Jumping on the Bandwagon…
I did it. I bought a succulent. Now for someone who really doesn’t have a green thumb, I figured this is something I could easily keep alive since there is really no up keep on one of these bad boys.
I have been seeing succulents everywhere, Pinterest, blogs, magazines, etc… and I knew sooner or later I would need to welcome one into our home.
I found this guy in our local Ace Hardware and as soon as I saw him (I was eating hummus at the restaurant next door), I quickly put my pita chip down and tried to go rescue him from his lonely existence on the shelf. Alas, the store had just closed but I patiently waited till the next day to go back and to my luck, he was still there.
After bringing him home, I searched for a worthy container to let this guy sit in. It was so easy to re-pot and jazz it up.
I had this silver dish lying around from my great grandmother and it wasn’t doing anything, so I figured it would be a great dish for my new buddy.
Here is what I did!
- A silver dish
- A succulent
- Washi Tape/ Lace Scrapbook Tape
- A piece of Velvet Ribbon (not pictured)
- A piece of Twine
It was really easy to repot the succulent. For a really good tutorial, read this one here from the blog, The Goods
I used a little bit of water to pat the soil down and make sure the succulent was positioned where I wanted it.
With my two toothpicks and some washi and scrapbook tape, I made some bunting to add a little love. I tied the piece of twine to the toothpicks and cut pieces of tape, wrapped it around the twine and cut the silver pieces into triangles.
I found a piece of stray velvet ribbon I had leftover from another project and tied it around the bottom because, well, I love a good ribbon.
And the final image! O, So Pretty!
Are you jumping on the bandwagon too?
