Tiny Succulent Terrariums

Learn how to make these sweet table settings for the holidays. They're the perfect take home gift for your holiday guests.
Succulents snipping are very easy to root in soil. Small clipping were taken from the "mother" plants.
A peek inside each reveals a small pebble floor and a colorful array of succulents. Each succulent is so pretty, but when combining an array of colors, leaf shapes and heights. Can you tell that I am pretty much addicted to succulents?
I made tiny little wooden bases for these terrariums to perch upon. This entire craft came together in a day (including drying time). It's a family friendly gardening craft too. It's fun to get the kids involved with making gifts from the family.

    This looks so cute. However, where do I find the succulents? I don't own any of these and can you just snip off part of the succulent to put in the dirt? Written instructions would be great along withe the pictures.

    I found that if you leave the plants until the soil is bone dry and then water them, mine continue to thrive. I water mine about every 2 weeks or so and do not put them in direct sunlight. I hope this helps for all of you who keep killing your succulents. :-)
