let's get crafty + freebies: DIY rock succulents + printable occasion flags + gift tag.






I spotted this project on Pinterest and couldn't wait for a crafternoon to work on it with my daughters. We love going for nature walks and one of our favourite things to do is throw rocks into the river, and along the way, pick our favourites and bring them home.

I loosely followed this tutorial and created my own collection of DIY rock succulents. I arranged the cacti in a simple terracotta pot filled with decorative sand.  I designed a set of printable flag inserts with messages suited to any occasion along with a gift tag with a cute poem with room for a signature on the bottom.  The flag inserts are simply folded at the end, wrapped around a toothpick and secured with a dab of hot glue. You can use these printables to accompany a real succulent plant or terrarrium as well!

This craft makes a wonderful, inexpensive, unique gift for anyone... especially someone lacking a green thumb like me!  And just in time for school's end, this immortal plant would be a lovely gift for your favourite teacher.
