Succulent Bowl

Here’s an easy project for your home- a cute little bowl of succulents.

I just love succulents. I think its their fleshy, geometric shaped leaves and the fact that they are easy to care for. I’ve been lusting after miniature ones for a while since I discovered The Sill on Instagram- I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve searched mini succlent on Google to find something similar this side of the Atlantic. So, when I came across these mini plants in my local Homebase, I knew they were a must have.

When I bought them, I had the idea of using them to fill our selection of vintage shot glasses but when I got back to the kitchen I discovered that they weren’t as tiny as I’d thought- there was no way they were fitting in! Instead, when grouped with a cutting from one of my existing succulents, they were the perfect fit for this beautiful sugar bowl I’d found for 40p at the local Car Boot in perfect condition. They’ve been living happily on my coffee table since.
