Introducing the easiest DIY ever!

Succulents are beautiful and come in all colours, shapes and sizes.  They also happen to be user friendly and low maintenance– a definite PLUS for someone like me who is just barely keeping her plants alive…it’s a day-by-day thing.

If you can relate and feel like getting a little crafty today but don’t actually want to do much work, then this project is perfect for you.

First, you will need to get some nice, small succulents.  I have covered the North Shore looking for these and the best quality, selection and pricing is definitely at Dykoff Nurseries & Florist located at 460 Mountain Hwy.  Go to the very back room… it’s amazing.

Second, you will need some random things. These can be found at your local thrift store, garage sale or grandma’s house. Here, I found a vintage milk pour and sugar container that will work perfectly.  Other random items could be tea cups, whisky glasses, candle votives etc.  Literally, anything will do.

Now, fill the base of the random object with anything you want!  Here, I used a small white stone that I also got at Dykoff Nurseries but you could use sand, shells, diamonds… whatever you fancy.

Now, here comes the hardest part of the easiest DIY ever.  Placing the succulent in the random object can seem a bit daunting– I’m joking clearly, just shove it in there and wipe off the excess.  This is like cooking, it doesn’t have to be exact.

Now feel proud and stare at the amazing accomplishment you just achieved.  Snap a few shots and send to friends bragging how creative and talented you really are.

This one will go on my night stand so I can wake up to it every morning with a smile on my face.

This pretty one will go in my kitchen next to the sink.

And this one should probably be a gift, but it will likely end up on my patio… hey, I made it.
