Instructions for making a succulent in seashell planter

     DIY gift idea for beach lover 

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.

Perfect gift for plant lover  

I like to add a little moss to cover the dirt but again, that’s up to you.
