Don’t you love a quick project with great results for minimal effort? Other than the time spent at Hobby lobby picking up supplies, this entire project took roughly 30 minutes and created 4 potted succulent gardens. That’s my kind of project!
I had 4 containers that were waiting to be used ~ the unfortunate results of a black thumb period a while back. And I’ve enjoyed the succulent planter I created for the downstairs powder room, so decided to do a few others for the upstairs craft room.
Here’s how it started ~ faux succulent plants, river rocks, sand, and a few different pots and containers. I layered sand and rocks in the glass and pots, trimmed the plant stems as needed for height, and stuck them in the containers with a few shells for added interest. Easy, peasy!
Here’s how they turned out. The pots are placed around on the furniture pieces we’ve refinishd ~ and just completed! More on that project in a separate post!
Even live succulent plants look a little artificial to me, so I don’t mind the faux ones at all. And no worries about another period of black thumb!
I really like the colors in this one, and how it looks in the jumbo margarita glass.
I was really pleased with this project and it added a nice bit of organic color to the tablescapes. I’ll share the furniture refinish project soon ~ it was the total opposite of this project ~ lots of effort and a long time to complete, but we love the results!
In the meantime, I’m happy having a few completed projects to enjoy on this long holiday weekend. Hope you are ready for summer!
