That New Year inspiration is still going strong and I can't stop cleaning, repurposing and planning. A friend of a friend gave me clay pots when she moved and I can't pass up a good donation. Two years later, they're still in my backyard collecting rainwater. So I'm putting them to use with some of that inspirational planning.
I have a weakness for succulents and especially love that I can grab a stem from a plant at any location and easily add it to my own collections! That makes them the perfect gift for the next hostess, birthday girl, or new homeowner.
After giving the pots a good cleaning, I grabbed materials around the house and started making these pots one-of-a-kind. Chalkboard paint is such a good option for gifts because the message can be altered at a moment's notice!!
Then I walked around the yard and snipped a few pieces of succulents and planted them in the pots. With enough water, sunshine and time, these succulents will fill the pots and I will have housewarming and hostess gifts on hand for months to come!
