DIY planters and succulents

Planter 01 Planter 02

I have an odd obsession with succulents, its everywhere in my house.  Who doesn’t like those cute fat leaves!

Since I am running out of planter and I have some extra ready to use concrete mix, why not turn the concrete into planter?  There are tons of tutorials from the pinterest, they are so easy to make!!  I have more than 30 different kind of succulents, here are some of them.  They are not perfect but I am still learning how to take care of them.

I haven’t made any frame purse for a while and for some reason I really wanted to hand sew them. Usually, it would take me less than 2 hours to make one, but without sewing machine they took me 3 nights (not the whole night of course).  Very time consuming but I like the way they turn out.  Especially the lace one, adding beads to it just make it looks super fancy.  I am using 10cm frame, pretty big.  It can fit a stand size digital camera!!

I found an old/beat up box in my storage closet, I think I got it from like 8-9 years ago.  It is a nice sturdy cardboard box, I don’t want to just throw it away so I wrap it with a layer of fabric and add some leather details to give it a new life.  Recycling is always good~~
