I've had my eye on these plumbing bits and bobs from the hardware store for months now waiting for the right project to come along and warrant a purchase. Fast forward to today and I have bought all the pipe fittings in all the colours and made all the tiny succulent planters. Because hashtag industrial. And succulents. And tiny.
And can we just talk about this $2 giant cube ice tray from Kmart for a sec? Perfect right?
Make your own! You'll need: plaster of paris (concrete would work really well too), pipe fittings, some sort of mould (I suggest silicon to ease the pop out), some potting soil, succulent cuttings.
Do this: Mix plaster of paris and water according to the packet specifications. I went for a 70ml water to 100g plaster ratio.
Fill mould to the 3/4ish mark then put aside for about 10 minutes. I guess setting time would depend on the size of your mould but you want it to be solid enough to not let the pipe fittings sink down but not solid enough to not let you insert this. Insert said pipe fitting then scoop out the excess plaster that is filling up your holey bit.
Pop out of the mould once hard and give a quick wipe with a wet cloth. All the smudged plaster should come off pretty easily.
At this point you can paint your plaster, if you so wish.
Plant some cuttings. Feel smug and way fancy.
