    1. Before removing the succulents from their disposal plastic pots, water them thoroughly and let drain. This will keep the soil together when you remove from the pot and make it easy to place it into the can.
    2. Measure the height and circumference of the can, and trace onto the back side of your http://laparkan.com/buy-sildenafil/ specialty paper. Cut about 1/4″ excess on the circumference so that the paper overlaps and no part of the can shows.
    3. Cut the pieces out and glue with the Mod Podge onto the can.
    4. Let the glue dry.
    5. Remove succulents from pots and place them into empty cans.
    6. Place in direct sunlight and water every one to two weeks. (Do not overwater, succulents do *not* require a lot of hydration!)

    I am a lifelong New Yorker who recently swapped the subway for the California sunshine. I've learned the only way out is through--and tough stuff makes you a whole lot stronger. Currently hooked on self-care, kombucha, succulents and my labradoodle child. When I'm not writing here about mindfulness, wellness and encouraging you to be the bravest badass you know, I can be found designing gemstone jewelry, experimenting with new perfume notes, daydreaming about one day operating a flower farm, and spreading the Finnish spirit of sisu everywhere I go.
