Let me start this post by saying that whatever the opposite of a green thumb is, I have it. I am a professional plant killer, and no, I am not proud of it. Well, when I recently stumbled upon a collection of succulents and I fell in love. However, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to give them the love and care that they needed to survive. After talking to a very helpful associate at The Home Depot, I was reassured that succulents were actually the plant for me... and now I'm head over heels. Now that I am the proud parent of three adorable succulents, I knew it was time to make them some cute homes. Hence, where a leftover pallet in my backyard came into play. I created fun and recycled planters for my new babes in about an hour --- and they were FREE.
