I have been wanting to do something with succulents ever since I took a class on them, and now that I have, I love it – so cute!!
I had the opportunity to try out some of the awesome things out of the David Tutera Casual Elegance line – wowza! The Casual Elegance collection is designed and located under bridal, but can be used so so much more. The possibilities are endless! Here’s a view of some of the great products – paper straws, burlap flowers, tags and lace and so much more:
So much crafting potential, wedding or otherwise. For weddings you have tons of simple accents add an easy, vintage spirit and you will have wedding day accessories that coordinate with any color scheme. You can add personalized details with the look of handmade. The line is available exclusively at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and like I said, has such great crafting potential. Such as my Mini Succulent Hanging Garden:
Here’s how I made it – – you’ll need the burplap strip, lace strip, and mini buckets, all from the David Tutera Casual Elegance Line. You’ll also need a scrap board, nails, some succulents and dirt.
First step, wrap the burlap around the board. I used hot glue to secure it in a few spots but it didn’t need much glue:
Then, I wrapped one piece of lace around the other way and secured it in the back with hot glue. The lace is a little off-center to make it more visually appealing.
I predrilled spots for my nails because I always hammer them in crooked if I don’t. I even measured so that the nails are evenly spaced:
If you want to hang the board, you’ll need some picture hangers to attach to the back. I didn’t have any so I ended up setting mine on my porch table. That worked great too.
Next up you’ll need to prep your pots. It was a better deal to buy a pot with several succulents in it and replant them than it was to buy them individually.
To pot them, I put a few small rocks in the bottom of each bucket, then put the plant in and filled in around the roots with dirt.
That’s it! find the perfect spot and enjoy your hanging succulents:
Have you ever worked with succulents?? I think I’m hooked!! And I loved combining them with the David Tutera Casual Elegance line – the neutrals of burlap and lace really brought out the rich green in the succulents – they balanced each other perfectly. And here’s a picture of my 6 year old with the mini buckets so you can get a reference on their size:
