Here’s how to make DIY Succulent Favors:

You will need:

We used Hens and Chicks wedding succulents because they were WAY more affordable than other varities. We purchased a 12 pack for $10. Other varieties of succulents at our local nursery were $5-$10 each!!

Place potting soil into container. We filled ours about half full.


Remove succulent from package. You might have to remove some of the earth from the plant to fit it into your container.


Place succulent into container and add more potting soil.


Pack potting soil around the plant using your fingers.


Finish off by adding colored sand or stones to the surface of the potting soil. We used black sand.






How’s that for budget-friendly vintage chic?
