DIY Miniature Garden With Seashells

Any idea, how mini can be a miniature garden inside your home? Look here; these shell-plotted succulents are all real. Since childhood I love gathering seashells (like most of the kids), but with a vague idea to reuse them in something creative and beautiful. I knew nothing more than colouring them or decorate with glitters. Now Megan surprised me with her innovative gardening style.

Megan from Los Angeles is the brilliant blogger behind In Words & Pictures, where she created a tutorial called Miniature Gardens: Shell-Potted Succulents describing how to grow plants inside snail shells. Snail shells are perfect for this as they have some depth to be filled with soil inside. Succulents are the best plants for these since they don’t require much water, so you can get away with keeping them in this tiny planter. I know you must me excited to try at your own, so just click over to Megan’s post for the tutorial. Good luck!
