My Mini Succulent Garden I Made as a Gift for a Neighbor.


It was our friends anniversary and I had nothing for a gift so I rushed around and remembered I bought this little birdhouse from Dollar General for $2. and I have a bunch of succulents in my garden and I got to work. Step by step photos
This dirty planter bottom has been in my yard for years collecting dust and mold. Took a lot to clean it up. Still looked yucky so I grabbed the spray paint.
Next was embellishments for the mini garden. I had some wire and some old ties so I made a small table and chair for the little camping trailer/ birdhouse.
Its my first time making wire furniture. So It turned out ok, I was rushed to get this done. Once I put it all together it look cute.
Collected some rocks and potting soil and placed everything where I wanted it.
Ta Da! Gave it to my friends and they loved it. Thanks for letting me share.

    Don't succulents need drainage? I wasn't sure if there was any in this pot?

      PS. If you want to root from a slip, you can put them in water or just leave to dry on the counter for three days and they will root very fast. PPS. And I have a brown thumb! 😄

    What kind of paint did you use. I have sprayed those before and it still got mold on them
