Turn An Old Birdcage Into An Ornate Succulent Planter


Has your green thumb come down with a case of the of the winter blues? Why not try a little indoor gardening with this DIY birdcage succulent planter by Lucy of craftberry bush?

These guys don’t mind whether they are planted in the shade or in the sun. But I have found that they do a little better when they are not in direct sun. It is important that you do not over water succulents, a good tip is that the thicker the leaf the less water they require. A good soak once a week will suffice and keep them going for days to come.

So go ahead and share the rest of your seasonal captivity with some succulent inmates with the help of this handy tutorial!
