If you have a black thumb but still want to have indoor plants, try these wine glass succulents.
There are several areas in my life I wish I was better at. Sewing, drawing, reading sheet music, just to name a few. But the one area I’m taking control of and getting better at this year is gardening. I really want to be able to cook with natural ingredients from our garden and have our home smell better with flowers and plants. But I definitely am going to need some help. I’ve killed every plant I’ve ever owned so I wanted to start with something easy to get my confidence up.
When I got wine glasses in my National Mom’s Nite Out package I figured what better way to start my gardening adventures than planting a succulent in them like I’d seen in mason jars, vases and terrariums. So I talked to my friend whose family runs Western Gardens to make sure they were safe to plant in wine glasses and she said as long as there were rocks of some sort in the bottom then you were good.
So I gathered all my materials and set everything up for the party. Everyone had a blast making these and they have held up really well. And all you have to do to keep these beauties alive is spray them with a spray bottle a few times a week. Easy peasy right?! Plus they are super affordable; to make twelve of these I only spent about $45 (which is less than $4/plant). So gather your supplies and prepare to add a little bit of natural beauty to your home.
