Easy Succulent Centerpiece Table Decoration

 Easy Succulent Centerpiece Table Decoration

Hello! I'm so happy that you decided to check out this easy succulent decoration project. 
 I was inspired to create this centerpiece after my sister had mentioned she was looking at purchasing a succulent wax burner.  So my design does not include a wax burner, but if you stick around I'll tell you how you can create your very own succulent centerpiece table decoration. 

Materials Needed

❤ Artificial Succulents and a flower 
For my design I used 4 succulent plants
I purchased my  artificial succulents from my local Walmart
(Make sure to check your local dollar store as well)

❤ A wooden bowl
I purchased my wooden bowl at Walmart. 
You can actually find any container of your choice at your local craft store

❤ A package of craft rocks
My rocks were purchased at Walmart, but you can try shopping at your local dollar store, or craft store.

❤ Assorted green glass rocks
I purchased these at my local dollar tree

❤ One battery operated candle


Glue- this is for gluing down a middle piece to hold your candle. I'll explain more about this later

A pot- I used a plastic pot from when I purchased my pepper plant.

Spray paint- this is only used if you are using a middle piece for your candle

Creating your succulent decor

Start off with positioning where you would like your candle to go inside of your bowl.
I placed my candle in the middle of the bowl. Once you have done this step, take your candle, and place it inside of your pot. (I used a plastic pot, and applied glue over the bottom section. This will allow you to glue the pot to the bottom of your bowl, and this will make an easy insert for your candle.)
I did this step because I did not want for rocks to slide every time I were to take my candle out to turn it off and on. Using this pot for your candle to be inserted will eliminate rocks from filling the center of your bowl. It creates a barrier around your candle.

Once you have made sure that your candle will fit inside of your pot, take some spray paint and paint your pot. (This step will also depend on which pot you are using.)
If you already have a pot with a color you would like, simply skip the spray paint step.
After spray painting your pot, add it into your bowl. If you are using a pot that has some weight to it, you can skip the glue step. Once you have added your bowl inside of your pot, add in your rocks. Make sure to fill your rocks up to the top part of your pot. 

Insert your candle, and add in a few of your glass rocks. Taking a your succulents, arrange them around your candle. Take your succulents and poke them through the rocks. I added a few white flowers around my succulents. I thought this helped to bring a little more softness to my centerpiece. 

You're all done! It really is a simple DIY project, and it looks absolutely beautiful. You can add this in any room in your home.  The cost for this project was around $25. I'm sure you can come in at a lower price if you find your items discounted. 

I hope you have enjoyed this simple DIY project! If you end of making this, please let me know! I'd love to hear how your centerpiece turns out!  




  1. How pretty, I like it. Love the string of pearls too. Thanks so much for linking up with me at the Unlimited Link Party 25. Pinned!

    1. Dee,
      thank you so much! I love how it turned out as well. And thank you for pinning. :)

  2. What an attractive project! Succulents have long been a favorite. Thanks for sharing with us at Creatively Crafty #ccbg :)

    1. Lydia,
      thank you so much! I love succulents too. I've always thought that they are so pretty when they are displayed. :)

  3. This looks gorgeous! Unlike the rest of my family, I've always been a fan of succulents, so I would love to make something like this.

    1. Kat, thank you so much! I love succulents as well, and I think there are so many ways to add decorate with them, and add them to your home decor. :)

  4. That's really pretty and I love how easily it can be customized to different styles. My office is all black, red and white, and I bet a black pot and opting for the reddish tone succulents would make this a great option for the accent table in there. I'm going to have to give it a try! The table looks so bare right now... it needs something lol

    1. Britt, thank you!! You're so right, you could definitely customize this, and make it into any style you would like. I love having options like that, and I think that is why I love creating things. Go for it, and make one for your table! =)

  5. how cute is that! lovely idea. I like the way succulents look and like this it gives even better impression. looks very fancy!

  6. I saw something like this at the upscale plant shop down the street from me. I want to get one for a house-warming gift next week and now I think I can whip one up myself!

  7. Totally off topic here, but I'm pretty sure we have the exact same area rug. Lol. You have good taste! I love how simple this project is to create, and how customizable it is as well. With being able to use any bowl or even colored glass beads, it can be made to fit a certain style or room, and be beautiful. These would make wonderful homemade gifts too.

    1. Erica, how cool! I love that was have the same area rug. I couldn't pass it up, it was on sale, and it looks great. Thank you so much for your kind words. I really enjoyed creating this craft. It was simple, and fun to put together. :)
