Succulents for Mother's Day

by Anna Ibarra
I saw about doing these terrines with succulents for gifts. So I decided these would be my gifts for Mother's Day.
I went to Lowes to get some supplies for the project, then I was just about to head to a nursery for the succulents, when I spotted a cart full of clearance priced succulents. All mini for $1. (4 mini potted) and so I got a loot and decided I can save on this part that would have costed me so much. After all it is the thought that counts.
I headed to GoodWill to find several vessels.
I decided to glue these together so it can have some presence after I'm done.
I"ve had this vase that has that brass base and have use it for many things.
This a cute dessert dish. I added more rock to look prettier.
Here's is the one that I glued the base to the bowl vase.
A 3 tier candy dish, not sure how long it will hold but it is just for presence.
All together.
These were also at a $1. each. The terra cotta pot alone would have cost more at some places.
This is such a cute glass like terra cotta pot, and I added a stand to it.
It looks like i'm serving succulents for lunch. :-)
