If you haven’t noticed, succulents are really in right now. There are even stores having succulent parties to pick your containers and plant them right at the store.
I do like them and although it is really tough to kill a succulent, I can do it. This real one sat in my Mom’s condo unattended when she was in the nursing home for over a year and was fine and healthy. When she passed away I took it home and now it looks like this.
So I went to Plan B. The fake succulents are so incredibly real that I knew they were for me! I wasn’t too crazy about the typical glass terrarium containers I was seeing everywhere so I looked around my house to see what I had that I wasn’t using. I came upon this candle holder and I had a light bulb moment.
This is what it looks like now and it sits in the window of my sunny porch and it looks so real!
I decided to incorporate the same idea into some of the home staging that I do and here is what I came up with.
This is an aerial view of one that I was experimenting with in my warehouse…the price tags still on. 🙂 I re-purposed a wooden bread bowl as the container.
Here it is on a foyer table:
This is another candle holder that I had that I also re-purposed:
A simple rustic tin with one succulent adds a nice end table accent:
If you are like me and can kill even a succulent plant, try these options by re-purposing items in your home for the container. They really are eye catching!
