My 30 minute project for this weekend: succulent planters. Very simple, fun and quite relaxing.
I took a trip to Lowe’s to buy 3 small pots of succulents. Each pot cost $3.95 . I also bought a bag of cactus mix which was about $6.00 for a big bag. I used glass vases and mugs that I already have in my home (collecting dust inside my cabinets) as my planters. What a way to re-use!
I wanted my three succulents to be different shades. I think it looks more put together. I like how the orange-red pops! I had my son shovel the cactus mix in first. He enjoyed doing that. Boys and dirt? They just go together. Then I carefully took a little part of each plant, making sure to keep the root intact, and placed it in the cactus mix. Make sure that the roots are covered with dirt.
The finished product! And it only took 30 minutes. I was able to re-pot 4 planters (i.e. mugs and glass vases).
This mug set was a Christmas gift from my daughter… I love it… Thank you, Sabrina! It was her idea to plant the succulents in the mug. I think it looks fantastic!
This one is my son, Joshua’s favorite one. Probably because he was able to put the most dirt in it and he was the one who planted the succulents.
I’m placing all my planters near the window so that they get a lot of sun!
