With Christmas just around the corner I really need to get my proverbial butt into gear and start making some gifts. I’m not a big fan of how commercial Christmas has become, as the Grinch said “What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?” These succulent wine glasses are classy, don’t cost a lot and will carry on giving as the little baby plant grows. Oooooo and a succulent wine glass sounds so seductive 😎
What you need to make succulent wine glass
What you need to make these succulent wine glasses:
- Wine glasses (I got these from Mr P home for about R25.00. They have glasses in all shapes and sizes)
- Coarse river sand
- Potting soil
- Succulent off cuts
- Rust-Oleum multicolor textured spray paint
- Beads and baubles to make pretty
Using a plastic bag and some masking tape mask the wine glass so that only a piece of the glass stem shows.
Spray the bottoms of the wine glass with Rust-Oleum and wait for the paint to dry. I found this one took a bit longer than their other spray paints so just be patient. Once they’re dry add 3 table spoons of potting soil and then three table spoons of coarse river sand. Plant the succulent off cuts in the mix and give her a few drops of water.
Add a heart or other decorative bits you have lying around to the stem. A perfect Christmas gift from the heart – a succulent wine glass.
I love succulents, they are some of the easiest plants to care for. This little one will soon out grow her wine glass and make many, many babies to enjoy and replant.
P.S These make great table decorations to.
