Succulents or Hens and Chickens
Hens or Chickens
By whatever name you call them they multiply...
The are so easy to grow.
Well I know so many of us are going stir crazy by now
waiting for spring to arrive...
I pulled out some of my pictures from
the rockery and noticed how my hens and chickens had
taken over.........Note to self....thin out succulents....
In many stores lately I have seen
them in mini pots for $3.99 each..
I came home and pulled out my peat pots,
card stock and my paints.....
Do you know where I'm going with this??????
Yes I made my own hens and chickens..
First I white washed the peat pots with white craft
Then I took out two green paints and some white craft paint and went about painting both sides of my card stock to resemble
the colour of my hens and chicks.
Once the paint was dry I cut out leaf shapes from larger
Rolled a piece of cardstock into a tube form and started
gluing my leaves on from large to small.
Once I had the look I wanted I added
some browns and creams
and a little purple to the edges
to resemble hens and chicks.
Dropped some moss into the pots and
sat my succulents on top.
They look pretty awesome!!
My costs $0000.......
What are you doing to help spring appear!!
Thanks for stopping by!
