Hey there! I am back to share a simple gardening project with succulents that is as easy as getting your hands dirty!
Succulents are a favorite of mine. And they are not for the outdoors only.
They have a meaty/chunky/fleshy texture to them and…..
interesting colors and…….
And don’t be surprised if some types make your eyes go buggy……
Can’t take your eyes off of it can you? Is it driving you nuts? The rest of the tutorial is much easier on the eyes.
To start, I gathered a few succulents from a local garden shop. I am amazed at the varieties available. I also found a cute little ceramic egg crate at TJ Maxx. I thought it would make a very unique planter.
Here are a few of the plants I incorporated into the vignette.
When removing each plant from the pot, lightly remove some of the dirt so that it will fit into the desired opening.
Great tip I learned……
use the cardboard tray given to you at the garden center as your prep space. It provides easy clean up if you are creating the project on a countertop or table surface.
Oh, and I almost forgot…this pretty little specimen….
and finished in a vintage white container….
Here is my succulent vignette a few months after being planted.
Overall, the container is doing very well. I have even propagated a few of the pieces from the above plant. It was easy peasy…snip off and stuff into the dirt!
Hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial. I am kinda snickering a little though….
….did I trick you? With what you ask?
Did you notice the faux succulent? Bonus points if you comment on which is the faux version!
