Succulents are the hottest thing right now....at least in my area. Everywhere I go, succulents are potted in some of the cutest items. Even TJMaxx has succulents even if they aren't real.
So, I decided to pot up some succulents that I bought at Home Depot. My first idea was to use an aluminum ferris wheel that has three containers on it. I am going to take it to the Elgin High School Flea Market https://www.facebook.com/Elgin-High-School-Flea-Market-199348126756768/ on Sunday. (I'm in booth 195)
I also had a few other containers that would be perfect to hold the succulents. One was a silver plated cup and the other was a silver type trophy. The finishing touches were some pebbles from the dollar store. Simple containers that really make a statement.
One thing that I have been wanting to decorate with is a galvanized chicken feeder. The one I have has "feet" on it. I wanted to do something that Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper would love. Something that she might have thought of.
The chicken feeder is resting on a table in my space in front of a fabulous metal container holding a rose bush and gardening tools. The chicken feeder has two small pots of succulents and three votive candles. It would look so nice on a farm table. I have another one right now in my sunroom decorated the same way. I just love chicken feeders. They scream farmhouse decor!
I still have more succulents to pot up so now I'm on the hunt in my house for that perfect container. Maybe I'll use the rusty tool box that I drilled holes in to copy the planter in the newest issue of Flea Market Style magazine.
Happy treasure hunting!
