Did you guys see our big bathroom reveal last week?? If so, you probably noticed that GORGEOUS super cool focal point on the wall.

Yes, for sure, I’m proud of our bathroom that we renovated in just six weeks.

But I’m so equally proud of making this simple, yet impactful succulent wall decor. It adds life to the room without adding any maintenance because believe or not these are all fake succulents.

I honestly don’t think I’ve made something this cool in a long time. I can’t believe just how easy it was to make (and hang).

Here’s a quick video of behind the scenes while I was creating this succulent wall decor:

Supplies for DIY fake succulent wall decor:

High & Mighty 20 lb wall hangerbuy it here or see the full line

Shadowbox frame – mine is 12″ x 16″ with a 1.5″ working depth

Floral foam – same thickness (or slightly smaller) as the working depth of your frame

Keyhole saw

Fake succulents

Preserved moss

Hot glue

Hot glue gun

Picture hanging wire

Prep your shadowbox frame.

For this succulent wall decor, you’ll need to take the back off of the shadowbox frame and remove the glass entirely.

Cut floral foam.

Now you want to cut the floral foam down to size so it fits perfectly into the shadowbox. I just used a little keyhole saw to do this, but it did make a huge mess so you may want to do it over the trashcan.

Start with the moss.

I started by laying out the moss over the floral foam. This was really because I wanted to make sure I liked all the colors together and I wanted to make sure I had enough.

Roughly plan.

Next you want to roughly plan out where the bigger fake succulents will go.

Work in small sections.

Now you can start attaching your moss and succulents! All you really do is grab your hot glue gun and start gluing. The moss should easily attach to the floral foam with hot glue. For the succulents, just cover the stem with hot glue and stick it straight into the floral foam. I found it easiest to work in small sections and continue filling into all the blank spaces with more moss.

Put it all together.

It’s really pretty simple. Just push the floral foam into the shadowbox and reattach the back panel. Depending on the depth of your shadowbox and foam, it may be a tight squeeze to fit the back panel on, I had to push pretty hard to get it back into the place.

Now this is where my friends from High & Mighty come in. I was wrapping this succulent wall decor up when we were getting ready to finish the bathroom. I don’t have to tell you that our tools were spread out all the way from the garage to the bathroom. The state of our house was completely embarrassing. There’s just no way I could have found a nail and hammer in the mess. Luckily you don’t need ANY TOOLS to use the High & Mighty wall hangers. We just added a little picture hanging wire to the back of the frame.

Then you seriously just push the wall hanger into the wall with your thumb and voila! Their tagline is “place. push. hang.” and it’s perfect because it’s so true. It was so quick and easy.

Our fake succulent wall decor was pretty light so we only needed the 20 lb hanger, but they also make hangers for heavier items too! And they have hooks and floating shelves that I seriously can’t WAIT to try out!
