My latest little DIY garden craft... a 'succulent' teacup!

teacup plants diy craft succulents garden

Succulents are very easy to care for plants. They can be found at pretty much any garden centre, often by the name of "hens & chicks." Hens & Chicks are available in a wide range of beautiful colours!!!

To Create this cute little teacup project, line the bottom of an old teacup with some small rocks (succulents like good drainage).

Fill the teacup with a sand & soil mixture, add the plants (These plants are not particularly picky about their soil!!!)

Top with your teacup some a few pieces of broken pottery and ta-da!!!

Succulents come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes but all are super easy to care for. They need little water; when you do water, avoid splashing the leaves.
