Succulent Projects
Haworthia Propagate Succulents

Anyone can be a successful gardener if they’re willing to try (and can forgive themselves for killing a plant or two along the way). So don’t let the word “propagate” intimidate you – especially when it comes to succulents! These tough, forgiving plants make propagating a snap. Give this practically goof-proof method a try and gain some serious green-thumb confidence over winter that can help boost your gardening skills in spring (as well as your plant collection)!
Wreath Create a Succulent Wreath

Would you like to spruce up your holidays with a homemade wreath but would prefer not to use the same old, tired evergreens and pinecones? Try something different this year and use succulents instead. These drought-tolerant, fleshy plants come together nicely to create a neat wreath that, with proper care, can be enjoyed year-round. This simple craft is easy, as well as beautiful – not to mention a unique way to bring some fun Southwest flavor to your indoor décor.
