Can’t watch the video or need written instructions? Follow the instructions below:
Add the styrofoam ball to the inside of the cornucopia basket and attach it with a little hot glue. Make sure it’s securely glued so the weight of the succulents don’t pull it out.
Then, add moss to the styrofoam ball with hot glue. Cover the ball completely with moss. Attach all over with hot glue.
Next, add the succulents by pushing the wires into the styrofoam ball. Trim the wires as needed.
It might be a good idea to have a plan for your arrangement before inserting the wires into the styrofoam. So plan this out as needed.
