Having two blogs is like having two toddlers running around the house; trying to spend quality time with one of them and feeling like I’m neglecting the other one produces a lot of stress!
Hmmm, maybe that’s why I only had one human child—because I didn’t have to worry about dividing my time or attention, he didn’t have to share me.
I was getting my nasty gray roots touched up at the salon and saw the cutest little planter at everyone’s station — I couldn’t wait to get home and recreate it.
It’s so easy and didn’t cost a penny, which is the best kind of DIY, am I right?
What you need:
- Potting soil
- Succulent (taken from a larger plant in the garden)
Seriously, it took about five minutes start to finish.
Fill the shell with damp soil, insert the plant, water again gently, and that’s IT. I know you’re supposed to let a succulent sit around for a few days to callous before you plant it, but I didn’t because I’m too impatient.
It’s so easy and SO adorable. I used a very small seashell, only about three inches long.
Not only is it great for someone (like me) with a lot of allergies, but how about as…
- Housewarming gift
- Hostess gift (along with a bottle of wine, of course)
- Place settings
- Wedding favors
- Easy-to-do craft with children of all ages
