Make this pretty and inexpensive re-purposed terrarium or dish plant for you home! This faceted light fixture was picked up at the thrift store, you can find them there all the time. They were ubiquitous in the nineties and resemble the pricey products that are popular now. Perfect! If you can’t find something faceted, you can use many other things, like jars, vases, bowls and what have you. And if you happen to be a low maintenance kind of person, you can skip the live succulents and buy the fake ones from ikea.
succulents (you can pick up fake ones too here)
plastic sheet of some kind (to cover the holes)
ceiling light fixture (thrift store) or something with faceted sides
1. Cut something plastic (for example this place-mat) to fit inside the fixture and cover the holes that were once used for wiring.
2. Line the bottom with rocks in order for the water to drain.
3. Make sure that you pick out succulents with different textures and shapes and the same or very similar care instructions.
4. Spray the plants with water until the soil is soft and the roots are loose. Plant them in the fixture with extra soil.
5. Add a few rocks on the top and find a cute place for the final product.
