10 Incredible Ideas for Decorating with Succulents

Remember on Monday when I talked about launching a new series called the Friday Round-Up? {Yeah, whatever. Don’t judge me.} Well, today I am actually sharing a Friday Round-Up post ON FRIDAY! 

Yeah, it’s a big day. 

I have a thing for succulents. I’m kinda obsessed. I don’t know what it is about them, but I think they are just about perfect. They’re so cute and compact and beautiful… and unlike every other plant on Earth, I can actually keep them alive. Win. 

At the Penn State Arboretum, there’s a garden kaleidoscope that points at a giant planted filled with succulents. It is one of my favorite things in the world — I could sit and stare into that thing for hours.

So when I was at a flea market last weekend and found an old feeder, I immediately knew I was going to get it and fill it with succulents.

I might actually keel over at the cuteness of this succulent in a pumpkin from Aniko at Place of My Taste. She just took a little foam pumpkin, hollowed it out, hit it with some spray paint and slapped a succulent in there. I mean, come on. Love.

Holy. Hell. I can honestly say that as long as I live, I never would have thought you could use living succulents as jewelry, but Adrienne from Crafty Little Gnome proved me wrong. Just use a little floral glue, and when you’re done with it, you can plant it! What?!? Mind blown.

When I first saw this photo, I thought it was a white cake with drippy black icing down the sides. And while that would be amazing, when I found out it was actually a planter that started its life as a tin can, I could hardly believe it. See how Rachel made these over at Lines Across.

Finally, if you still really don’t think you can keep a succulent alive, try making a felt succulent. Layla from The Lettered Cottage shows you how to do it. It’s a lot of cutting, but if you consider that it will last forever, I think it’s totally worth it. 

 

So there you have it. I personally want to do every single one of these — which is your favorite? Are you a succulent killer like me, or can you keep them alive? What are your favorite ways of displaying them?
