Sometimes I think crafts are geared towards girls.

But I have two grandsons.

Remove a section of the toy, make sure there’s enough room for soil and your succulent.

Spray paint.

Wrap brick with moss, adhere with hot glue gun.

Add felt to the bottom of the brick (I used felt that had adhesive on the bottom).

Place potting soil in the planting area.

Plant succulent.

    Love, love, love your easily are these maintained? I CANNOT believe you’re a grandmother. I’ve been recently attracted to succulents. I know I cannot disturb the stash of dinos I have in the storage, so I guess I’ll be shopping.
