Yesterday I did a guest blog post for Sweet Athena! These crafty and creative ladies have been best friends since middle school and always have a wide array of topics to blog about. Be sure to check them out and become fans on Facebook! Here’s my post..
I wanted to create an eye catching centerpiece for our new home that was also low maintenance. I seem to have a black thumb when it comes to flowers, so I went the simple route.. succulents and cacti! These are great if you’re a little bit forgetful when it comes to plants!
3 succulents and/or cacti
3 wine glasses at varying heights
River stones (found at most craft stores)
Add river stones to the bottoms of your wine glasses about ½” to 1” deep.
Add a small amount of potting soil, plant succulent or cactus, and fill in remaining area with soil, leaving about an inch of room from the top of the glass.
Add some river stones around the top to finish it off!
Give them direct sunlight every day for at least 5 or 6 hours and water every 2 weeks. After watering, there shouldn’t be more than an inch of water visible in the stones at the bottom.
