Thrift Store Swap



Welcome to the 4th edition of the Thrift Store Swap

If you are unfamiliar with this swap, organized by Lyn at MidMichiganMom, here are the basics. 14 crafty bloggers commit to buying and repurposing 2 thrift store items. For this edition, one item must be a wreath and both items must cost under $10. .

Sounds easy right? There’s a catch…they are not buying for themselves! Each blogger is surprised with what they must repurpose. So what happens when the unknown challenges 14 crafty ladies?

You get some out of the box tutorials!

I’m a succulent junkie so when I thought of this DIY succulent wreath idea it was a must!




What You Need:

  • A wreath
  • Glue Gun & Sticks
  • Fake Succulents (Dollar Tree)
  • Scissors


How To Create:

  1. If you have a used wreath like me get all the material off and toss it.
  2. Cut the stems off the fake succulents
  3. Place where you want them and hot glue them down


It’s so easy & looks so good hanging!



Here are the geniuses behind these DIY Tutorials. Make sure to check out each one! Take a look at the link up below for each creation…

    Great idea! I am so into succulents right now. I love the idea of repurposing an ugly old wreath and giving it life again.

    Whoa! That's SO much better than how the wreath started off. lol At first I thought they were real succulents! I need a new wreath for my front door because the one I have has seen better days. I'll have to see if I can find a wreath at a thrift store that I can give new life to.

    Very nice. I actually bought a bunch of those succulents from the Dollar Store to make a project too.
