Gardening Inspired by Pinterest - Using Succulents

Gardening Inspired by Pinterest

Is there anyone who doesn’t know what Pinterest is these days? It’s like an awesome set of virtual bulletin boards, where you can collect, save, and easily organize all of the cool stuff you find online. It’s full of amazingly creative ideas and projects to inspire youtr real life – So as I’m planning and putting together my garden this spring, it’s an obvious choice to head to Pinterest for ideas. One big trend that I’ve seen there lately that I totally LOVE is decorating with succulents – whether it’s in the garden, putting them into planters or pots, or even using them in vertical wall art, I’m SUCH a fan of them! {I even just put a few into jars as part of my #DIYChallenge Mirror Makeover. Turned out super cute.} And since I’m not the only one loving succulents this spring, Home Depot is offering a whole Do-It-Herself Workshop series around the country to show you some great tips on using them in your home – And I am crazy-excited to be a part of these awesome workshops.
