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 was super easy to make these. I filled the bottom about half way with stones, and the remainder with potting soil. I’m embarrassed to say that is it!
Easy peezy pumpkin breezy!

So very cute, Holly. I’m sure they’ll do well as part of your collection. And stepson has great taste! (purple is my favorite color, too) 🙂
Hi Susan – We had a fun trip to Home Depot that day! Purple rocks – one of my favorites too! Hugs, Holly
Love the back story to your darling succulents in vintage tins. You are a pretty amazing woman. My mother is a breast cancer survivor, so the cause is near and dear to my heart. I love this project and would love it if you’d link it up with us at Vintage Charm. We open on Thursdays at 8 am.
