Small fiber pots wired to a simple grapevine wreath act as cachepots for 2-inch plastic nursery pots. Planted with all sorts of treasures such as mini African violets, succulents, or even wee poinsettias, the nursery containers are plunked into the fiber pots and switched out with ease as the seasons change.
Note: Small plants dry out quickly. To water, remove the plants from the fiber pots and soak in an inch of water for 30 minutes. Wipe the plastic pots dry and pop back into the fiber pots.
What You Need
- Floral wire
- Six small fiber pots
- Large grapevine wreath
- Hot-glue gun and glue stick
- Dried craft moss
- Six plants in 2-inch pots
Step 1: Thread Floral Wire
Thread the floral wire through each of the fiber pots. Gently press the wire against the interior of each pot, creating space to insert the nursery container. Continue to do this with each of the 6 pots, using separate wires for each pot.
Step 2: Attach Fiber Pots
Use the floral wire to attach each fiber pot to the grapevine wreath. Tightly wrap the wire around the wreath to secure it and ensure that the pot stays upright. Create an eye-pleasing asymmetry by grouping the pots on one section of the wreath.
Step 3: Hot-Glue Moss to Wreath
Taking the hot glue gun, attach the dried moss to the wreath around the pots. If you want a more natural-looking wreath, glue only small portions at a time. This will give your wreath more texture and life, exposing the branches to the wreath above the pots.
Step 4: Insert Plants
Place miniature plants, still in their nursery pots, in the fiber pots. We used African violets with shades of pink, purple, and white. You can even use succulents for your plants for a more urban-looking wreath.
If you're feeling even more festive, add a glow to your wreath, using a string of battery-operated micro lights. Simply wrap the lights tightly around the wreath and exchange your plants for mini evergreens for as a festive holiday swapout.
