SO cute and fun right!?
They had them at a few of the Street of Dreams houses that I loved
BUT my inspiration came from my friend we stayed with in Santa Barbara:
(my fail: getting a cute container but bottom it too narrow)
2. River Rocks
3. Plant Charcoal
(my fail: went to 200 stores before I found this- if you live in Portland, Cornell Farms has it)
(my fail: for my container I probably should have put the soil on the bottom)
#2: Charcoal (necessary so that the plants don't mold or smell)
(my fail: the rocks weren't supportive enough as a layer so the charcoal fell through... also I learned later that you can crush up the charcoal and put it in with the soil)
(my fail: it looks cute now but when the soil went on top it covered a lot of it up)
#4 & #5 Soil & Plants
(my fail: the jar was super hard to plan the succulents in there and I ended up breaking a lot of them...)
(my fail: you can't really see any of the layers or the plants that well with the top on... )
I guess for my first time it wasn't THAT bad. Needless to say I will be doing things a little different next time!
Has anyone else tried to make them? How did it go for you?
