my sister, picking up a tip from my little readymade magazine spread, gave me this lovely little trio of succulents for x-mas:
and today, i just got around to repotting them.
partly because i'm too broke and time-strapped to be going out and buying proper planters, and partly because i'm a maniac for using resources wisely and responsibly, i opted to plant them in tin (aluminum) cans. my town doesn't recycle these - which really burns me up - so i saved these from the garbage, washed them out, coated them with spray paint, put some rocks in the bottoms for drainage, and called them planters. i originally thought i was going to wrap them in twine, too (laying it in the can ridges), but i tried that and ultimately preferred the simplicity of the white.
yeeeeeeaaah home crafts!
(thanks, nerdy! xo.)
