Succulent Candlestick

Let’s create with succulents! Each student will choose their beautifully hand-carved candlestick and their succulents to create a topiary that they will design and fully customize. Melissa from Rusted Rabbitt will lead you through the process of distressing and using chalk paint in various shades on your wooden candlestick. Then, each candlestick topper will have your own topiary attached using moss and adorned with gorgeous succulents in an array of varieties and species. Dried flowers and other natural items will also be available to enhance this living topiary topper. These beautiful pieces of living decor can be easily maintained and will flourish with very little care. Melissa will provide instructions as well as take home literature on how to care for your arrangement.

All programs are subject to change.
