Succulent plants make such an ideal gift for anyone who’s into decorating their homes. They can put them up as is or they can boost their decorative styling and make them the center of attention. Succulent plants are resilient against any kind of weather conditions and maintenance routines. In fact, even the most non-green thumb person in the world can easily take care of succulent plants.
If you ever want to liven up your space with plants and other kinds of “living” decors, there’s no need to settle with high-maintenance froufrou plants anymore. Succulent plants offer so many possibilities that will allow you to make them the centerpiece of your living areas.
1. Put Them Inside a Glass Dome
If you have an unfinished ceramic base sitting in your basement, you can put the succulent plants there and then cover it up with a glass dome you can pick up basically in any department store. It opens up the space because you can see right through the glass dome. Plus, doesn’t it look like Disney’s single red rose from Beauty and the Beast?
2. Use a Geometric Vase
Want to go more modern? A geometric vase has that modern but minimalist appeal to it. The clean lines of a geometric vase can make any décor more pristine and elegant. It’s unique and certainly not something you’ll find anywhere.
3. Hang Them in Globes
If you live in a condominium or in a high-rise apartment, you may want to hang the succulent plants near your window, so that it can get the sunlight they need. Choose a transparent circular vase and hang them near the window, so that you can create a garden-like feeling inside your homes. If you want colored vases, you can go with them, too.
4. Ball Them Up
Using a wire mesh or a cotton thread, turn the moss into a ball and plant the succulents into them. Since these are open kinds of vases, you need to put these outside because they’ll dirty up your living rooms. This is perfect, too, if you want a rustic theme in your homes.
5. Create a Mini Zen Garden
Instead of taking care of a bonsai plant, you can choose succulent plants instead. Put sand or soil in a clear vase, and then, place the succulent plants in it. It’ll create such a peaceful atmosphere in your homes. You can let it be or you can even put designs on the sand.
6. Turn Them Into Your Table Centerpiece
Do you have a picnic table outside? Why not turn an ordinary table into something cute and rustic? You can cut an opening on the center of the table and put some stones and the succulent plants there. It’s a good idea for designing your backyard.
7. Put them in Your Bathrooms
You can buy a marble tray where you can put the succulent plants along with some decorative stones and sand on it. Put your soap, body oil, and lotion beside the plant and give the room that homey atmosphere.
