I think I was about 11 when my fascination with Martha Stewart began. I watched her first TV show on Lifetime religiously and asked for a subscription to Living for my 12th birthday. Even at that age I attempted a few of Martha's crafts and decorating ideas, one of which was the succulent wreath. I thought it was one of the coolest things I had ever seen and I remember buying the baby succulents and trying to put the wreath together with my oldest sister. I've honed my crafting skills a lot since then, and thank goodness for that, because our wreath didn't look near as good as Martha's when it was finished.
Sister, what do you say we give it another go? Find the instructions here.
I've been on a succulent kick since a couple of weeks ago when I received a little succulent in a hand potted pot as a favor at my good friend Nancy's wedding. I thought it was one of the more thoughtful and useful favors I have ever received. As I have been giving my little guy lots of sun and a little bit of water, I've been dreaming of planting a full on succulent garden. Here are some photos I am gathering for inspiration.
P.S. If Pinterest and Google image search were in a match up for best place to search photos, Pinterest would win...blindfolded.
