Fun Little Succulent Display

My mom and I put together this fun little succulent display while she was visiting us last week. 


I love how it turned out so I thought I'd share. It was super easy and inexpensive. 


Start with any shaped glass container. I found mine at Homegoods which is the perfect place to hunt for  inexpensive glass containers. They carry all shapes and sizes.

Soak your moss in a small bowl or bucket of water and leave it there until it's soaked up most of the water. This will help it be pliable and easy to place in your container when you're ready for it. You can find moss at most craft stores. I usually buy mine at Joann's Fabrics.

Fill your container with rocks. I already had the larger neutral rocks and randomly found the white rocks at the checkout aisle in Homegoods. Seriously, what can't you find there!?! I love how the white rocks add a fun contrast. We did a layer of white rocks, then neutral rocks and another layer of white. 


Then you pop in your little succulents..placing them wherever you desire. My succulents are from a local nursery but you can also find them at Lowe's or Home Depot. However, I have found that our local nursery has a better selection. 

Next you will grab your moss from your bucket of water and place over dirt and in between the plants. Fill in any gaps with the moss. 



Voila! You have a fun little display! Mine has found it's happy home on our kitchen island. It fits perfectly behind the sink.  I want to make a terrarium next! I'll be sure to share that too. 

Hope you're having a great week!
