snazzy succulent

I was going to ask you guys what you thought about this clearance wreath from Z Gallerie, because i can't decide if i love it or it's ugly.  It's been a few weeks, and i still can't answer that question fully.  It may be ugly, but i couldn't stop thinking about it.  Or loving it. 

I was also trying to figure out if i could DIY this, but i have never seen succulents in the fake flower areas of craft stores.  Have you?  And sometimes those flowers can be a little pricey, especially since there really can't be any compromise on kind here.  Or maybe i'm just trying to make myself feel better since i already ponied up money for it.  I will let you know in 5-9 days how it looks in person.  It's funny how the little things get you all giddy!

It is very unique and I can't say it is ugly, just different. I think it could really be better once displayed!! If you can't stop thinking about it, it is something you really like and it will look good in your home!!

Recently I've been seeing forms to insert live plants at the nursery like what you are wanting. Personally, I think it'd be a lot easier and cheaper to buy the faux one and hang it out on your back patio. I'd probably spray it with poly to protect it. Just saying. ☺

It's not my favorite, but I tend to play it very safe!

I think it is personal. But if you really loved it that much, i think you would have bought it. especially on sale. I only buy things that i can not pass. Saves me money.

I sort of feel the same way about it - I think I really like it but maybe it's kind of ugly! I can't decide...I hate when that happens! I actually was on the hunt for fake succulents a month or so ago and didn't really have much luck. I found a few places online that sold them but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I do think that fake succulents tend to look pretty close to the real thing though!
