Succulents are not only beautiful to look at, but they've been growing in popularity over the last couple of years. These unique plants have been known to symbolize strength and love. Besides conveying an aesthetic value or emotional meaning, succulents are increasingly showing up in beauty products, home products and more. Adding succulents to your home, whether real or decorative, will certainly contribute an element of style.
To adorn your home with these lovely plants, all you need are a few simple art supplies and an idea of where you'll hang your new decorations. This piece will fit in well with an interior design or in your garden. Either way, they'll make a gorgeous addition to your springtime decor.

Instructions
1. Tear off the first few rows of the pinecone to give it a flat base.
2. Twist the eyebolt into the now flat bottom of the pinecone.
3. Cut a long piece of twine, and tie it through the circular hole of the eyebolt and again at the end of the twine. This is how you'll hang your decoration.
4. Loop the roll of twine around your hand until you have multiple layers. Cut the end with the scissors.
5. Cut a small piece of twine, and tie it to the bottom of your layered twine piece, and then cut the opposite end so you've created fringe.
6. With pliers or cutters, cut off the tip of the pinecone, so that end is also now flat.
7. Glue the twine fringe to the bottom of the pinecone.
8. Glue the moss to the top of the pinecone near the eyebolt.
9. Set the decoration inside a drinking glass, so it stands up straight. Insert the succulent stems into the moss — don't just glue it on top of the moss.

10. Surround the succulents with more moss once they're secured to the pinecone.
