Hot glue and any other heavy-duty adhesive
 Floral cutters

Acrylic paint, sponge brush and framed art on a table

If your frame comes with beads as shown in the picture above, take your scissors and remove the beads. You will actually reuse the beads later on in this craft. Take the inner section of your out and set it aside. Next, take your acrylic paint and paintbrush, and begin to apply your paint to your frame.
I applied three coats of my paint to my frame.

Next, use your paintbrush you apply paint over the inner section of the frame we removed earlier. I applied my white paint since the board had writing on it. I gave it around two coats of paint and after I used my blow dryer to give it a quick dry.

Twine, painted frame, adhesive and scissors on a table

Once you have painted the board, take it and pop it back into place on your frame. Now you are ready to begin cutting strands of your twine. Take your twine and cut four strands of the same size. You will need to determine how low you will want your plant hanger to be when cutting your twine.

Next, using your adhesive, begin to attach each strand of twine to the corners of your frame. I decided to use this all-purpose Loctite adhesive along with my hot glue. You can use any heavy-duty adhesive that you have on hand.

Now you are ready to use your beads in your design. I decided to add two beads to each strand of twine. If your frame did not come with the beads like my frame did, you can also just add your own beads, or create this without the beads as well.

Next, take your floral cutters and begin to cut your succulents to size.

After, take each succulent flower and begin to glue them down in the middle of your frame.  Once you add all of your succulents, take your four strands of twine and bring them together at the very top. Make sure that when you lift your frame up by the twine, your plant hanger is leveled. Tie off the top of the twine in a knot.

  5. I love this Stephanie, something I do not need to worry about keeping alive is a win in my book! So clever to use the sign as the base for the succulents. I love them, you may be amazed I am working on a small garden of them. If they do not make it on their own, then there is no hope for them!

  6. This is so cute Stephanie! Love the use of faux succulents because I kill absolutely every single living thing that comes in my house that doesn't breathe lol! My so whispered to the plants that I bought last year at Walmart on the way to the car, "Sorry my mom chose you. You're going to die soon. So, so sorry guys." LOL! I have a few of the Dollar Tree signs, so all I need is a few succulents. Thanks for sharing on Crafty Creators!!

  7. Steph, this is just lovely. Thanks for sharing this tutorial with Sweet Tea & Friends this month dear friend.
