DIY Succulent Shoes
Give new life to an old pair of shoes with this revamp using Country Chic Paint!
- Old Shoes
- Potting Soil
- Small Stones or Sand
Choose a pair of old shoes that you no longer wear but are still in decent condition. Rubber rain boots, sneakers, or leather shoes work well for this project. Avoid shoes with large holes or extensive damage.
Clean the shoes thoroughly, removing any dirt or debris both inside and outside. Allow them to dry completely before moving to the next step.
Using a pencil or marker, outline where you want the plant openings to be on the shoes. Consider the size and shape of the succulents you’ll be planting.
To ensure proper drainage for the succulents, use the craft knife or a small drill to create a few drainage holes at the bottom of each shoe.
Place a layer of small stones or pebbles at the bottom of each shoe to aid in drainage. This will prevent the succulent roots from sitting in excess water.
Carefully remove the succulents from their pots, loosening the root ball if necessary. Place them into the prepared openings in the shoes, pressing the soil gently around the roots to secure them.
Find a suitable location in your garden that provides the right amount of sunlight for your succulents. Most succulents thrive in bright, indirect light.
