DIY SEASHELL SUCCULENT GARDEN

DIY SUCCULENTS IN A SHELL

HOW THE IDEA CAME ABOUT

A few years ago while working in a boutique, I purchased this beautiful clamshell. I used it to hold my jewelry for years and finally decided to give it a new life when I discovered these sweet little baby succulents at Home Depot.

I’ve seen where many have used bright colored seagrass and shells as topping for a succulent planter, but I wanted to keep it neutral so I went with tan, white, and brown colored sea glass that I found at Michael’s and chips of iridescent shells normally used as vase fillers.

Once I had all my ingredients I quickly put together one of my favorite little planters and added a bit of greenery to my guest room/office space. This DIY project was so simple a child could do it! I’ll explain exactly how it did this for you below.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

DIRECTIONS

Add a small bit of potting soil to the bottom of the clamshell. Take your finger and poke a hole in the dirt to place the succulent in the soil. Continue to plant the rest of your succulents until you are happy with the placement of all the plants.

Once planted, add a small amount of water to the soil to get it damp. Place sea glass strategically on top of the soil to cover it and sprinkle some shell chips all around the sea glass and in any small areas of soil that are exposed. That’s it!

  • Just for the record... I wasn’t always good with plants. In fact, I’ve even killed a few over the years (hey nobody’s perfect), but I wanted to learn and was up for the task. Once I had my mind set on it, I started looking at them in a whole different way. For example: I started feeling guilty when I noticed they were not doing well and instead of treating them like another chore, I started treating them like another pet that needed my nurture and care in order to survive because they can’t feed themselves. For me THAT was the turning point and I think that this whole process has taught me a lot about myself as well as how to be more passionate when caring for others. So I guess you could say we “GREW” together! 🌿 Also, there is something to be said when you notice a new leaf or bloom sprouting from your handy work. It’s very rewarding! ❤️ Have you tried the house plant challenge?

  • Sundays are for self-care and slow living... 🌿

Made this super easy succulent planter out of a seashell today because I needed to do something that sparked joy! (DIY is on the blog) •
Sometimes I get so caught up in the hustle from day to day that I forget to take care of my needs, my mind, and myself. Today do something for you and give yourself a break because you’re not a robot and you deserve it! P.S. if you feel like doing a little shopping for yourself, I’ve linked this bag and earrings in my stories 😉
