DIY: Mini Succulent Garden

Aug 12, 2013

In an effort to add more plants to my life, this weekend I decided to add to my growing plant family. I chose small succulents and terra cotta planters and then added a touch of paint to dress it up. This was a super easy project! It will take you less than an hour to complete, and that’s only due to drying time. You can use any color you like. I chose Mother of Pearl from the Martha Stewart Crafts™ Pearl line. I thought the color would be more white, but it came out silver-ish on the terra cotta which I actually liked.

Once the paint was dry, I filled a third of the planters with potting soil. I loosed the roots of each succulent and placed them in the planters, and then added more soil to fill it. I watered the soil and let it drain. That’s it! Easy peasy!! Plus, the whole project was less than 20 bucks! You can’t beat that.

    Thank you!! I chose a variety of succulents. I can’t identify them all but a couple are sempervivum arachnoideum and tricolor jade. They’re very easy to care for and you can find them at any local plant nursery or even Walmart.
