I was strolling through Home Depot the other day when I came across some cool looking succulents in the house plant section. They were neon colored lime, orange and purple little plants. As I was checking them out, trying to figure out how nature could make such vibrant colors, I realized they were actually painted!
Those little succulents were a little pricey considering they were just spray painted plants but since I had some succulents at home I thought it would be fun to play around with paint and make my succulents a little crazier.
This is a fun craft to get kids involved in. My three year old Chloe saw me getting out the paints and got very excited. She loves to do crafts (I wonder where she gets that from?)
You may remember these succulents from my Himalayan Salt Planter post from a couple weeks back. I had some others sitting on a shelf in my dining room that I snagged, as well as some latex paint from my craft room and I started making tiny dots all over the leaves.
This project is pretty simple. Just take a toothpick, dip it into some paint and make dots all over your succulent.
Once you are content with your painted succulent set it aside to dry.
This is the one that Chloe made:
This is a great rainy day project for the whole family to get involved with.
