I love succulents as much as the next girl, but I also love almonds…a lot. So what do these two things have to do with one another? Well, I had all these almond cans laying around and a bunch of succulents waiting to be planted in the backyard….so I came up with this little project, with the help of some extra hemming tape I had lying around. All in all, the project didn’t cost me a thing because I had all the materials already. BUT if you need to go out and purchase materials, the cost is still quite low, at under $5 a pop.
Materials: Empty Can(s), Succulents (or another plant of your choice), Potting Soil, Hemming Tape, and Craft Glue
How To: 1. Remove all labels and sticky goo from can(s). 2. Secure end of hemming tape to the top of the can with a bead of craft glue. Then begin wrapping the hemming tape around and around the can. 3. Once the can is fully covered, cut hemming tape and secure end again with bead of glue. 4. Next, add small amount of potting soil to bottom of can. 5. Gently break up the roots from your potted succulent and plant into can. 6. Add more potting soil and enjoy!
Or you could skip the hemming tape all together and keep them plain…
