DIY Succulents

For the wedding we used a lot of beautiful succulents as centerpieces… i’ve always been a sucker for them and i figured i could keep using them after the wedding! For those of you that know me at all know that i have no green thumb whatsoever (especially after reading this post). BUT thats the great things about succulents… they are much harder to kill. Though i will still be surprised if they last till spring. I have definitely enjoyed having them throughout the apartment though!

Aren’t they beautiful?! I love the mixture of the green succulents with the blue and teal tea light holders from West Elm. These guys are SO cute and i have more in our bedroom with the Violet glass as well. The picture below is from West Elms site (such a cute picture, huh?!) Anyway, LOVE all the colors.

I also have the table runners from the wedding covering my whole desk… Love it!

Anyway, below are some awesome DIY projects that you can do with succulents. They are clingly little plants that are very versitile and grow just as well sideways as straight up. You can also trim a few leaves off and replant it to grow a whole new succulent!
