Get Crafty with Succulents!With the hot days of Summer going strong, why not grab some heat-loving plants to get crafty with?! With such a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, succulents are the perfect living things to make art out of!!
From wreaths and home decor ideas to party favors, these colorful plants are perfect to use in a myriad of ways! The best part?? If you don't have quite the "green thumb", these are your go-to plants! They're easy to maintain (and keep alive), and are very sturdy when used in a decorative craft! These are SO MANY ways to use these plants to create live art! You can check out Pinterest for a ton of ideas, as well!
There are a lot of incredible ways to use these beautiful living things! We really like the idea of using them as centerpieces (rustic wedding, anyone?) and incorporating them into the decor! The suggestion of using some stamped, white-clay pots or painted terra-cotta planters is brilliant!
One of our favorites, hands down, is the succulent wreath! It's absolutely stunning and would be an incredible statement, hanging on the front door, over a window, or some other highly-visible, well-lit space!
