Materials List

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Balls: 4”, 3” and 2.5”
  • FloraCraft® Diamond Dust® or Glass Glitter
  • Design It:® Simple Style® Succulent and Air Plant Picks
  • Vase Filler Stones: White

  1. Spray the tops of the succulents and air plants with white primer and let dry.  Lightly spray the ColorTex Flurry overtop of the white primer.  While the ColorTex is still wet, sprinkle with glitter.  The paint will secure the glitter in place as it dries.  Set aside to dry.

  2. Cut a small, flat spot off the top and bottom of the 3” and 2.5” balls and the bottom of the 4” ball.  Cut a small, flat spot from the top of the 4” ball at a slight angle.

  3. Glue stones side-by-side to cover the balls leaving the flat spots of the balls bare.

  4. Arrange the succulents into the tops of the balls as shown.

Are you like me and can not grow these succulents without them dying? I like the way they look because they give some character to your dcor. This is a great idea then. I thought by looking at the picture that they were real and I love love the vases and I am in awe that the vases are made from Styrofoam balls and rocks. They look so unique and I can see putting these all around the house and you will never have to water them or worry about them dying and the best part is they look so real. Now all I have to do is find where I can buy them from and which ones I want where. Super easy and a great gift also for that person who loves plants but travels or does not have much time. Anyone agree?
