DIY Succulent Planter

Here is one thing I think we can all agree on… Succulents don’t suck! I just can’t get enough of these little guys right now!  Everywhere I look there they are, beckoning me with their colorful, fresh, and organic character.  And because they come in a variety of shapes and colors, it makes it that more fun to create your own expressive planter!   Additionally,  they don’t require a lot of attention.  Which is great, since I tend to forget to water things…sorry… Read more »
