Easy Succulent Garden DIY – Perfect for a Tea Party!
I’m not sure about you, but I I often fall victim of the winter blues. I’m more of a “sunshine-on-my-face, and toes-in-the-sand” kind of gal. Living in Indianapolis, Indiana there isn’t much of that going on, especially in the winter months. As a result, most outdoor activities shut down, and it’s all about bringing the outside in.
This easy succulent garden project is the perfect way to bring nature inside! As most of you know, I’m a lover of all things Snapple®. Therefore, I made sure my succulent garden had a little bit of my own personality in it as well. In this step-by-step tutorial you will see photos of how I made my own succulent garden, but feel free to make yours unique. I wanted my garden to look relaxing and dreamy. Somewhat of a perfect day. I included a nice tree for shade, a little table for one, and a lovely cup of Snapple from Walmart! The only thing I missed out on was a good book to read. I might just have to add that later on.
Here is your step-by-step guide to making an easy succulent garden that’s perfect for a tea party:
Here’s what you need:
- A glass bowl I found at a thrift store for $1.99
- Candlestick holder from the dollar store
- Rocks and moss from the dollar store
- Doll table and chair set from the dollar store
- Tree and metal bike I found at a craft store
- Succulents of choice – I found mine at Walmart
First, I glued the base of the candlestick to the bottom of the glass bowl. This helps give the entire project some height. I liked the idea of it being raised, as it gives it a bit more character.
To attach the two glass pieces, I used E600 craft glue and then used hot glue around the edges for added reinforcement.
Once the glue was completely dry, I added a layer of rocks. You don’t have to use rocks, but I really like the layered look with the glass.
The dirt layer went next! The dirt needs to be spread evenly so the succulents can thrive.
Next comes the planting. I arranged my succulents how I wanted them to appear. Granted, I moved them three or four times before I got them exactly the way I wanted them. I finally just planted them along the edge to save room for my other decorations.
Once my plants were secure I started to decorate.
Since my tree was the biggest decoration, I added it first. This set the scene for the rest of the layout.
I added each piece, adjusting them as I went.
The only thing I glued down was the table (which I painted with silver acrylic paint) so the tea pot and cup would sit flat. Once everything was in place, I stuck it on my desk, which is where I spend most of my time.
To reward myself for doing such a pleasing job on this easy succulent garden, I headed over to Walmart to pick up some of my favorite Snapple flavors. Lucky for me (and you) the 64oz sizes are on Rollback 3/$5 until 4/27. Who doesn’t love to save money? Especially when it’s on your favorite things! I just love the Diet Peach Tea Diet Snapple. It’s so smooth and full of flavor!
Diet Peach Tea Diet Snapple is my perfect working companion. It’s a great feeling to close my laptop, take a few sips of my Snapple tea, and venture into my own imagination. Always wondering what it would be like sitting under that very tree. A girl can dream, right? Nothing like taking a moment to yourself to refresh and rejuvenate.
If you’re a lover of tea like me or you just need a moment to refresh, be sure to head over to Walmart to grab a few bottles of Snapple Kiwi Strawberry, Peach, and Diet Peach!
