Bee Skep and Succulents Wreath

I'm so excited to be joining Alison@The Polohouse for Favorites on the First. 
The theme this month, is sharing your favorite front door decor.  




The "inspiration piece" for my Spring wreath this year, is  the little bee skep, I found on sale at Michael's. It had a few succulents already attached...




... and I just added a few more succulents and a few other flowers from an old wreath.




What do you think? Do bee skeps and succulents work together?
Yes?...No?...Maybe?
Alison said we could also use door decor from old posts too, so here's my door basket from last Spring... 







...recognize some of the plant material? 
I've used the tulips and hydrangeas in several posts and the berries and small white flowers for the bee skep. I'm definitely getting a lot of  use from these flowers.




Please be sure to visit Alison @ The Polohouse for Favorites on the First, and share your favorite door decor.

I LOVE that first one with the BEE SKEP and YES the succulent work. BUT at my house "BIRDS would move right in there and I'd have to use my other door"! NOT that it's a bad thing, "I'd LOVE that too"!
LOVED your post!!!
Hugs,
Donna

So beautiful, I like the bee skeps with the succulents...it looks very inviting.

I just adore your wreath with the bee skep and succulents! I think they go together just fine. I don't have anything hanging on my front door and plan on leaving it that way since I have leaded glass in my door. I've got enough decor on my porch anyway. Should be a good party with lots of ideas!

I've probably told you this before but I think you are brilliant! I love the bee skep on the wreath. I have a bee skep just sitting on my back porch...it may just end up on my door. Great inspiration and beautiful wreath. Have a good week!

Sue said...

Babs, I was at a wonderful nursery on Friday and saw the succulent wreaths that they had made. One was about 4 feet in diameter and lush with a variety of beautiful succulents. They were all very expensive- some were over $500! Yikes! Your door wreath is very pretty and the little skep adds just the right touch. I will get around to a wreath one of these days. Life is hectic here! xo Sue

Sarah said...

Babs, the bee skep and succulents definitely work. This is a darling idea. Makes me want to rush out to Michaels and see if they still have these little charmers.
Beautiful spring door decor! ~ Sarah

What a great idea for a party! I'm never as pleased with my front door in reality as I am with the one in my head.

I love the bee skep. It's completely unique and creative, and yes I DO like it with the succulents.

Hi Babs!

Bee skep plus succulents on a wreath? YES! I think it works beautifully!

It is absolutely adorable! I think things always work if you like the way they look. That's my opinion, anyway, & I think the bee skep & succulents are perfect.
