Easy DIY Succulent Centerpiece
Leave colorful containers of hardy plants outside for a fun focal point
You can't get much lower maintenance than this: Fill colorful empty tins with an array of succulents, such as aloe, zebra plant, sedum, and cactus. Because they thrive in direct sun, you can leave them outside all summer, provided they have good drainage.
To get started, drill small holes in the bottom of clean cans and fill with a fast-draining cactus-and-succulent planting mix. Pot up the plants and top with decorative gravel.
Grouped together, they make a striking and fuss-free display—no green thumb required.
