Many of you might or might not know I'm a big fan of succulents :love::LOL: So I really love the idea of actually give some of those ideas a try in the future. Some of those are more doable than others tho. Please let me know what you think :)



My future mother in law would surely love this:

That's a great idea for a thread, Trellum!:) Succulents are truly beautiful and you can do so many things with them, they always look very decorative. Personally, I really like succulent wreaths.
This one is lovely:

Succulents are such beautiful plants with their textures and colors. I love seeing all that people have done with them in terms of gardens, very nice work and beautifully done.

Like I mentioned before, I love everything that is heart-shaped. I'm a romantic girl:LOL: So it made me really happy when I found these pictures, in my opinion they're very inspiring:



A succulent heart like this makes a lovely wall decoration, doesn't it?

Nice! I really enjoy succulents, too. The turtle is my favorite. How would you go about doing that? I have always wanted to do a succulent arrangement, but I am afraid to move plants about. I tend to kill them after moving them.

Thanks, @Mariam ! Actually the turtle one is the one that made me type ''some are more doable than others'', lol :D:LOL: I guess doing that would be such a feat. I guess it would be easier to use moss. But I understand your fear when it comes to moving plants :) Have you been unlucky when moving succulents too??

@claudine I looooooooooved the wall decoration idea!!! :) That's so pretty and would make a great gift! I can definitely see myself giving that as a gift to my future mother in law, because she really loves that kind of things. I also like heart shaped things, Claudine :love::) Thanks for sharing those ideas with us, I will definitely look into them in the future!

Glad you liked it, @firelily99 I see this kind of decorations like some sort of art to be honest. I started to get interested in this kind of things since I came back from the Netherlands, because I found out my future mother in law really loves this kind of things :)(y)

That succulent wreath is lovely, Claudine! Thanks for sharing it with us! I can recognize most of the succulents in the icture, but I'm not sure I'd get cuttings just to make a wreath, I would feel a bit guilty :oops: But the idea in itself is extremely beautiful! Specially if you are into making beautiful things :love: My future mother in law loves this kind of things :LOL: So many wonderful ideas!

Very nice, there are several that have given me ideas of what I can do with a few pots I have in the yard. I like succulents and generally have one or two in the yard or house. I had a huge Jade plant when I lived in California.

I think that succulents make a lovely table decoration. They look much more unique than regular flowers. I'm not saying that cut flowers aren't pretty, but I feel that it's nice to see something different from time to time.
This looks great:

That's a really beautiful and original idea, Claudine :) Actually succulents are a bit better for this kind of things because they last way longer than your average flower ;) Flowers are beautiful but once you cut them they have a really short life span!

What about this amazing terrarium:



A pretty decoration idea using a succulent :)

Glad to hear this thread gave you some good ideas :) Hopefully you can put to good use some (if not all) of those plant pots you are no longer using ;) I also love succulents, because they are so easy to take care of and they seem to do much better when you neglect them, lol. You gotta love a plant that is like that!

Trellum, this terrarium is beautiful!

How do you feel about succulent wedding bouquets? I'm talking about something like this:



In my opinion it's a funny idea and I find it quite pretty, but it's not something for me. I'm a traditional girl:) I want roses in my bouquet!

Hehehee!!!! Wow, I must say that succulent bouquet looks rather original and nice, but I'm not sure I'd pick that one for my wedding. It's a really beautiful idea tho :) Very unique and modern :)

I really like this idea:

Wow, it looks really gorgeous! But how to water these succulents? I'd be a little afraid of stomping on them. They are planted very close to each other.

Here is a funny idea for a decoration:

I was wondering the same thing. I guess I'd get a small bucket of water and just throw it? :D I'm guessing letting nature do their job wouldn't be the best idea, so my idea isn't appropriate for someone living in a country with a humid and rainy climate.

The idea you posted is gorgeous :love: Very original, but I really wonder how they do it?

Check this one:

Haha, a succulent horse s a really hilarious and creative idea:LOL:. I'm not sure if I'd like to put it in my garden though.

Here is something that I really love, a succulent wall art:



They're really colorful and pretty, aren't they?

It's so gorgeous!! It's prettier than many paintings that I've seen so far and it looks much more unique than them. I like how detailed all of these tiny plants are. You can look at them for hours without getting bored:)

The colors of these succulents are lovely, aren't they?:
