DIY teardrop planters (1)

hello, friends! i’ve been on a diy kick lately, can you tell? (with lots more coming!) i was so inspired to make these teardrop planters after i saw the tutorial over on vintage revivals. i followed mandi’s instructions exactly and they turned out wonderful!

i keep them hung from a curtain rod by our large sliding glass doors in the living room. i love how cheery they are that they add a splash of gold to the area. i purchased these little white bowls from ikea and filled them with drapey succulents.

they really were pretty easy to make, other than the fact i had to cut up a bunch of pipes. it wasn’t really difficult, just time consuming. i think i cut pipes every night for a few weeks! the end result was definitely worth it though. head on over to vintage revivals to grab the tutorial!

repotting plants

hi friends! this week, i’ve been busy re-potting some of my plants. getting some green going on in our new place was just about first on the list of importance. some of these are old while others are newly found, and almost all of the planters have been found or thrifted for.

a little bit of a green house is what i ended up with! it’s one of my favorite places in the house. most of the new plants i’ve accumulated are succulents. i love them, becuase they come in so many varieties and are so easy to care for. just water twice a month and you should be good to go- now that’s my kind of plant! here are some succulent inspired planters that i’ve enjoyed finding for you:
