Happy February, everyone! It’s Sarah of www.sadieseasongoods.com again, with a new upcycling project idea to share with you!
Who else (besides me) has tried to keep succulents alive but has absolutely zero luck? Well, the good news is that you can make felt succulents that will never, ever die on you! And your local Habitat Charlotte Region ReStore is full of potential “planters”, that are fun and quirky, as well. Perfect for creating your own soothing desktop garden, no matter how cold it is outside.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Mini muffin tin, cake pan, pie tin or other “planter” from the ReStore
- Felt in a variety of Earth-tone colors
- Hot glue gun
- Aquarium gravel
Take extra care when using your scissors to cut out the succulent leaves. And remember that hot glue is, well, HOT! Make sure you don’t touch the glue when it’s still soft and keep your fingers away from the hot top of your glue gun.
