Decorating With Succulents

4 Materials
1 Hour

We love the succulent plants, and there are so many available today in the nurseries and faux succulents of many varieties in the craft stores. Here are a few ideas for decorating the patio or even the house with them. If you use real ones, be sure to include sand in the bottom of the containers for drainage. You don't want them sitting in water.

First gather your supplies. I chose white craft rocks, various containers of all sizes, sand, and a variety of succulents.

The more variety and color you add, the more interesting will be your decorations. So vary the textures, colors and then add the succulents.

Several plants with the colored sand and one small terra cotta pot in a flat, clear bowl with some white craft rocks sprinkled into the picture.

The marvel about decorating with succulents, you can use celebrations with planters to add variety throughout the year. This was for my Valentine.

More pots and plants add a little more eye appeal too. I liked the plants surrounded with white and the pots with the colored sand.

Turning the planter pots around and adding more white rocks also changes the look of the decoration.

This was my favorite one with the bowl, sand covered, and rocks with more succulents spread around. These were just some ideas I had to make a hutch decoration for our home. I had the materials for this project, but you may spend $10 or so, depending on what you have on hand and how many plants you buy. These were $1 each. I love the look of them on my built in hutch for winter display.
