KNEW we had to pair these when we found these vases!
Step 1: Gather your materials:
Hot glue gun
Preserved moss (available at Michaels or Amazon)
Mushroom shaped vase, we found this one at Target but depending on time of year you might have to get creative.
Baby succulents, succulent tips, or sedum plants
well draining soil.
Step 2: Dirt & Moss
Fill your pot/vase with well draining soil.
Hot glue reindeer moss onto the edge of the pot, I suggest layering browner moss with brighter greed pieces for a more natural, layered look.
Step 3: Pot up the plants
Make cuttings of your succulents and strip the lower leaves so that you have stems at least an inch long (but not much longer than 2 inches), stick stems down into the dirt deep enough that they are anchored and can put down roots.
Alternate dark and light, green and red, or green and purple, succulents for a varied and more natural look.
Step 4: Water & Enjoy
Give your plants a bit of water directly to their roots but be careful not to saturate or over-flow your vase.
10 days or so later mist your plants with a plant mister or spray bottle then alternate misting and watering every other 10 days or so.
When your plants out grow their pots just snip off too long ends or pull out overflowing plants and repot in new containers.
I hope you enjoy your mushroom babies! They work well styled along a windowsill or fireplace or even grouped along a dining table for a woodland display. How will you showcase your succulent creations?
