What you’ll need:
- Mini Glass Bottles/Magnetic Round Container/plastic container
- Artificial Succulents
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Scissors (wire cutters if succulents have wire in the stems)
- Optional: Tweezers
- Optional: File (if magnet edges are sharp. File down before attaching to keep from scratching surface it will be put on.)
- Optional: Ribbon, Vinyl, Other Items to Decorate Container
Gather your supplies and pre-heat your hot glue gun. Put estimated amount of moss in container and increase or decrease amount according as needed. Once you know how much is needed, remove from container. Put a liberal amount of glue in the inside of container. Insert moss before glue hardens. Glue around edges of moss to secure better if able to pull moss away from edge. Trim any moss that sticks out of container that you don’t want.
Cut/trim succulents. Pre-arrange before gluing them down so you know where you’d like them placed. Once you have it arranged, pull succulents out individually and put glue on stem and reinsert back into moss. Heavier succulents that are close to the edge can be glued to the side of the container. Try to keep glue on inside of container and not visible.
Once succulents are secure, we’ll be adding the magnets. File magnet if edges are sharp or may scratch surface. Add hot glue to magnet and put on outside of container on back side. Add moss or trim as needed.
Finishing Touches: With a tweezers, remove any glue strings. Add ribbon, vinyl, etc to outside of container.
