CELEBRATIONS: Cinco de Mayo Succulent Cans

Cinco de Mayo Succulent Cans via homework | carolynshomework.com Happy Cinco de Mayo friends! In honor of the Mexican holiday which is widely celebrated here in Southern California, I whipped up some fun Salsa Can Succulents and decorated them with some papel picado flags.

I liked this fierce little guy. I found him in a pot I had neglected for months happily growing next to his mom.

  1. Ooh, I'm so attracted to great advertising on can labels, and I love the way you've used these little ones. I used to have a whole lot of olive oil cans (who knew there are hundreds of brands in bright, shiny cans?) displayed on top of my kitchen cabinets, but when we remodeled, I used that space for more storage. Now I have only one tiny mustard tin. You always make the simple look so elegant - and useful.
