Succulent & Moss Inspired Art

Succulent & Moss Inspired Art - My Crafty Spot

Hi Crafters! It’s Erin, from The Blue Eyed Dove. Spring sure seems like it’s here to stay, and I couldn’t let the season pass by without creating one more project using succulents and moss {as you may remember last month I shared this easy spring wreath with you}. Plus, I’m pretty obsessed with this springy and green combo! Today, I’m sharing another way you can get creative with succulents and moss for the season.


Shadow Box Picture Frame (the frame I used was 10 1/2 inches square)

A Variety of Succulents

Sheet of Moss


Hot Glue Gun

Succulent Moss Art How-To


  1. Use the stock image insert of your shadow box frame as a guide to cut the moss background.
  2. Next, hot glue the moss sheet onto the stock image insert. {Note: This helps keep the moss background sturdy.}
  3. Use hot glue to secure each succulent into a cluster on the moss sheet.
  4. Once the succulents are set and secure place the moss sheet into the frame. {Note: The shadow box frame I used was about an inch and a half thick so I did not use the glass from the frame. And I think it looks much better without it anyways 😉 }

That’s it!
