  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 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'm 6'3" tall, and am always working my way through a list of creative projects that's longer than myself. I have a natural curiosity for figuring out how things are made. Currently hooked on Fabletics, dried mango, succulents and my labradoodle. When I'm not blogging here, you can find me designing jewelry, concocting new fragrances for my bath & body shop, daydreaming about one day living on a flower farm, and sourcing and shipping your jewelry supplies.
