Teacup Succulents

Over the past couple years, I've grown to love succulents.  They add just the right amount of green to my house or yard, they are easy to grow and they are inexpensive.  But the best part is that you can break off a piece from an existing plant, and create a whole new plant.

I'm always on the lookout for any little thing to put succulents in.  On a recent trip to Home Goods, I found these teacups in the clearance section for $1.00 each.  I was so excited.  I immediately came home and started breaking off little pieces from my succulents outside.

I used a diamond drill bit and carefully drilled a drainage hole on the bottom of the cup.  I put small pebbles on the bottom, them filled the rest of the cup with cactus dirt and stuck in my succulent pieces.




I had all three cups done is just a few minutes.  I think these will make excellent hostess or teacher gifts at the end of the school year.
