- Living wreath form with liner

- Variety of annual herbs or succulents

- Potting soil/Cactus soil

- Moss

- Sharp scissors


STEP 1- Use a two-part wire wreath form and separate the two pieces. Before placing the liner in the form, make sure to moisten thoroughly. Place the jute liner (plastic side in) and fill it with moistened potting soil. Then, cover the soil with the second jute piece and clip the wire frame into place. You can plant on either side of the wreath.

STEP 2- Using sharp scissors, cut holes into the liner into an ‘X’ shape. Be sure to space your plants evenly.

STEP 3- Plant your plants through each slit.

STEP 4- Once finished, lay the wreath flat on its back to give it a dew days to settle in, then hang in place. The plants will soon adjust to vertical living and will fill out the entire wreath.
