Succulents are all the rage right now! Learn how to turn old, thrifted tea cups into modern, minimalist succulent planters! Enjoy!
Now, take the other cup and paint the inside with that same pop of color.


Once the inside dries, draw another design on the outside of the cup.


Fill the cups up with the sand and place your faux succulents inside.


And you're all done!
For this project you will need some thrifted tea cups, sander block, various colors, permanent marker, sand, faux succulents, paint brushes, white spray paint, and painters tape.
Sand the tea cups so the spray paint sticks better.
Spray paint the insides and outsides of the tea cup.
Taking 1 tea cup, make scattered dots on the inside of the cup.
Then paint the handle with your pop of color.
Now, take the other cup and paint the inside with that same pop of color.
Once the inside dries, draw another design on the outside of the cup.
Fill the cups up with the sand and place your faux succulents inside.
And you're all done!
