I’m not one of those girls who changes her purse with every outfit – Half the time I’m lucky to get out the door at all! But, I do love changing things up with a statement clutch bag now and then, particularly in animal print or a fun, bright floral. This lined floral clutch bag is not only perfect for such an occasion, but it also cost about $5 to make, and is a ridiculously easy project, without any sewing!

Teacup Succulent Planter

How to Make an Easy and Unique Tea Cup Succulent Planter

This simple, inexpensive DIY succulent planter project will be loved by everyone from mothers to teachers!  Perfect for all of Spring’s gift-giving occasions.

Unique Moss Covered Teacup Planter Idea for Succulents

April is the start of that time of year – Yes, folks, it’s birthday season – the time of year where five of the seven in our immediate family, and more in our extended family, have birthdays within a three-month timeframe. This year, to up the ante, it’s my husband 40th birthday. No pressure there, right?!

The kid’s various hobbies and activities are all coming to a close, meaning, oodles of end of year parties and recitals. Add Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation, Father’s Day, Memorial day, and you’ve got yourself a bona fide gift giving and activity frenzy. My calendar is FULL!

Thinking of all there is to do, the panic sets in – Suddenly, it’s as if I’m in a raft in the middle of the ocean. The merciless sun beats down, there is no wine water, and the sharks are circling, waiting for me to dip my big toe in so they can take a bite!

Need a quick and easy diy gift idea to keep you from swimming with the sharks

Of course, my hair wouldn’t look nearly that good if I truly was in the middle of the ocean, but you get the idea. Obviously, bowing out of some of these things would be easier on me but where is the fun in that? #inserteyerollhere

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Instead, I look for simple but unique, inexpensive gift ideas that have me looking like a gift-giving super-star for teachers, thank you and Mother’s Day gifts. The added (free) printable gift tags (for Mothers, sisters, friends, teachers and one for everyone else) make this gift multi-purpose!

SUPPLIES

DIY Moss Covered Succulent Teacup Planter

You will need:

A teacup and saucer
Glue gun
Moss sheets <affiliate link>
Scissors
Faux Succulent stems <this one, too>
Floral Foam
Floral Pins <affiliate>
Olive green pipe cleaners
Printable (optional)

HOW TO MAKE IT

  1. Use the glue gun to cover the tea cup with moss strips. I used a teacup from my Spring Tea Party – use and re-use! Glue the pieces over the edge of the teacup rim.  I wound an olive green pipe cleaner around the handle to enlarge it a bit, then covered the pipe cleaner with moss.
  2. Glue the moss onto the saucer. Cut the moss into pie shapes and work your way around the saucer. Cover the entire surface.
  3. Cut a piece of floral foam to fit the inside of the cup and place it inside, with a dot of hot glue on the bottom.
  4. Add the succulents – and any other plants you’ve gathered to compliment. I added faux wildflowers. For the non-succulent stems, I used the floral pins to affix the plants. Put the tip of the pin through the hole of the stem and press it into the foam. I stuck the succulents in where they fit the best.

KICK IT UP A NOTCH

To take your gift to the next level, add a ribbon and download a free set of gift tags – for your Mother, Sister, Friend, Teacher. Attach the tag to a straw or skewer and press the skewer into the foam. Yep. You’re a gift-giving superstar!
