Instructions for making a succulent in seashell planter
Make sure your shell doesn’t have any large holes on the back side. Then simply put the succulent soil in the shell, you’ll only need a bit.
Gently remove the succulent plant from it’s container and place it in the dirt in the shell. You can use just one or a few, it’s up to you.
I like to add a little moss to cover the dirt but again, that’s up to you.
Pop a gift tag on and you’re done!
