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!
