Housewarming gift- succulent planterSeptember 08, 2014
Then, I added some potting soil. I mixed it with some of the soil the plants were growing in. (Pardon the super blown out photo! Oopsy!)
Then, I added the succulents! Make sure to give them space to spread. In the right lighting conditions, you'll see little mini succulents in no time!
I carefully centered the plastic planter inside of the painted terracotta pot and then filled in around it with pea gravel. You can find pea gravel in many different colors, so you can easily customize here too!
So that's it! Paint, plant, give! Easy peasy :) Instruct your newly home-owning friends to place near a sunny window, water once a week when the soil is dry, and enjoy!
I think I might make one for our own home after my succulent cuttings grow in!
Do you have any unique housewarming gift ideas? I don't always have time to make a gift, but I LOVE TO when I can, so I'm always looking for great creative ideas!
Anybody else obsessed with succulents?!?! I think they're just so stinkin' cute!
