Sweet Succulent Garden

please welcome back...

I don't know about you, but I am so completely over winter.

Even though we technically have to wait another 20 something days until spring, bringing a little green into our home always makes me feel better...like spring may actually be around the corner.

Making a succulent garden is easy and low maintenance....perfect for those of us with black thumbs!

And with a little extra dolling up, they also make for charming birthday/housewarming/teacher/you name it gifts.

For this garden, I used a pot I bought at Ikea and three small succulents I bought at Home Depot.  The total cost was less than $15.

For simple decorations, I made a flag from washi tape and a bow from a scrap of aqua fabric.  I attached both to long wooden skewers. {Found in the kitchen gadget aisle at the grocery store.}

I made the birthday flag in my word processing program and then printed it onto kraft cardstock, trimming it into a flag shape and punching holes so I could thread the skewer through it.

I also added the tiny deer for a little extra whimsy.  I bought him at the craft store.

And in case you couldn't already tell...I really love the simplicity of succulents...{I've shared other succulent terrarium projects here and here}...and I really like how this little garden turned out too!
