A lovely garden DIY in preparation for spring!
Ooh boy, it has been a while, but I am back at it again with the pintrest-ey DIYs.
Its common knowledge among my friends and family that I have a hard time keeping plants alive. Just to put it in context, I had a mini celebration when I kept one alive for 3 weeks because, and I quote, I felt like a real adult keeping something alive longer than a fortnight…. it died 3 days later.
After dismantling Christmas corner, I needed something to fill the void, and incorporate my love for plants. That’s when the teapot plant pot idea was born.
I popped to Homebase after work one day last week, armed with a voucher I got as a birthday gift last year and proceeded to mooch around, picking up the items I actually needed y’know light fittings, timer switches real boring adult things. After I’d shopped for the necessities, I realised I still had £10 to spend on the voucher, cue the plant shopping.
I found 3 mini cacti and a Venus flytrap and I couldn’t help myself. I then jumped online and ordered a 2 cup teapot and matching tea cups.
This is what happened…
Hope you’ve enjoyed this little Spring DIY!
Let me know how long you think I can keep these alive.
Also, these would make cute AF Valentines presents, just pair them with a card that says something like
Cact-I Love you
This is my second favourite prick, next to you!
