Here’s a quick and simple way to attach my paper echeveria succulents to a wire stem. This is very useful if you want to attach paper succulents to a dimensional piece like I did with this metal basket.
To make these you will need my Succulent 2D/3D die by Sizzix, 24 gauge florist wire, liquid adhesive, wire cutters and cardstock.
Die cut seven each of the tri-petal dies and ten of the single petal die for each complete succulent. Repeat if you are making more succulents.
Using a die pick, curl the edges of each petal and set aside.
Cut an 8 inch piece of florist wire for each complete succulent.
Fold the wire in half. Using the die pick, twist and create a small loop on the fold of the wire. Remove the die pick and bend the small loop to a 90 degree angle to the wire.
Starting with the smallest, tri-petal pieces, insert the wire stem into the center of the piece until the center is resting against the loop. Add a small amount of adhesive and insert each piece of the die cut pieces until all of the pieces are attached. This creates one complete succulent.
You can now use the wire stem to securely attach these succulents to various projects. Trim the excess wire if desired.
Have fun and please use the hashtag #LyndaKanase to share your makes.
