Garden art with succulents
Over at Craft Invaders, you’ll find a fun craft idea to beautify your garden. Create your own artistic, succulent planter using Houseleeks and Hen and Chicks succulents. This blogger loves them because they’re easy to maintain and come in various colors.
The base of the craft is a shallow, terracotta pot that will hold your succulent garden art. A second, smaller terracotta pot or a ceramic jug will lay on its side, half of it embedded into the rocks or other organic planting material that fills first terracotta pot. Then outdoor succulent plants will be arranged so that they look like they’re coming out of the small pot or jug. Check out the link for more details on how to arrange your succulent garden art.
