Last week my hubs just got home from a long ten day underway. Ten days really isn’t a long time especially when he’s been gone for much longer but I’m telling you those ten days felt like ETERNITY. Ten days, alone, with a toddler is hard. Don’t get me wrong, every day is special and awesome , it really is, but no day is without challenges. One day, towards the end of the underway, we just had to get out of the house and we ended up at the pet store (!!!). It was a super hot day so the beach or park were out of the question and well, P loves animals so the pet store totally made sense.
We browsed around, talked to the turtles, blowed kisses to the fish, waved to the birds, and as I was leading her towards the exit I spied these gorgeous BRIGHT PINK pebbles and I thought it might be the best idea ever to use them in a planter.
Succulent Planters with Neon Pink Pebbles
After we spent approximately 19 hours in the pet store obsessing over all of the animals and leaving with nothing except for the pink aquarium gravel it was nap time for P and project time for me.
I got this big ol’ 5 pound bag of neon pink pebbles for about $4. I started with this faux plant from IKEA. This plant has been in P’s room for a few weeks since we are working on her big girl room. I covered up the really obviously fake dirt with the pink pebbles and it instantly looked awesome.
Since I had a bag full of pink pebbles, no succulent was safe. I popped this cute little one into a tea cup and dotted it with some gold paint for a chic little succulent planter.
Can you even handle these succulent planters?? Imagine the possibilities! Pink, black, yellow, those pebbles come in a gazillion colors!
I’m always amazed at where inspiration strikes. Pet store today, who knows where tomorrow. Happy Thursday!
