Succulents are the ultimate non-green-thumb plant to work with, you’d be hard pressed to kill them, simply snip off a sprig and replant it and ta-dah you’ve got succulent babies and they can live for months in just a little moss too. If you loved our egg shell DIY from last week but want something thats going to last a little longer then succulents are the answer. These made great centrepieces in their dodo vine nests sitting up in the West Elm animal print bowls in this Easter table and are a great project for kids to get involved in too.
- Empty eggshells
- Moss (available from most florists)
- Succulent cuttings
- You want eggshells that have the top third cracked off. I found the easiest way to achieve this was to crack the egg where I wanted it to break off by tapping it with a butter knife and then gently taking off the top third of shell.
- Wash and dry out the inside of the eggs
- Take a small clump of moss and either dip into some water or spray with water from a spray bottle
- Press moss into the eggshell
- Push succulent cuttings into the moss
- Gently water
