Diy Succulent Gift

5 dollar gift 041

 Easy peasy gift, I’m serious.

And YES, that does say 5 dollars :)

So to make this easy little gift, all you need are some paints, a small clay pot, and a succulent + dirt.

I got my succulent at Home Depot for $4.28 :) How exciting is that?! The pot was only $0.78 too

First thing is first, paint the pot. You can do all sorts of colors…anything you like, er uh, what your mother likes.

I painted mine black (but I guess you can see that can’t you? heehee)

I also wanted to give mine a little bit of a modern look with that adorable black & gold color. To do this, just tape off a section of area with masking tape,

and paint it another coordinating color. In my case, gold!

Add just a teeny bit more detail to the pot by adding something to the top. I dipped Q-tips into my gold paint and went CRAZY :) (which isn’t that hard for me to do)

Replant that cute little fella into his (or her) new pot and BAM!

An adorable lil’ gift for any momma.

And the best thing is these lil’ plants don’t need a lot of care. I recommend doing a bit of research to know how much water they need and such, but other than that, this is a great shelf or coffee table plant.

I love you mom!
