A green thumb I am not. By any means. I seriously have killed every single plant I have attempted to grow, whether in my home or out in the yard. Even the “unkillable” succulent plants don’t stand a chance against me. So when I saw this fun project kit in the new Occasions Catalog, I got super excited.
This Vertical Garden kit is perfect for someone like me. I can enjoy the look of succulents in my home without worrying about the need to water or give it the right amount of sunlight. And it was so much fun making all of the succulents and flowers.
I just love what you can do with paper. These die cut pieces look so much like real succulents once you curl the leaves and layer them together. Add in the rolled paper flowers and you get a beautiful combination for the perfect wall hanging, no watering required!
The Vertical Garden Project Kit comes with everything you need to create this fun décor piece for your home. Use a bone folder to curl up the leaves of the die cut pieces (like how you would use scissors to curl ribbon) and layer together to get the perfect, round succulent. If you want to add a little more depth and dimension to the succulents, try inking the edges of the leaves using brown or even a pink ink. Use a glue gun to adhere everything to the flower box. Then just add a sentiment from the Vertical Garden Stamp Set to finish it off.
It’s perfect for hanging on your front door or on a wall in your home. I am displaying mine on our fireplace mantle. It complements our other décor pieces perfectly! And I don’t have to worry about killing off these plants, so double win!
