I just bought a bunch of plants for my front yard- stay tuned for a make over soon! In the mean time, here is some teeny tiny gardening- I am going to make what I like to call a succulent bonsai! (of course it’s a succulent what else would it be?) :)
I was inspired when I saw these fatty corks at the thrift store and got them all for a buck- I didn’t know what to make at the time- but I woke up this morning and it hit me!
Start by drilling the center of your cork out, I did this over a trash can because it will get messy with cork bits flying! Be sure to not go all the way through the cork, just a few centimeters above the base. If you want a wider lip than “stir” your drill around in the cork like you would a spoon in a bowl, widening the lip.
Now to garden, add a bit (i mean a bit!) of soil and then plant succulent
These would be adorable on a window will, on a shelf, as a table setting, as party or wedding favor, a magnet, or a simple gift!
I love bringing the outdoors inside my home!
The possibilities are endless :) So cute!!!
- Drill bit that will fit a plant but also not bigger than cork (I used 1/2")
- Moist potting soil
