Succulents are great plants to give as Christmas gifts, since A) they are still green during the winter, B) they are fairly cheap to buy, and C) they are easy to grow and take care of. I mean, I having been growing several for over a year, and I haven’t killed them yet. If I can manage to keep a plant alive, it’s got to be a pretty hardy specimen.
Unfortunately, the pots the succulents are sold in aren’t very attractive. Today I am showing you how to turn a tin can from your recycling bin into a festive planter. This post is part of the newest Crafty Hangouts series, which has been sponsored by Duck Brand™.
Really any succulent you buy will look great in one of these planters, but there are some varieties that may even bloom in winter for your giftee. Aloe and jade bloom in the winter months. You can also choose a Christmas cactus, or other drought resistant plant, that blooms any time of year.
