Sunset Staff

This succulent centerpiece DIY will teach you how to create a tablescape worthy of wedding decorations or a full-time spot in your dining area. Start with any shallow container–it doesn’t need a hole in the bottom for drainage–and a variety of small succulents. We used one larger succulent to anchor the container, but you can go with a variety of sizes and shapes. Plant your largest succulent first before adding the smaller succulents one at a time out from the center. Carefully divide any small succulents like sedum to fill in the gaps or spill over the edge. Keep your beautiful DIY succulent centerpiece in a sunny spot.
