Plants always make the perfect gift for mom! Not only are succulents a charming room accent, they are extremely popular so it’s nearly impossible to go wrong. Today, we are making it easy on all the mama’s out there by using a faux succulent. Yup, that means no upkeep! Even better! However, if you would like, totally feel free to use an authentic succulent or air plant. Let’s get started!

What you will need:

  1. Glass terrarium (can be found at local craft store or home goods store)
  2. Pebbles
  3. Faux succulent

Begin by putting a light layer of pebbles at the bottom of the terrarium.

Next, wiggle in the succulent.

Once placed perfectly centered, pour in the rest of the pebbles to surround the plant.

How simple and beautiful! Who wouldn’t want to gift this? I almost want to keep it for myself 😉

Set in the window sill, on a desk or anywhere else in any home!

For the final touch, add a tag for Mother’s Day! We made ours with some scrap cardboard and jute.

Perfect room decor! Happy Mother’s day!

If you’re anything like me, you drink A LOT of coffee! I noticed that  I was going through so many cans. So, I decided to do a little craft and recycle my empty coffee cans. Why not make something beautiful out of them? I thought about it and I am also always needing new pots for all my plants. Well, these make for the perfect planter. You just need a few supplies to turn this empty coffee can, into an adorable planter.

What you will need: 

  1. Empty coffee can
  2. Hot glue gun + glue
  3. Jute
  4. White spray paint

Start by totally cleaning out your coffee can + removing the label. Then lay out newspaper or craft paper outside + spray paint it!

Once totally covered, let dry for about 15 min!

Next step: add a dab of hot glue in the back of the can. Start there and secure the first end of the jute. Once the glue has dried, begin to wrap the jute all the way around the top of the can. We went all the way down until we reached the next groove in the can. Then glue that end.

Do the same steps to the bottom section.

This is what it should look like when all the jute has been added.
