It is one of the best things ever when you have a creative idea and then it turns out exactly as you had envisioned. What I am showing you today is just that.
After seeing this pattern for crochet succulents in tiny mason jars, I was reminded of an adorable elephant planter that I got from my sister-in-law for Christmas a few years ago. It had been sitting in the back of a closet, empty, because while I knew succulents would look great growing inside it, I seem to be a little handicapped when it comes to growing them. I know they are supposed to be foolproof to grow, but mine always die - read into that what you will. But crochet succulents! Well those don't die, and so last week, camped out on the sofa, I made a few for my planter. To say I am pleased would be an understatement....I love it!

Thank you Irune.Delete
That is really cute. I love the colors, the plants almost look like real cacti.ReplyDelete
Thank you Jennifer, and I love that these plants won't die on me...Delete
That look great. The planter is so cool and you have a bonus of them not growing any bigger and swamping the elephant :)ReplyDelete
You're right Bekki, my succulents will stay neatly tucked inside my elephant...another bonus. Thanks for stopping by.Delete
This is a great project!! No leggy succulents here - just perfect ones that will stay in their container without watering and maintenance! So cute!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. No maintenance plants, that do not die, are the best...Delete
