DIY Succulents: From Placecards to Wreaths, 35+ Ideas for Creative Projects with Succulents


If you visit this blog often, you've probably started to wonder why we haven't posted any DIY tutorials in what feels like forever! Well, I'm so excited to finally announce what we've been up to and why there hasn't been much going on here on the blog. 

About 6 months ago we were approached by a publisher to write a DIY Succulents book! Succulents + photography + crafty projects + writing all about it... of course we said YES! We came up with 35+ (I think there are actually 38!) succulent related DIY projects that are super cute and pretty easy to create.

The book is divided into two parts. Part One includes a Succulents 101 chapter which covers what exactly makes a succulent plant "a succulent," common varieties of succulents, how and where to buy succulents, succulents alongside children and pets, the best pots for succulents, how to care for your succulents, and how to overcome problems with your succulents. In Chapter 2, I go into detail on how to propagate your succulents from cuttings and leaves including photos of what the cut ends of your plants should look like after they have calloused over. Part Two of the book is packed with fun projects for your home and garden! Each project includes a supplies list, step by step instructions with photos, care instructions and tips for customizing your gorgeous creations! 

DIY Succulents was such a fun project to work on, we can't wait for you all to get your hands on a copy!
