Such a darling little plant, the perfect gift for Mother's day!
It only takes minutes to make!
Minus the paint drying time, it takes 15 minutes or less!
I walked into my thrift store and there was this perfect diamond patterned votive holder!
It was 50 cents and perfection.
Here's a DIY idea if you can't find one like mine...get any little
glass votive holder and use a hot glue gun to make a diamond pattern on it.
You will also need a little succulent that looks like the top of a pineapple.
This one is a Haworthia fasciata variegata.
I got it at home depot for less than $4.
This amazon one is similar!
I love Rust-Oleum Metallic bright gold!
(it's cheaper at a store, but it can be shipped too)
Put the votive holder down on a piece of paper or cardboard.
Mist the spray on the outside of the glass.
Wait 20 minutes and repeat the spraying.
These 2 coats were perfect for coverage!
It was a warm day and only took about 30 minutes to be ready to pot.
this is for the drainage.
Then gently pop the plant out of the pot.
I had to remove some of the excess soil.
Use a pencil eraser or something to press in around the succulent.
Keeping all those beautiful plant tentacles sticking up is imperative!
Succulents need water, but are still drought friendly.
Mist with a spray bottle each week.
Such an easy craft and makes a loving gift.
Add a tag with a clever pun or saying!
"You are a pineapple! You are sweet and wear a crown!"
