Creating a lovely planter box centerpiece for your wedding or home decorations has never been easier! It’s also a great way to save and stay within your budget by using artificial florals.
For this DIY, you’ll need a planter box, either rectangular or square depending on the design you prefer, silk flowers, artificial greenery and faux succulents as well as heavy-duty wire cutters. To start, make sure to measure the inside of your planter box so you know what size styrofoam you’ll need.
All planter boxes come with plastic liners but for our DIY we are not going to need them. Place the styrofoam block inside the planter box.
Choose your favorite succulent designs from our new faux succulent collection. Here, you’ll want to alternate by mixing wider bigger flowers with smaller succulent clusters. There are so many designs available! We used 3 pcs 12" tall Assorted Artificial Faux Succulent Picks Sprays Stems and 3 pcs 6" Assorted Green Artificial Succulent Echeveria Rosettes Picks Stems for our look as well as silk flowers.
To start, place the bigger succulent picks inside the styrofoam and then the bigger silk peony flowers. This will let you know how much space you still need to fill. We’re using an asymmetrical composition but feel free to get creative here!
Accent the bigger faux florals with smaller silk flowers and succulents.For the finishing touch, add a few sprigs of artificial eucalyptus greenery. This will really pull the whole arrangement together and give it that natural look!
