Heart Shape Succulent Garden For Valentine’s Day

Happy Monday!   I’m here today to share a last-minute DIY project for Valentine’s Day – a Heart Shape Succulent Garden!   I used faux succulents because they are more affordable and I can’t kill a fake plant!!!  But, you could make a real succulent planter in a heart shape as well!   For a container, I used a wooden heart shape tray that I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot – for $5!   I added some floral foam cut to size and covered the foam with a combination of sheet moss and Spanish moss.  Then I started arranging the faux succulents.  I had to cut some of the succulent stems because they were too long for the depth of the wooden heart tray.  I found some realistic succulents at Michael’s craft store and some at one of my favorite local shops.   They were under $5 each.

When you pick out the succulents you want to use, try to choose different varieties and colors to add interest to the garden.  Even if you use all green colored succulents, make sure you vary the shades of green.

When I first glanced I had no idea this was going to be so user friendly!! I get so enthused about succulents but they don’t always survive. I think this idea would work well for my indoor displays!! Thank you for the ideas.
