Hello friends! Today we have a quick blog about making cute little succulent decorations! My hope is to have the final part of the dollhouse blog in the next two weeks for you guys. Sorry that is taking so long!
So as I mentioned, today we are talking succulents. They are adorable and everyone loves them. I do love to have plants but for succulents I prefer fake ones that can be moved around, put away during the off season and, most importantly, don't die. Since succulents are so popular, fake ones can be found at basically every store on the planet. But often they are stupidly expensive. So for today's craft we started at my favorite place: The Dollar Store. I was able to pick up a few of these little potted succulents, each a dollar.
I have some beautiful Harry Potter teacups that my cousin gave to me which I had as decoration on a shelf in our living room and thought that they would be perfect for holding little succulents. All I needed for this quick craft was the succulents, the teacups and some small rocks. I started by pulling the succulents out of the small plastic pots they were in which was very easy as they were just stuck into some Styrofoam.
All I had to do was place some rocks in the teacups and add in the succulent pieces. Literally its that easy. For extra decorative fun I also added some sea glass I have collected over the years around the cup in the saucer.
Another thing to do with these Dollar Store succulents is to simply decorate them in the small pot that they come in. I did this to a few of them and just used whatever decorations I had on hand, including some more of those rocks I used in the teacups. Some hot glue and small decorations can really make a difference!
See what I mean? I hot glued some rocks inside the pot to cover up the Styrofoam and then added some twine and button accents. That's all it takes to give these little succulents a facelift!
I hope you enjoyed today's quick little blog. I am interested in getting started on another video sometime soon. Any suggestions? Leave them in the comments below!
