5 MINUTE DIY – Star Wars Succulent Pots
There is no denying that the force of the succulent is strong. We love these sturdy plants, we especially love the fact that they are hard to kill. Do we dare call them Jedi plants?
When we saw these $3 Star Wars coin banks at the TARGET One Spot (dollar spot) we snagged them up for a fun and easy DIY.
Star Wars Succulent Pots
ESTIMATED TIME: 5 Minutes
ESTIMATED Cost: $5 for 1 or $10 for a set
● Star Wars coin banks $3
● Small succulents $2
● 1 cup warm soapy water
● Wash rag
● Clean dish towel
● Extra potting soil (optional)
With warm soapy water and a wash rag, carefully remove the price sticker from the coin bank and then dry it off with a clean dish towel.
Make three holes in the bottom of the coin bank. Succulents do better in pots that have drainage holes.
Prepare the succulents to go in the pots. Chose which succulent is going in which pot. Discard the top of the coin bank, and fill the pots with extra potting soil if your succulent came in a small planter pot.
Carefully remove the succulents from the planter pots and put them inside the coin banks.
Wipe down the coin banks and the succulents to remove any dirt that might have gotten on them. Now the best part, display your Star Wars succulent pots! Let everyone know what a Star Wars fan you are.
CARING FOR SUCCULENTS
Succulents are easy to care for. You don’t have to water them very often. In fact, if you live in a humid climate let them dry out thoroughly between watering. They are sturdy plants and they like to suck out the water from the air instead of the soil. Spraying them with clean fresh water once a week is a great way to not over water. If you are keeping them indoors go for the green variety, the purple and orange ones do better outside. And don’t forget, Succulents love sunlight they are desert plants after all. If you live in a dimly lit apartment, be sure to move your plants closer to the sun at least once a week so they can soak up those rays.
