We’ve seen it coming these last couple years: Succulents have become mainstream. No longer do they flourish in just terra cotta. They can be decorations, wall hangings, or even wreaths.
One idea that really caught my eye however, was the succulent ornaments.
The ones I came across were made of blown glass globes, and they were on the “pricier” side. So after some thought, I came up with a way to copy the look for less.
The time took to create my look: less than 20 minutes.
one plastic ornament from Michael’s Craft Store: price- $2.99
exacto knife (already owned)
potting soil (already owned)
succulents (I have a succulent garden, so I was able to take a few sproutings from a plant)
gravel (I scooped about 1/8 of a cup from my fish tank) You could also buy gravel at a gardening store.
Whether you end up hanging your creation on a Christmas tree, make several and stagger them from a window, or even wrap it up as a unique Christmas present…Be proud of your “green” design!
