While at Goodwill the other day I found these two picture frames and just knew they would make great succulent planters. When looking for picture frames that can easily be recycled into succulent planters look for shadow boxes or picture frames that are fairly deep, because you will need to add soil to your planter.
Here is what you will need:
Various Succulent plant cuttings
Caulk or glue
Scissors or wire snips
Duct Tape (optional)
Here are the steps:
|3. Once caulk is dry place the back on the picture frame. You may have to caulk the backing on to the picture frame if it doesn't have metal tabs to keep it in place.|
|4. This picture frame I had to caulk into place. I had put duct tape on it just to keep it in place until caulk dried.|
|6. Then start adding your succulent cuttings in any pattern you see fit.|
|7. Then set picture frame in shade for a few weeks while cuttings take root.|
This is another shadow box frame I found at Goodwill that day, and here is it's transformation.
You are an artist. That is cool.
Just think of all the succulents you could use! I have to use only winter hardy ones.
