Oh My Gosh… I am in love with these sweet little succulents Kitty and I planted in antique wooden thread spools. They sit on my windowsill and look so utterly adorable.
We found the antique wooden spools at a garage sale a few weeks ago – $2 for a bag of about 50!
We collected the succulents from our friends and neighbors (we live in Southern California where succulents are abundant). Succulents are amazingly easy to grow from snippings – snip off a tiny stem and plant. A root will grow.
We chose the littlest stems.
We used a chopstick to fill the wooden spools with soil and a toothpick to make a hole in the soil for the succulent stem to fit in.
Voila… the sweetest little succulent flowerpots on earth!
I have to smile. I started off with 8 on my windowsill.
One by one, they have disappeared into Kitty’s room.
While tidying up this morning, I found the last one in Teddy’s room.
Proof… succulents in antique wooden thread spools are a hit with all ages.
Blessings and magic,
