Ever since my daughter chose to use succulents in her wedding, I have been in love with these beautiful, durable plants.
From bouquets, to planters, to the garden, even to the garden wall, their versatility makes them perfect for so many applications.
To add a splash of eclectic fun to my window, I recently used a colorful olive oil tin and re-purposed it into a sill sized planter. First I used a belt sander to grind off the top of the tin. Then using hot soapy water I cleaned the empty tin. Next, I punched a few holes into the bottom and filled it half way to the top with pea gravel, before filling it the rest of the way with a cactus potting mixture. Finally I added the succulents and finished by covering the soil with pea gravel.
Spread the love – plant some succulents!
