1. Gather up all of the succulents from your local dollar store. Sort by by height and shape.

2. Cut the stems of any grouped succulents by running your scissors along the plastic tubing to slice it. Once the metal wire is exposed, bend the stem back and forth until the wire snaps.

3. Purchase a foam wreath form at your local dollar store.

4. Count the number of succulents you have of each type and divide the wreath accordingly. For instance, if you have 4 long pieces, draw an imaginary line down the vertical and horizontal centers of the wreath, creating quarters. Each piece of like greenery should be tucked in to separate quarters. This will insure your wreath has a consistent and symmetrical appearance. Starting with the longest pieces first, begin adding your succulents to the wreath form by pressing the stems into the foam. Make sure you stagger the placement and feel free to group smaller pieces with larger ones, as this will give your wreath depth and dimension.

5. Once you feel your wreath has sufficient accents, step back five feet and take a look. Note any bald spots and add additional succulents where applicable.

6. Hang your wreath and admire your handy work every time you invite a guest inside.
