Dollar Tree and Goodwill Creations

I love succulents. They are beautiful and very hard to kill. These are my kind of plants. I am also addicted to Pinterest. This Post is inspired by the beautiful succulent plant arrangements I view on Pinterest. I went to my local Dollar Tree Store and picked up some supplies
1 Bag  of each Small rocks and Large Rocks
1 Bag of  moss ( it includes three types) .
1 container of Aqua Beads

Next , I head to my local Goodwill and pick up containers that are half price that day. I can pick up a container for $2-$3. The most you will pay at Goodwill is about $7 for a container. It really depends what you are looking for. 

Once I have purchased my supplies , I come home a create some amazing arrangements. I make sure that I clean the containers before I begin. 

I fill the containers with a layer of large rocks , then layer small rocks on top. I move the rocks around until I get the desired look I want. 

Then I add the thick moss on top of the rocks.  I make sure that I press the moss down so I get a nice layered look going on from the side views. 

Then once I have pressed the thicker moss down I add some aqua beads. These beads can be purchased at the Dollar Store as well. They are a substitute for soil. They retain moister , when they shrink it is time to water your plant . 

Once I had added about a 1/2 cup of aqua beads ,  I add my next layer to moss, which is finer in texture and brighter in color. 
With 1 bag of small rocks , 2 bags of large rocks, and 1 bag of moss; I was able to make three arrangement containers.

Now time to add the succulents. I clip succulents from my mothers garden. 
She is my supplier ( Wink , Wink ) . Thanks mom. 

Once I have about 6 to 8 clippings, arrange them in the pot. I use bobby pins to hold them in place. I move them around until I get the desired look. 

I also add ribbon or decorative craft tape to give it a finished appearance. 

Here is the finished product. It took me about 20 minute to complete it. I had all the supplies ready to go . it is a great gift for anyone. I made a few for friends and the ladies at the front office. I can't wait to see what everyone makes. Talk to you all soon.

I am addicted to Pintrest. I just love all the cool things i have found. Yet , i have not made very many of them . I have tried a few recipes and have not had a bad one yet. I feel like PIntrest keeps me in the loop with all the old and new craft projects.

I will be crafting again. I recently started working on mustache glasses for a friend. They are very popular . I have some weird obsession with mustaches. You shouldn't be shocked if you get a gift from me with a mustache on it.

I am going to start blogging more, is there anything that anyone would like to see on the blog?

I cant wait to hear from my only follower .......Rachel!! hahah I need to get my blog out there!!

Hugs and Kisses,
