Adding succulents to vintage tins is nothing new, but I’m totally crushing on these colorful cacti succulents! Have you seen anything like this before?
I love it when an unplanned plan comes together! When Stepson and I were at Home Depot picking up some yellow paint for the Pee Potty-Flower Potty project, he spotted these adorable colorful cacti.
“Can I get one of these for my Mom?”
“Sure! What color do you think she will like?”
“The purple one. Definitely purple.”
So we picked up the purple one for Stepson’s Bio Mom, and the red, green, and yellow ones for me. See…awhile back, I found these super cute vintage tins in an antique store. I knew that “someday” I wanted to fill them with succulents. But these cacti stole my heart.
It’s been awhile since I’ve made a project for the Fortitude Collection, and this one is perfect for the collection.
It was super easy to make these. I filled the bottom about half way with stones, and the remainder with potting soil. Easy peezy pumpkin breezy!
So what’s The Fortitude Collection? Finding beauty in the broken. This item is a piece of a new collection which parallels my journey as a breast cancer survivor. While going through treatment, I was bald, missing part of my breast, and thrown into early chemical menopause. I was completely broken and my self-esteem was shattered. When I hit rock bottom, I had to pick myself up and redefine true beauty.
Each item in this collection is one-of-a-kind and handmade. They are pieces that were old, and/or rusted, and/or covered in dirt and cobwebs, and/or ready for the trash or landfill. They are the pieces that everyone else thinks are worthless and should be thrown away. With a little bit of creativity and a lot of love, I have resurrected these items into beautiful treasures.
100% of the profits from this collection will be channeled into Pink Fortitude, LLC’s breast cancer awareness and advocacy program via book donations to cancer centers, awareness materials, and donations.
