[so cheap, so easy]: Neon & Gold Succulents

How great are these little pots of pure delight? I know...they are amazing. (I could not, for the life of me, find the original source for these, so if you know, please tell.) Now, I will be the first to admit that I am scared of anything green and living. I mean, the responsibility is daunting, but, I think I may try my hand at succulents or cacti. Plus, Stella asked me what Earth Day was, so I feel like this might be a nice, easy project for her that is totally awesome for me. Just spray paint your pot, plant your succulents, and add your aquarium rocks.  According to my calculations, this project should run right around $25, with the succulents being the majority of the cost (around $16 for a three pack from the Depot). If you know a better, cheaper place to get them, let us all know. I am definitely the last person on earth to give advice on anything that has to do with planting stuff.  Shoes? Clothes? Decor? I'm your girl. Green things? Not so much.

  1. How pretty! I don't have much of a green thumb, but this looks like a great project.

  2. Love the bright colors! This actually gives me a great idea for the four-year old's next birthday party.

  3. Oh my goodness, I NEED to make these immediately! I love succulents and I have a bunch that I need to re-pot, so I'm totally using this idea...thanks for the inspiration!
