UPCYCLING: K Cup Succulent Pots

Recycled K Cup Succulent Pots - homework (11)Earth Day is around the corner and I love making recycled or upcyled projects even if it’s not in honor of Earth Day. One of my guilty pleasures is my Keurig Coffee Maker. I drink coffee throughout the day and having that fresh little cup of coffee is so darn nice. Except for the plastic K Cups that pile up. I can’t wait for the coffee manufactures to all move to a biodegradable container. I heard it’s coming soon.

ETCETERAS: Sea Glass Succulent Bowl

Sea Glass Succulent Bowl - homework (4)It wouldn’t be summer if I didn’t create some type of beachy coastal décor piece and this one is a quick and easy. The sea glass is from a floral arrangement I received years ago. The vase was filled with these beautiful glass chips and of course I washed and saved them.

The Dirt: little shells and succulents

 
I'm having so much fun bringing touches of summer inside my home.


 
I saw this great idea to Summer-ize your home in Better Homes and Gardens. A nice big over sized shell filled with succulents.

I was fresh out of giant oversized shells but I did have some small scallop shells. And since succulents are pretty hardy, I thought they might not mind a small little shell home.

I clipped some new growth off some of my established succulents and nestled them into the pebbles.

You can use them in a variety of ways.

A centerpiece

Décor

Or even place cards

If they take root,  I’ll have to move them from their little starter homes. But for now, I’m enjoying them as they are.

The Dirt: Summer Succulents

I’ve wanted to make a centerpiece with succulents for awhile and was inspired by the three ceramic jars I found at the 99₵ store recently. Bright yellow jars perfect for summer.


I finally got to the nursery today and ooh - the selection. I had a hard time deciding but finally settled on three hardy-looking guys. I would tell you their proper names but they didn’t come with those little plastic plant sticks and I forgot to ask.

The succulents were easy to transplant into the jars and they seem perfectly happy in the dining room or on the patio.



I think my nameless succulents and bright yellow pots will keep me in a summer mood for a long time.
