DIY Succulent Vases

It was time for a little update to my coffee table but so it was time for some DIY succulent vases to add some greenery. I feel like every room should have something live, especially green. I don’t follow that, but even these faux succulents were a nice addition to my coffee table vignette.
I began with a variety of empty pantry containers.
I used hot glue and began wrapping my containers with rope.
I just kept wrapping and gluing, making sure I squeezed the rope tightly together as I added more rope to the container.
When I got to the top, I made sure that I wrapped the rope around to hide the metal rim at the top of the container.
The next step was to stick a piece of floral foam down inside the can without having it rise above the top edge of the vase.
I added moss onto the top of the floral foam, filling the spaces all the way around the edge of the can.
I “planted” my little faux succulent and it looked great! Time to start more!
I varied the heights and circumference of the containers for interest
