Halloween is turning my black thumb green. Last week I shared my little pumpkin patch I planted as an experiment. (One I’m expecting to end badly…) This week I have a fun idea that can turn any living space a little spooky.
But first, I want to talk about your Halloween junk. And I mean junk in the most loving way possible because we all know…we have a little too much Halloween, right? But let’s get more specific: by junk I mean the odds and ends in your Halloween collection that you can never seem to find a spot for come October.
That’s where today’s post starts.
Just a few weeks ago, one of my work BFFs gifted me this guy:
The moment I saw him…I had a vision. I knew he would never hold Witches’ Brews. He was going to have a much different purpose.
So fun, right? Succulents are great little plants that come in small enough sizes…your can tuck them inside just about anything – including all those Halloween items you’re not sure what to do with!
And, best of all for me, that’s pretty difficult to kill!
What a perfect use for this cup. I found one other Halloween item in my collection that lent itself well to planting succulents, and I love how both turned out. They’re helping keep the Spooky Little Apartment, well, spooky! But more on that in just a minute…
Here’s a look inside my Halloween succulent planting process:
I also amassed a little collection of these cauldrons, so I thought planting a succulent in one would be perfect.
I LOVE this one.
And I love the coloring on this one – purple and spooky!
This one totally looks like something a witch would grow.
He just needs a worm crawling through there to be extra spooky!
So where did these Halloween succulents end up in the Spooky Little Apartment?
For that, you’ll have to stay tuned until next month! I’m in the process of re-vamping my bedroom, and these succulent planters are part of the spooky makeover I’ll be unveiling. I can’t wait to share it with you!
