Succulents and cactus are a trend, at least here in Spain. But I guess nowadays these things are pretty much global… Anyway, here’s a quick and simple way to decorate a door wreath for the summer.

All you need is a door wreath and some plastic plants. You can find all these things at dollar stores (or equivalent in your country) or home decoration shops.

The idea is so simple it doesn’t even deserve a how to. Let your creativity guide you. You can fix the plants to the wreath with silicone glue or with a wire, if you want them removable.
