Faux potted succulents: DIY tutorial

Recently we have created a couple of faux potted succulents as a gift and decided to share this quick and easy DIY tutorial on the blog. What's great about them is they don't require sunlight or watering and are a perfect gift for anyone, especially people without a "green thumb" :).

Here is how-to:

Supplies

1. Faux succulents $2.99 each (we got ours at Target). Make sure to inspect them carefully and avoid the ones that look too plastic.

2. Wine corks

3. Glass container (old tea-light holders, bowls, anything will do)

4. Decorative rocks (IKEA or any other store)

4. Awl

STEP #1
