Step 1: Prepping
Components required to make Succulamp

We started with drilling into four of the existing eight holes on the floral craft ring to ensure that our four pendants made up of Cloth Covered Electrical Wire and Cord Grips easily fit through the opening.  Then, we painted the floral craft ring a dark forest green.

Step 2: Wiring Four Pendants

Next we altered our 5-port Canopy to become a 4-Port Canopy using our 1/4 IPS Cap Finial.  We do offer Custom Canopy production if you need a particular number of ports!

This step is where all the fun hangs out!  We took stylistic freedom with a random assortment of moss and succulents and super glued them to the floral craft ring.
Step 5: Assessing Pendant Lengths and Installation

Succulamp - DIY Holiday Project
We sandwiched the floral craft ring between our female and male cord grips and secured them with the set screw.  The pendant drop length is up to you, but we chose to have them drop roughly six inches from the craft ring.  Send us photos of your DIY Holiday Projects!
