Succulents are sturdy, low-maintenance plants ideal for any drought-tolerant garden in the summer, although this wreath will last year-round. The fillable metal base can be changed with the seasons.
It's easy to make a wreath in any style. This fillable metal base—combining elements of the Himmeli-inspired geometric shape in a brass finish—can be decorated with fresh flowers, foraged evergreen branches, or small ornaments. We like both Terrain's Fillable Metal Wreath Base ($42, shopterrain.com) and Modlode's Geometric Wreath ($95, modlode.com). Hang it on the front door and swap out elements to change as the seasons do. For summer, we used growing succulents including aeonium, crassula, echeveria, gasteria, haworthia, kalanchoe, sedum, and sempervivum varieties. To water the wreath, submerge in water for ten minutes; allow to dry completely between watering. Fertilize about once every six weeks.
