Hello and welcome back to The Blog at Main Floral! We’re just poppin’ in quickly today to let you know that the succulents are fresh, in shop, super trendy, and beautiful right now! With Mother’s Day coming up–we thought we’d share a few ideas we’ve found regarding simple, diy, succulent projects that you can do on your own, or with the kids. They’re all easy enough to customize as needed, and they’re quick enough to get done this weekend. 🙂 We are here from 9-4 on Saturday and from 8-6 during the week, in case you’d like to stop by and pick up a few succulents to work with. Almost all of our individual ones are under 10 dollars, so Mother’s Day won’t break the bank, either. If you’re tempted to do this, but aren’t sure if you (or mom) can keep them alive–check out our blog with succulent care tips on it. (CLICK HERE.)
DIY Succulent Driftwood Planter
These can be so, easily, made with an old log from the backyard, or from a recent nature hike. The biggest trick is to make sure it is solid when sitting on a table–you don’t want it to tip easily. Also, succulents have shallow root systems so you don’t need anything too deep.
DIY Garden with Painted Mason Jar
Grab a couple, small, and different types of Succulents and put ’em in a jar. It’s easy, and adorable! If you’re creating more than one of these, you can easily customize them with a few, favorite, colors, too. We used some pieces of Christmas Cactus that had been rooting in water for the last couple of months.
Mini Planters from Wine Corks
So, for this one, if you don’t have corks, you can buy them from any craft store out there…OR, what WE suggest is to buy mom a couple bottles of her favorite wine along with little succulents, dirt, and magnets. Print, or write out, the directions for this project and then help her work on it (or just do it for her) when the wine is gone. It’s win/win!
Mini Succulent Garden
We have two ideas for this one–after all, you can plant succulents in almost anything! Tea cups, jars, pieces of wood, old pots, etc. They don’t need much room to spread. For one of these, we used some leaves we had been propagating, and are looking forward to watching them grow. 🙂 Both blogs have more ‘full’ photos on them.
Gnome/Fairy Garden Mini Succulent Garden
They say to use plastic succulent’s with this project–though, real ones work perfectly fine, too! If you’re looking for gnomes and/or fairy garden furniture–check out The Corner. It’s a great little shop right up Main Street from us. They have an amazing selection of stuff!
