In this post you’ll find the essentials of designer Katie Christensen’s Succulent Art-to-Wear Class (headband how-to). In the class, held at Weidner’s Gardens nursery in Encinitas, CA, Katie showed a simple technique for DIY succulent hats, headbands, bracelets and more.
“If you can glue moss to it,” Katie says, “You can glue succulents to it.” Her method is based on the “moss and glue” technique pioneered by designer Laura Eubanks, who introduced the succulent-topped pumpkin.
These wearable floral art pieces will last a couple of months if you them spritz them occasionally to hydrate the moss. Cuttings will root through the glue into the moss. Remove and plant them later, if you like.
It’s a great parent-child project (or grandmother-granddaughter).
