Make This Fun DIY Indoor Succulent Garden With Mini Lights

1 Hour
Since succulents remind me of the rocky landscaping in the Southwest and campers remind me of, well camping, I decided to go with a camping in the Southwest of the USA theme. To give the tray more visual appeal, I mixed a sheet of moss with pea gravel to make the terrain. I also mixed some very convincing fake succulents with a little pot of real ones. I also grabbed an aloe to give the tray a little height and because aloe’s are just awesome.

Prepping the tray
Mixing moss, pea gravel, rocks, and wood discs gives the tray lots of character.
Love that camper and little dog.
This Vintage VW Bus Birdhouse (aff) would be really cute too.
Check out this version I made with herbs and bird houses too (on Hometalk).
